I was interested to see how the original Dogme film would translate onto the stage and it worked fantastically. The sparse minimalist set backed up the sparse minimalist dialogue worked amazingly at conveying different rooms, sometimes more than one at the same time, including an intentionally comic moment where the goings-on in three separate bedrooms were played out simultaneously on one bed on the stage. There was no need for the audience to work at suspension of disbelief. The casting was impeccable and the acting brilliant, with long, awkward silences perfectly conveying the tension of a family reunion with skeletons in the closet. One of my top choices of the festival. An absolute must-see performance.
