Last night we went to mac to see a show which has re-invigorated my faith in fringe theatre. Hysteria was funny, sad and thought-provoking. There were some fantastically well observed pieces of performance, like the stiff waiter who pulls the chair back for the diner, but not quite far enough, leaving the guest to shuffle his way into his seat. Said waiter is also mute, paranoid and has apocalyptic visions. Whilst serving the food. Brilliant.
