Another pointless trailer: Punchdrunk's Drowned Man
Another play another trailer that is all very arty farty and abstract and therefore uninspiring and certainly not illuminating. It shows a naked man running and has flashes (oh stop it) of Hollywood acting legends. As the play's subtitle is: A Hollywood Fable it is hardly giving anything away in that.
Will someone in the theatre world who thinks these are a good idea please tell me what the point of them is? I mean would anyone watch this and go 'ooh that looks interesting where's my credit card I'll buy a ticket'?
Save your money cash strapped arts organisations, buy a few props or a costume or something.
