Review: Seven Methods Of Killing Kylie Jenner, Royal Court - makes a lot of what is on stage look stodgy and staid
It made me feel young and old, angry and ashamed, it was interesting, revealing and funny.
London's theatre scene is awash with productions which offer a 'fresh' take on classics but Jasmine Lee-Jones' play Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner demonstrates exactly what really 'fresh' theatre is - and should be.
Closeted in her bedroom, Cleo (Danielle Vitalis) is venting her anger and frustration at the world using Twitter.
However, she doesn't anticipate the storm she will create not just on social media but with her friend Kara (Tia Bannon).
Starts with a Tweet
It starts with Cleo's sarcastic tweet under her handle @incognegro about reality TV star Kylie Jenner being described as a 'self-made billionaire':
"YT woman born into rich American family, somehow against all odds manages to get more rich..."
She goes on to call out the hypocrisy pointing out the cultural appropriation, colourism and inequality.
A glib death threat becomes a musing on how you kill a 'social media figure' and the ensuing Twitter storm serves to highlight not only the toxicity that exists on social media but within society.
