2Graves
Arts Theatre
 

Oddly enough, Paul Sellar’s 2 graves, a modern monologue in rhyming verse that reopens the West End’s intimate Arts Theatre, tackles a similar theme (Referring to Orestes). It tells the story of a son avenging his father’s unfair dismissal from the 1978 World Darts Championship only to discover that his life has become a meaningless wasteland as a consequence. Though sometimes little better than doggerel, Sellar’s verse often rises to both humour and dramatic excitement, while Jonathan Moore narrates with dour cockney panache. It all proves unexpectedly compelling – and distinctly Euripidean.
