Saw Faith by HelenKelly at BirminghamUniversity.
Before seeing the play, all I knew was that it had been commissioned for the drama course at BU, and one of the constraints was that there had to be a large number of female lead parts.
The play was set in an anti-war protest in London, which had been cordened off by the police. Caught inside were variouse diverse groups of people: muslim women out food shopping, two catholic girls - one at college and her youngere sister, two girls (Hayley and Becky) escaping from a school trip, some socialists, two (male) louts out for trouble, and two american girls - daughters of a right wing senator.
The set was fairly plain but the struture of the room was used to good effect, with the action "rotating" around the audience as the crowd moved around the raised seating.
At the beginning of the play, the various groups appear on their own, in their own worlds, with their own concerns. By the end, the groups are mixed, people jump from one group to another and have their beliefs challenged by their interactions with others.
Overall, the dialogue was very witty and intelligent, and the play made interesting points about the complexity of beliefs and the clash of contradictory beliefs in a very interesting way.
Certainly a play I'd see again.

Last week I got some great ShiitakeMushrooms at the MoseleyFarmersMarket. I'd heard that, as well as being delicious, they also had some medicinal properties, so I read around a little - ShiitakeMushrooms.
