People Show: 127 Hands Off

The second People Show performance I saw at Toynbee Studios was 127 Hands Off. Based around the concept of digital gaming, it was an amusing, sometimes unsettling exploration of the relationship between players and the characters they control.

Three performers were on stage, directed by people sitting at the front. Sometimes the situations were repetitive, often they were absurd and sometimes downright troubling. Occasionally the repetitiveness got a bit tedious, but soon a scene change would come along to shake up the situation.

In general I found this an enjoyable show, unusual and different, and likely to appeal to gamers and non-gamers alike.
