Top Customer Reviews
Powerplay involves four men and two women, as well as the `Ref' who comments on the action in hockey terms. The play is written in a succession of small scenes, while the commentary illuminates them, seeing the interactions between the various characters as a kind of ritual battle, like the complicated set of tactics and rituals which lie at the heart of ice hockey - or of any game which is deeply embedded in a country or a community.
The drama is very good to read - moving, funny, shocking by turns - perhaps even more so if you have some knowledge of just how exciting a game of hockey can be - but it would be even better to see it in performance. The playwright specifies music and video projections, which take the audience through the game in parallel to the emotional and power games which are being played out on stage or - just possibly - on an ice rink somewhere. I wonder if any company out there might be brave enough to stage it? I wish they would!
