Off the Record at New Theater Sydney

Enjoyed last night's performance of "Off the Record", by Chris Aronsten. This is a play of the MeToo era, & is topical with the BBC engulfed in another sex scandal. It took some work to understand how the play's disparate themes were being stitched together, but that was rewarding. I did not understand some of the English references, such as describing residential areas with numeric codes. As usual with New Theater, David Marshall-Martin's set design was minimal, but expressive. Suzanne James steals the show as the conspiracy theory loving whistle-blower, and reminding me of some of my New Theater going friends.
