Confidence

Confidence

3 (2) · Fringe Theatre, Contemporary

Confidence, first produced at Birmingham Rep in 1998 will explode back on to stage, for a new generation of dreamers.

Overview

Mixtapes, Argos catalogue Christmas lists, VHS. Crop tops, chokers, disposable cameras, Boundless Theatre is bringing the 90s back.
As another summer season on the seafront gets underway Ella is turning up the heat in a high stakes game to get as far away as possible.

Whilst Ruby keeps the cafe going and Dean mans the ice cream kiosk Ella learns there’s no fast track to success.

‘If you’re not interested in earning a new pair of Nikes by the end of the day…complete designer wardrobe by the end of the week…all the beers you can drink…if you don’t want to meet Uma Thurman… then okay, stay here, as King of the Slackers, that’s fine by me.’

Critic reviews

A trip to the great British seaside should not be as dismal as this

· Evening Standard

Confidence nails the saucy seaside postcard humour, and the carefully considered staging gives the whole production a beautiful otherworldly feel

· Theatre Weekly

The YouTube star plays a girl trying to escape a failing resort in Rob Drummer’s ill-pitched revival of Judy Upton’s play

· The Guardian

It needs, however, a kind of mad energy and verve, if its imperfections are to be ignored. It also needs more empathy. Both qualities are unfortunately missing here

· WhatsOnStage

A bit lacking in, dare I say, confidence

· Broadway World

YouTube star Tanya Burr is out of her league in this ’90s revuval

· Time Out

Wonderfully designed revival of the 1990s play that stumbles over its bawdy jokes

· The Stage
