Review: Bloodshot, St James Theatre Studio

This is a really intriguing whodunnit. Simon Slater is excellent as an alcoholic ex-policeman turned failing photographer in 1957 London. He is alone on stage for the best part of two hours, telling the story and impersonating the other characters. It is set in seedy clubland so this involves singing, playing the banjo, playing jazz saxophone and doing close-up magic, all of which he does really well. I daren’t give away anything of the plot, very cleverly crafted by Douglas Post – watch it and find out for yourself. The performance takes place in the intimate surroundings of the St James Theatre Studio, its night club atmosphere suiting the play perfectly. Thoroughly recommended.
