deposit - 'a mini-masterpiece'

fergus morgan, the stage


'Housing is on the agenda. After Sh!t Theatre's Letters to Windsor House and Cardboard Citizens' Home Truths comes Matt Hartley's Deposit, a four-handed comedy drama about Generation Rent.'

'Lisa Spirling's slick production delights in passive-aggressive confrontation and boasts four detailed, naturalistic performances, particularly from Karl Davies as straight-laced shy Tory Sam and Ben Addis as professionally frustrated civil servant Ben.'

'It's remarkable how much Hartley has packed into a lightning-quick 90 minutes. His play is a test tube, delectably colliding the personal and the political, then chucking in glances at class privilege, a sprinkling of sitcom laughs and a hefty emotional clout, too. And money is always an issue on Polly Sullivan's open-plan set; the floor is a mosaic of pennies and the walls are lined with jars of change.'

' A modest, state-of-the-nation mini-masterpiece.'
