I recently saw Groomed as part of the Brighton Festival and can honestly say it’s one of the most affective pieces of theatre I have ever seen. The show is beautiful in it’s simplicity; minimal set and props work entirely in this show’s favour. The script is exquistely written, giving perspective and insight. But the thing that really makes this show special is Patrick Sandford himself who gives a performance that is at times hilarious and at other times devastating. I laughed a bit, I cried a lot. I was educated, entertained and inspired. And somehow left the show feeling strangely uplifted. This is life affirming theatre. This show is an absolute must see and I hope it transfers to another theatre where more people will have the opportunity to see it. Also, definitely worth sticking around for Q&A at the end. Thank you, Patrick, for sharing your story with us.
