Junior review by Cora Dibdin

At a Stretch is a comedy physical theatre show, with two people dancing, doing gymnastics and jumping on poles.

The play was about two women who lived their own everyday lives until they met each other. They were very different in lots of ways – one was sporty and the other was clumsy and funny. One had a really active day and the other worked in an office and got very bored every day.

When they met each other, one of them started following the other around everywhere she went and trying not to be noticed by pretending to be poles.

It was really good; I enjoyed it a lot. The music was funny and I liked it when they did the dancing with the shirts. The story was quite complicated but it was easy to understand even though there is no speech, and it was just told by miming, dancing and jumping.

I would recommend it to everyone.
