“Spare was thought provoking, raw and yet very real.”
Sarah Kelly, National Association for People Abused in Childhood
“The high calibre of performance combined with excellent production values and a novel idea makes Spare a piece of outstanding theatre, and it is not to be missed and in fact I want to go back more than once.”
Fringe Review ****
“Innovative look at people’s actions... The acting is superb and without exception each performer makes their character for the night their own... A refreshingly different play”
“A brave and daring new approach to theatre, it's fortunate that Rex's skill as a director equals his ambition as a writer...
Spare treads over exciting territory. Subject and style are exactly matched”
“The writing has clarity and style without being patronising and the staging is bold and inventive without being superficial...
Sebastian Rex is an interesting and coherent writer of original theatrical pieces”
Paul Vale critic for The Stage

How to screw up a society in 40,320 ways...
A comedy about abuse, Spare is a raw, provocative and absurd look at power and control. The play is written in gender-neutral language and performed by a cast of eight who change roles every show.
