As theatres have reopened I’ve changed, I’m seeing even less, but what I’m searching for remains constant: sensual delight, and an encounter with rigorous intelligence, the kind that’s like an oxygen pump to the brain. In The Untethered Joke, a work-in-progress at Camden People’s Theatre from Sue MacLaine and Hannah Ringham, I found both. Hannah swathed in red and orange tissue paper – portrait of a lady on fire – and Sue in a t-shirt belligerently asking if you want to make something of it, and both of them diving deep into fears that come with ageing, violence against women, anger and vulnerability, with grace and humour and poetry. Maddy Costa Dec 2021 Exeunt
