There is plenty of audience interaction in ‘Teleport’ with the audience being roped in as fellow players in David’s game. Together everyone must complete quests and fight monsters, with the emphasis on making everyone a hero (i.e. no one will be getting picked on here). The show has had fabulous reviews (“An outstanding, theatrical piece of one-man comedy” – Chortle) with critics and audiences enchanted by this carefully crafted piece – with elements of improvisation – which gradually reveals that David’s emersion in the game is being used to avoid a fraught and difficult reality. Another winning presentation from CaroleW Productions, expect much silliness, huge laughs and joyous moments of spontaneity – as well as a show with an emotional undertow.
