Bleak, middle-class baiting playwright Doug Lucie has a new play staged by Triple Jump Productions starring actor Daniel York. It will be the first new play by Lucie on the London scene in over ten years. At the piece's centre is art collector Paul Stone who serves as a reflection of the vicious and often shallow world of buyers and investors. Lucie's sharp humour often cuts right to the truth and when he's got characters like Charles Saatchi, Tracy Emin and more to inspire him, the outcome should be intriguing. The show runs alongside another Lucie play 'Doing the Business'

I saw 'Doing the Business' on its opening night - unfortunately due to last minute cast changes 'Blind' did not go on. However, if its anything like the first half of this double bill then its worth a watch. I found 'Doing the Business' to be charming, witty and funny - and the audience seemed to enjoy it. There were audible reactions to some of the more controversial or cutting remarks in the 45 minute piece. The actors, both excellent, portrayed their characters well and were complimented well by the classy set design. Judging by the programme the director is just starting out, but this piece makes him one to watch. Worth the money (I believe its around the 10 pound mark, although they let me in for free as it was only half a show)
