Review: I Will Survive

If you've ever had a broken heart, a one night stand, or one vino too many then you'll be able to relate to the shenanigans of Insideout Productions’ new show 'I Will Survive'.  Join Alison, Leah and Lauren as they attempt to cheer up newly single Donna, after her dirtbag husband (nicknamed Dick) has left her.  Featuring songs from the last four decades, the show is a feelgood musical comedy which has everybody up on their feet.

The intimate atmosphere of the Tron Theatre’s Victorian Bar lends itself well to Act I, which takes the shape of a girly night in.  Revelations and wine aplenty we are introduced to each cast member who all portray relatable women with relatable issues.  Touching on man problems, drink problems and many more, no topic is barred and the show manages to be both hilarious and genuinely touching.  Tanked up on booze the girls head out to Big Boaby’s Bar in Act II and invite the audience to join them once more. 

With a mix of numbers from well known musicals and chart topping hits, each chosen track guides the audience through the story, although the vocals and songs chosen were so diverse and well performed it would have worked even without the plot. 

I Will Survive is a perfect excuse for a get together with the girls and to let you hair down. After a successful run at the Tron the show is now going on tour which you can catch on its first stop at Eastwood Park theatre, check out the details here.
