BECOME THE ONE is a wonderful slow-starting romance with effective dramedy moments for both men.
A wonderful romance that grows and grows.
Noah quickly captures fast lust from Tom, the famous AFL player.
Tom causes relationship challenges, as Tom wants to remain in the closet.
The familiar tropes, are expertly explored in the greatest detail.
Multi-purpose designed set, but a strange looking set. Fully used at every venue, whilst touring Australia, and the set created the necessary atmosphere.
Well cast, with believable and winning performances from both actors, and each backstory is fully explored.
Very entertaining play, but strongly disliked the structure created by the director, and the overbearing/ excessive/ annoying/ loud music that was used for the transitions between each scene. All of the energy and momentum gained during each scene, was immediately dissolved and evaporated with each commencement of the transition music.
EXPECT – Coarse language and adult content/themes/relationships, and recommended for ages 15+

After the play ended, “the writers room” of directors/ writers/ playwrights/ screenplaywrights began discussing the merits of the play. Instead of discussing the play, there was heated and detailed discussion of the director and the writer. The ultimate conclusion was “first draft, play needs work, needs a different director, replace the music.”
DISCLOSURE – Riverside Theatres kindly provided our two Sydney Arts Guide reviewers, with complimentary tickets.
