It takes a little while to become orientated with what is going on in front of you but as the story unfolds and develops you become more comfortable with the minimal performance portrayed on stage.

The story flits between a student giving her thesis on anti-establishment artists Adler & Gibb, and an unfolding story of an actress going far beyond the call of duty in preparation to portray the aforementioned Alder in a Hollywood production.

Adler & Gibb highlights the current obsession of personality and life stories even if there is an overwhelmingly conflicting message within the artists own life’s work.

Although comedic, dark and entertaining, the abstract and sometimes surreal way in which it is presented, may leave audience members feeling out of the loop.
