    Pool (No Water) is a dazzling piece of theatre. In a year of excellent theatre in Melbourne it came up maybe top for me. And yet Red Stitch theatre saw it as their 'dangerous' piece, the one that might fail. In that case, thank heavens they were brave enough to put it on. This is one of my 'crawl over broken glass to see it' theatre experiences. Pool (No Water) is a dazzling piece of theatre. In a year of excellent theatre in Melbourne it came up maybe top for me.

    What a wild read about art and life. Very dark. Mark Ravenhill is quickly becoming one of my favorite playwrights!

    Pool (No Water): 2.5 stars - interesting concept, the plot is so unique and the character(s) while cruel in their action are realistic humans with clear flaws and desires. I imagine the theatrical experience with an inventive production from Frantic Assembly would be superb. However, the text is very open, with no assigned characters which in combination with being written in past-tense removed the sense of stakes or objectives (perhaps a production would remedy this?).

I really wanted to love this but on the page is it an average play that had potential but didn't blow me away. Although I would say it is worth reading if the plot intrigues you. I have not read Citizenship.
