After the jump is a review of Spilling Beans.

Spilling Beans - Tarragon Theatre Mainspace - 30 Bridgman Ave.

Spilling Beans is essentially a series of dialogues in which the characters - four strangers in a neighbourhood cafe - talk to their inner voice, discussing their difficulties, sadnesses, frustrations and fears. We, the audience, get a chance to take a glimpse inside the heads of four random strangers and find out what is really on their minds. While the play is slightly rushed and the characters are a touch stereotyped, the acting is solid and the characters' accounts of their woes and troubles engage our interest, because they strike chords with our own life experiences. Being the very first production of a recently formed theatre company, Spilling Beans gives promise of interesting things to come.
