Notes On A Lasagne

Notes On A Lasagne

Writer Jono Gadsby has Mini finding suicidal Chris at a cliff's edge late at night one Christmas Eve. Mini appoints himself Chris' good Samaritan declaring, "I'm going to save your life" and seemingly he will exploit all number of ploys to do so and then to sort out Chris' problems as well. What emerges is a meandering discussion largely concerned with the nature of relationships which reveals how both men find themselves in this unlikely Yuletide venue. Both Mini and Chris are economical with the truth and so the history which drives each of them to the cliff is woolly and rather unsatisfying. Various inconclusive confessions are made by Mini regarding his less than squeaky clean past, and apart from some hints about sinister proclivities Chris is unrelentingly the victim of his "evil bitch whore from hell wife". Mini may really be a "nutter" but Chris' stance is unlikely in his denial of any responsibility for his failed marriage and current predicament. Despite the too many digressions in the pair's discourse, Gadsby nonetheless succeeds in achieving passages that have a ring of truth about them and some moments of genuine unease.
