"Hard-hitting prose makes powerful points"
by Leon Conrad for remotegoat on 10/05/10

'Gifted' is a new play by veteran author, playwright and academic Peter Billingham. It's a tale of madness masquerading as sanity, couched in language as brutal as it is beautiful.

During the play we trace the journey of a female student, Fran Webster, towards transgression. The path Fran takes on her journey is essentially laid out by her parents, Jane and Gerald Webster, played by Kitty Martin and Adrian Francis. When their tangled web of co-dependency finally snaps, something is released in both mother and daughter and the plot speeds towards a rousingly chilling denoument.

Fran's transgression is not conventional. The story unfolds like a detective novel, with the picture only being completed fully by the end of the play. Billingham, inarguably talented, is at once very subtle in his portrayal, while also wishing to seem obvious. His characters appear as transparent spokespeople who embody a particular view the playwright wishes to convey with regard to arms deals, bullying, domestic violence, and the value of life, along with the importance of social status in contemporary society.

The way the actors play the madness inherent in the play is compelling... the lyrical lines - hauntingly beautiful, or the extensive quotes from Shakespeare, which Billingham throws in with Ffordian glee... The action which takes place in a black box theatre in this production, with three wooden boxes on the set used as the main stage props is where the magic mainly happens. The structures evoke a variety of exterior and interior settings credibly and convincingly through the actors' professionalism in handling them. If you like either a good detective story or hard-hitting theatre, you're in for a treat - 'Gifted' provides a compelling mix of both.


At the centre of this play is a teenage girl called Fran. She’s intelligent and bound, everyone else expects, for Oxbridge entry. She is alienated from her father and what appear to be his values and, though she seems to have buddies, is she really a loner, caught up in the wonder of words?

With a mother dependent on anti-depressants and a father working for some kind of weapons company and strongly supporting the government going to war it is easy to see why a sensitive young idealist has relationship problems and her unease is increased when her best female friend declares a lesbian love for her.

There is no obvious motivation for her investing her caring and compassion in an aging Falklands War veteran, homeless and alcoholic, beyond the fact that he is vulnerable and there. Their strange relationship becomes the heart of this drama.

Matthew Ward is magnificent as the hard-drinking hobo, suspicious of the girl, scared what conclusions others would draw but building a bond with her and sharing his fears and his nightmares, haunted not by the surrendering Argies he shot but the spirits of lost comrades, until with her help and whisky he finds his quietus.

Is she an angel of charity or herself in need of psychiatric assistance? In scenes with her young black friends Chris (David Bonnick Jr.) and Mocha (Sapphire Joy) the dialogue seems entirely natural, at least as these young actors play it – and Joy is just that as a performer, one to look out for if she is always this good.

There is a fascinating core to this play… [it] gained an enthusiastic reception from its audience.

Review by Howard Loxton (2010), British Theatre Guide.




By Peter Billingham

This play is bleak. The daughter does not get on with her parents – her friends think her a bit weird – and secretly she meets up with a homeless, semi-deranged, God-fearing Falklands veteran. Yet from this world of bleakness, as good drama does, writer Peter Billingham has created a poetic tale of friendship and redemption.

Teenagers often do not see eye-to-eye with their parents but here you allow that Fran has reason. Her dad, Gerald, is a cold-hearted fish, treating his pill-swallowing wife abysmally. Hs is also an arms-dealer, one who sold weapons to a faction in Afghanistan that have now turned the guns on British troops (could the writer be alluding to our former dealings with the Taliban?).

Fran, though, is gifted. She is bound for Cambridge when she finishes school, something that differentiates her from Mocha, a reluctant learner at best, and Chris, a "typical" teenage boy who sees no value in education. Mocha and Chris go on a date together so Fran feels in need of a new friend. She goes for a walk in the woods, where she meets the tramp.

At this stage, apart from the fact that Fran has shown her parents a compromising video on her mobile (the story is not linear), the play seems to be following a conventional, fairy-tale pattern. Technologically up-to-date but conventional nonetheless. What gives it more are the numerous unexpected twists.

Individual scenes also greatly add. The teenagers bring an authentic tension-ridden dialogue, neither Mocha nor Chris saying what it is they want. Gerald ordering his wife to fetch him his shoes is something that will stay long in the memory.

The most powerful moments occur in Fran’s dealings with Norman, the homeless man. In a competent cast, actor Matthew Ward excels as the intense, mood-changing, neglected ex-soldier, who may or may not be telling the truth about his past experiences.

Credit must here be given to the sparse set, the use of boxes/cubes as minimalist props and the overall brisk pace. Director Chris Loveless you feel seems to know how to do bleak.

It took me time to recognize that this is a drama that skirts in and out of realism. At first I couldn’t accept that Gerald could be quite so bad. He is not only the stereotypical villain – arms dealer, ruthlessly ambitious, mean to his wife – but he also appears genuinely unaware that he is anything but a good husband and father. The daughter of an arms dealer fortuitously meeting up with a soldier/victim of a previous war also seemed to verge on the pat. These qualms disappear though as the ninety-minute drama progresses.

One scene I felt could have been pruned was that involving Fran getting Mocha to read lines from Romeo and Juliet. There is an irony to this later on but here I believed too much information was given early on for the irony to be effective.

The Shakespeare play closest to Gifted is King Lear. Norman has done wrong in the past by his involvement in war and now he must suffer. But here he does not carry the body of his Cordelia. That is the final twist. And the way to find out the final twist is to go along. Well worth a look.

SPOONFED Review of Gifted at White Bear Theatre

04 May, 2010
by: Naima Khan

Gifted by Peter Billingham sets out to explore the effects of our intensely technology-mediated world on interpersonal relationships by exploring isolation and family dynamics. It follows A grade student, eighteen year-old Fran, as she navigates intense friendships, her tenuous relationship with her parents and exam revision. She soon befriends an older homeless man, Norman. By talking to her about weighty issues, his past and the ways of the world, Norman is able to fill a void, providing her with the meaningful connection she craves. The play is interspersed with poetry and a strong, engaging element of spoken word. Billingham has effectively made a feature of his characters’ expressive natures through their idiosyncratic language, and contrast them with Fran’s communicatively stunted parents.

The play triumphs in unexpected areas... Adrian Francis and Kitty Martin provide a moving portrayal of the dynamic between an overbearing husband and a meek wife, and the cost paid by their child. Francis embodies a calmly-spoken villainous father figure, disconnected and intimidating. Martin's well-meaning mother figure is full of warmth but at times weaker than her own child. The family dynamic makes an important point about a perpetual generation-gap. It carries much more of the drama and is far more emotive than the relationship between Fran and Norman... Billingham clearly has an ear for language, and under Chris Loveless' direction, the script takes centre stage on a sparse set to great effect... the poetic language and pace take focus, thereby making the encounters between Fran and Norman engaging and impressive.
