Ministry of Progress - Kimberley Hughes

Adapted from the play by Charlie Morrow, this promising musical was unfortunately disjointed. There is something wonderfully ironic that a Kafka inspired show about a man trying to correct a minor clerical error and get his proper ID card could be so wroth with problems. Having the music composed by double-digit personnel was a mistake for starters. Additionally, having a theme that an individual is more than a piece of paper is troublesome when the hero struggles to be given his identity card by an insane bureaucracy. The symbol for this musical was a single arrow. Such a singularity of purpose should have been followed in the make of this show.
