In Khalil Ashanti’s most recent piece, Razor, presented by TheatreWire, he guides you through a significant and challenging time in his life where he’s torn between his craft of acting/entertainment and a world of practicality. As a one man show Ashanti presents a variety of distinct characters that help him determine his chosen path in life. Sometimes humorous, and sometimes dark but always very real, he reminds his audience that it’s not always those that should have your back that are the ones that you find the best support and advice from. I’m not convinced that he goes deep enough with some of the characters although his presentation is on point and entertaining throughout. I’d be interested to see if the piece evolves through future iterations in his upcoming fringe tour.
Razor is playing at Studio 1398 until 9 November 2018.
