Sponsored by employer, our group trudged to Peacock-theatre to see UIT’s Hei Me Tervataan (Let’s tar, referring to stillborn EU-resolution to ban tar as an unhealthy food particle), a mainly musical collection of scenes having to do with finnish politics, pop music, outsourcing to China and everything inbetween.
Decent, not great by any means. Best skit had our less-than-beloved speaker of the house belt out Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. And it’s never a bad idea to make fun at people from Turku (Åbu Nidal, indeed). But somehow the production seems rushed and uneven – some scenes drag on and on, and some (like the aforementioned Turku-fundamentalism one) could easily have been extended.
