REVIEW: La Bête is a sublime few hours of rhymes and ridiculousness 

Talk Is Free Theatre never fails to nudge the boundaries of theatre, injecting a refined sense of playfulness into the work it produces. La Bête is yet another success for the company, bringing phenomenal talent to a frequently bizarre play that could fall apart or become repetitive in the wrong hands. Two-and-a-half hours of rhyming couplets never felt so cool.
