The Nature of Forgetting

August 27th, 2017 | by admin
Tom has early onset dementia. He’s only 55. This is the jumping off point for Theatre Re’s The Nature of Forgetting, an exploration of memory made real through mime, original music and some beautifully tender but oh so...

Adele Is Younger Than Us

August 29th, 2016 | by lidia
This show may not be Grammy award winning, but it is well worth a visit. You’re in your late twenties and you’ve never been in love, or written the fastest selling album of all time, you may as well be obsolete. What on Earth...

Carey Marx: Hero of the People

August 29th, 2016 | by lidia
Marx is an experienced performer, totally at ease on stage, but one that never breaks enough boundaries to propel his show forward. His more basic material builds skilfully but never quite escapes the simpler nature inherent in...

Paul Merton’s Impro Chums

August 29th, 2016 | by lidia
Paul Merton seems like he’s been around since the dawn of the Fringe. A veteran of the class of ’84, he might be forgiven for bringing the same cosy, yet deeply popular, improv show back each year. It’s very...

Max & Ivan: Our Story

August 29th, 2016 | by lidia
Tonight things got real for Max & Ivan, literally, as they tell us their story. Known for their agile transitions into an array of characters, the boys decide to turn the mirror onto themselves in their 2016 Fringe show Max...

Jayde Adams: 31

August 29th, 2016 | by lidia
With walls adorned with a clown costume, glittering leotards and those nineties classics, the popper ‘trackies’, it’s incredibly difficult to judge what kind of evening Jayde Adams: 31 is going to be. While billed as...

Bob

August 26th, 2016 | by lidia
It’s another one of those lost Shakespeare parody plays, and it’s one of the better ones. Bob is all the best of Shakespeare; dark, twisted and tragic plot-lines but made accessible, and better still – funny. The play is...

Teatro Delusio

August 26th, 2016 | by lidia
Famillie Floz, the Berlin-based company of masked actors, has made a triumphant return to Edinburgh after the success of last year’s Hotel Paradiso. In Teatro Delusio we go behind the scenes at a theatre to follow the antics of...

Nick Hall: Szgrabble!

August 26th, 2016 | by lidia
Szgrabble! is a Communist themed one-man Bond movie, with scrabble as a knowing and silly metaphor for cold war chess. It’s character comedy, with unfortunately wandering accents, that’s backed up by a humorous and...

John-Luke Roberts Builds a Monster

August 26th, 2016 | by lidia
The show begins with John-Luke Roberts sat above the stage, perched, as a humongous Dracula. If anything, it’s more Orson Welles crossed with a Northern Dad. The show has a silly monster in the cupboard vibe, in the style...
