The Space @ Niddry St
Every year a new theatre company will venture forth up to the Firth of Forth & present its debut show at the Fringe, Among them this year is Suffolk-based Seckford Theatre, whose players consist of talented 17 & 18-year-olds. A pleasant blend of physical theatre & solid acting, they tell the story of Rosemary West, wife of the infamous serial killer, Fred West.
From the onset I was intrigued how such a story would convert to the stage, but was indeed informed & perhaps entertained, although such subjects I feel are strange entertainment indeed. The play also sits on the fence as to the possible guilt of Rosemary west who to this day professes her innocence.
This clever piece of theatre was performed with a confidence that belied the cast’s younger years. THREE STARS
