Audience meets 10 minutes before the show starts at the Victoria Bar, 265 Leith Walk.
Thursday 15-Saturday 24 August (no performance on Sunday 18)
Many shows at the festival are trying to create an interactive, immersive experience, (you can search edfringe.com on interactive shows). This is definitely the best I’ve seen so far. Actress Emma Anderson is fantastic giving a no holds barred passionate performance of a woman at the hinges of losing it, waiting in the garden for her lover. Audiences are taken from Victoria Bar to a secret garden in Leith and given headphones, as the sound for this performance is kept separate from the live performance, creating a detached and innovative experience. Sound designer Tam Treanor uses original recordings to confuse and delight and the lighting creates an eerie atmosphere which accompanies the gothic theatre piece beautifully.
It’s selling out fast and not much more time left, so if you get a chance this is definitely worth the bargain price of £12 to experience something which suggests the Vision Mechanics production company are going to produce some excellent work in years to come. FOUR STARS
