THE­ATRE QuAL­iTy con­TRoL un­der­belly (Venue 61) HHHHH

The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

THERE is a play about two glas­gow men with part­ners, hav­ing af­fairs on the side – one with an­other woman, the other with a man. There is the crayon fac­tory where the two abused lovers work; and there are the dreams and night­mares that ac­com­pany the two doomed re­la­tion­ships, af­fect­ingly played out on a set that takes a few pieces of do­mes­tic plumb­ing – a bath, two wash­basins – and ma­roons them in space. Then there is the play Qual­ity

Con­trol, a shouty, aim­less satire which in­volves a man dressed as a gi­ant crayon, giv­ing what is pos­si­bly the worst per­for­mance on the Fringe. If promis­ing young glas­gow group proudEx­po­sure had stuck to the first play, they would have had a good three-star show on their hands. But as it is – well, no.
