THE­ATRE AnAToMy AcT C soCo (Venue 348) HHHHH

The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

I’M fre­quently amazed by the aw­ful things au­di­ences laugh at when they think they should. Here they ini­tially find rape, Parkin­son’s dis­ease, ston­ing and the phrase “I want to bruise a woman’s tits” hi­lar­i­ous, be­fore giv­ing up pre­tend­ing to un­der­stand this pseu­doin­tel­lec­tual, but mostly pretty du­bi­ous, new play writ­ten and per­formed by Freddy Sy­born.

Some­how Sy­born has man­aged to per­suade three de­cent ac­tresses to join him in his in­dul­gent the­atri­cal vi­sion, which of­fers a fast-paced yet largely un­wel­come in­sight into a mul­ti­tude of hor­ren­dous prej­u­dices – which I can only hope he doesn’t also sub­scribe to in real life.
