The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

JAMES Link is liv­ing a life of drink, drugs and women. His only friends in this lonely ex­is­tence are Dr Fiddes and his part-time lover Susie. When their love lives in­ter­twine, they all pay the price.

Adapted from James Ken­n­away’s 1960s novel, this stage ver­sion lacks some­thing – pos­si­bly a fully de­vel­oped re­la­tion­ship be­tween ac­tor and au­di­ence, as at no point dur­ing Link’s jour­ney will you want to care about the life of this des­per­ate, wom­an­is­ing drunk. Robert Shaw’s smart and snappy pro­duc­tion has a fast-paced struc­ture, yet the empty feel­ing at the end over­shad­ows this.
