THE­ATRE THE PEd­dlER’s TAlE the Zoo (Venue 124) HHHHH

The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

Ap­pAr­ently set dur­ing the Mid­dle Ages and con­tain­ing trick­ery, magic and emo­tional back-flip­ping, this pe­riod pro­duc­tion from In ex­tremis tells the tale of Deirdre, a young woman cov­eted by a trou­bled prince, a black­smith, her dis­turbed brother and a comi­cre­lief poet, among oth­ers.

Al­though the per­for­mances are steady and more than ca­pa­ble un­der, the story fiz­zles out long be­fore the end.
