ED2012 Theatre Review: Angels in Heels (Last Night’s Eyeliner)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

In this enjoyable free show, recent graduates of Arts Educational Schools London and other performing arts schools give us a glimpse into the lives of four Mancunian girls studying for their A-levels. They face the usual challenges, including the distractions of boys and clubbing and the problem of financing their studies. The piece incorporates modern music and current events well, with a nod to both the controversial hike in tuition fees and to popular chart music However, the storyline can feel predictable at times and romantic scenes can’t avoid a hint of awkwardness. Nevertheless, Josh Ruhle as Mr Cooper and Darlene Charles as Tanya give strong performances and help to make this a very watchable piece of theatre.

Edinburgh City Football Club, 2-26 Aug (not 6, 13, 20), 2.15pm.
