ED2012 Theatre Review: Big Bite-Size Breakfast Show (White Room Theatre)
Croissants and strawberries kick off this early-morning delight. With White Room Theatre’s morning entertainment menu running on a rotation throughout the Festival, today we are treated to four short theatre pieces with a 1940s theme. There is a good mix of styles and storylines, from the brilliantly comedic performance of the first piece in which a modern day couple’s obsession with the 1940s is causing their marriage to suffer, to the captivating true story of Hedy Lamarr, Hollywood star and inventor. Eve Kagan, as Hedy, is the definite star of the show, enthralling the audience with her dramatic monologue. With songs, laughs and flashes of genuine talent, this is the perfect way to start your day.
Pleasance Dome, 1-26 Aug (not 14, 21), 10.30am
