ED2012 Theatre Review: Carnival Of Crows (Little Friday Theatre)

By | Published on Friday 10 August 2012

Claustrophobic, stony and tucked away behind a thick red curtain, you couldn’t find a more appropriate venue for this show than the Gothic Room at The Free Sisters. A tale of marred innocence and twisted psyches, this new script is filled with the freshness of Roald Dahl’s ‘Rotten Rhymes’ and the nauseating monstrosity of ‘Sweeney Todd’. Although the stories seemed a little disconnected at times, Molly Beth White displays an obvious gift for physical theatre and confident, but not overbearing, audience interaction. Definitely not for the easily queasy (the bolognese I had planned for dinner didn’t seem so appetising by the show’s conclusion), but if gothic grisliness is right up your street then make your way to the carnival…if you dare.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, 3-24 Aug (not 4, 11, 18), 1.30pm.
