ED2012 Theatre Review: Love Letters To The Public Transport System (National Theatre Of Scotland / Molly Taylor / The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Tuesday 14 August 2012

Synchronicity. It’s an important concept in this captivating one-woman show, celebrating the way in which life can be simultaneously mundane and awe-inspiring. The narrative charts Molly Taylor’s attempt to locate and thank the bus and train drivers who were responsible for delivering her to a particular place and time, but it encompasses much, much more. It meanders, like a number 86 bus, through the ways in which our lives can be affected so drastically by the actions of strangers. We rarely thank bus drivers, let alone get to know them, but by the end of this moving, funny tale you’ll want to. I only wish we could have thanked the writer/performer, the way she thanks bus drivers. So: thanks, Molly!

The Assembly Rooms, 4-26 Aug (not 6, 13, 20), 6.15pm.
