ED2012 Theatre Review: Visiting Time (Unfit Productions UK Ltd)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

“Oh god, it’s so bloody English! Here you are with a loaded gun and we’re talking about the weather!” Best friends, worst enemies, HIV positive. ‘Visiting Time’ portrays the struggles of two men with drastically different personalities who envy each other, and hash out their problems with the aid of a loaded gun. Touching on sensitive issues such as assisted suicide, murder, adultery and the third world, this play offers a realistic portrayal of the relationship of two friends who have some serious problems with each other. With yummy nurses, revelations about who gave who AIDS, and a mildly amusing running gag, it’s worth it just to find out what happened to the rabbit that went into the butchers.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 1-26 Aug, 2.30pm.
tw rating 3/5 | [Charlotte Mortimer-Talman]
