ED2012 Theatre Review: Winfamy (Tressillian)

By | Published on Friday 24 August 2012

An abundance of questioning and dealings with vulnerability make up Winfamy, as a selection of classically challenging characters are theatrically pasted alongside each other and supposedly filmed, spewing their heart rending stories. Characters walk on and off producing monologues which vary from displays of tireless persistence to dishevelled heart-ache. Senses of longing and loneliness prevail as this multi-faceted piece works as one product; demanding a concentration and perseverance I ignorantly wasn’t convinced I’d part with at a free show. The cyclical narrative and wondrously delicate characters push at sensibilities which are admirably varied and challenging to confront. The passion in performance and complimentary power of resonance make this a true pleasure.

Laughing Horse @ Edinburgh City Football Club, 16-26 Aug (not 21), 7.15pm
