ED2013 Theatre Review: Missing (Engineer)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

Dealing delicately with such a chilling subject matter, Engineer has created a highly effective production. Taking an eclectic look at various circumstances in which people go missing, the whole piece resonates the feeling of emotional limbo that comes with the disappearance of a loved one. The staging and physical aspects of the play can sometimes feel a little unnecessary and pretentious and I am not sure the piece would have suffered much without them. Nevertheless, special attention must be given to the excellent narrative style and staging of the Moira Anderson scenes in the play, and the cast all deliver sincere and sensitive performances. It is difficult to leave this play without large amounts of empathy for each of the stories told.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug, 8.05pm.
