Dance review: Rosemary
Edinburgh Festival Fringe Scotsman review: Rosemary at theSpace on Niddry Street (Venue 9), reviewed by Kelly Apter
A genuine attempt has been made by Seckford Theatre to build an ensemble that lives and breathes as one, and find alternative ways to deliver text.
To that end, these sixth-form pupils work hard at delivering verbatim accounts, building up an increasingly sad description of the childhood, marriage and trial of convicted serial killer, Rosemary West.
But a subject this serious, covering childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence and media corruption, demands a gravitas which is understandably beyond this young company. Hats off, however, for giving this troubled woman a voice.
Until 17 August. Today 1:25pm
