Theatre review: The Knight of the Box Near the Station
Edinburgh Festival Fringe Scotsman review: The Knight of the Box Near the Station at Laughing Horse @ Espionage (Venue 185), reviewed by Alison Kerr
There is something very appealing about Dan Cardwell’s rather muddled but intriguing Fisher King-like fairytale for grown-ups that shines through even though he is not the best person at putting it over in a compelling way – probably partly because he rushes his delivery and doesn’t distinguish enough between the different characters’ voices.
Oh, and he seems to lack confidence in his material, even asking the audience if they had seen Groundhog Day, because nobody laughed at his joke about “having the Bill Murrays”, ie, a sense of déjà vu.
MORE INFO: The Knight of the Box Near the Station at Laughing Horse @ Espionage (Venue 185), until 25 August
