Theatre review: Sex Drugs and Toilet Rolls
Edinburgh Fringe Scotsman review: Sex Drugs and Toilet Rolls at theSpace on North Bridge (Venue 36), reviewed by Matt Trueman
Hull University’s drama society Z floods the Fringe each year, but this hoary house-party narrative is a thumbs-downer.
Set in a bathroom, while a house party trips out of control, it’s Skins without structure or style. It’s seasoned with MDMA, but there’s a nagging sense of guidance teacher-style responsibility: “Dabble with drugs, kids, but don’t make a habit of it.” There is an interesting note of parental absence that’s left unexplored, but otherwise this is basically students pretending to be high with varying degrees of accuracy.
