Theatre review: The Uncanny Valley
Edinburgh Fringe Scotsman review: The Uncanny Valley at Underbelly Bristo Square (Venue 300), reviewed by Matt Trueman
There is no doubt that Superbolt Theatre are terrific performers, but they desperately need a director. The Uncanny Valley is winningly delivered, but in the end it’s content that counts.
Three time-travelling robots play out their primitive myth for us: a history lesson about the future. Meteorologist Wilson is the only weatherman to call storms when everyone else claims sun, sun, sun, but back at home he has fallen in love with an android. There is an interesting tension between the need for the real and the comfort of artifice, but Superbolt let it slip through their fingers for the sake of a few half-funny, over-bloated tangents.
