Theatre review: The Gypsybird Speaks
Edinburgh Festival Fringe Scotsman review: The Gypsybird Speaks at C Chambers Street (Venue 34), reviewed by Susan Mansfield
Dance, puppetry, philosophy, fairytales, satire, allegory: this show doesn’t lack ideas; in fact, it is in danger of collapsing under the weight of them.
Four characters wait for the appearance of a mythical girl while bickering in pretentious prose. Plenty more happens in the play, occasionally intriguing, often puzzling.
Max Bell might be advised to cut their teeth on something a little simpler if they don’t want to lose their audience.
Until 26 August. Today 5:15pm
