Theatre review: Yellow Pears
Edinburgh Fringe Festival Scotsman review: Yellow Pears at Zoo (Venue 124), reviewed by Sally Stott
The homogeneous one-size-fits-all corporate world is closing in and a market stall faces being closed down. That is, unless manager Raz and her assistant Itzy can stop it. The pair’s outfits are as thrown together as the stuff they’re selling, but they are a likeable duo, played with heart by performers and devisors Rose McPhilemy and India Crawford.
Less successful is the story, which, cut with physical theatre and dance, uses surreal imagery without making it apparent why. As a critique of modern consumerism it has things to say but the esoteric style doesn’t make them any less obvious.
Until 26 August. Today 3pm
