(Ab)solution, [email protected] Street, Edinburgh * *
Three brothers go to confession in a bid to absolve themselves of their sins – many of them hurting the same woman, Fiona (Hollie Wade).
Sex addiction, repressed homosexuality, drugs, gambling – all human life is here which gives the lads plenty of excuses to indulge in tremulous voices, shaky hands and LOTS AND LOTS OF SHOUTING.
It’s like Pedro Almodovar directing a bonkers episode of Coronation Street but none of the laughs are intentional. Wade does well to keep a straight face throughout, however, and at least it’s never dull.
Until 24 August
