Clouds, theSpace on The Mile, Edinburgh **
It’s 1913 and Winfred baxter is set on becoming the first Englishwoman to enter an air race. Consequently, she spends a lot of time hanging about an airfield engaging in unedifying conversations about the suffragette movement while characters stare off into the distance worrying about the gathering clouds (which is a metaphor, y’see). It has a curious mix of acting styles - from the terribly arch to flatly realist but Crow’s decision to keep most of the character development until the last 10 minutes cripples any semblance of pace.
