Theatre review: The Domestic, theSpace @ Surgeons Hall, Edinburgh

Syracuse-based company Queen Doris have potential in spades – the performances are charismatic with a touch of anarchy and the live music is agreeably loud and rocking in a new wave style – but the busy narrative is broad rather than deep and ends rather abruptly after 45 minutes. With a bit of script development, however, they could have a cult in the making.
