Theatre review: Isabelle, C South, Edinburgh

An incredibly brave performance from Irene Possetto is the sole focus in this presentation of her own original folk tale.

Isabelle, C south (Venue 58)

Isabelle, C South, Edinburgh * *

No performer should have to open to an audience of three in what can be an intimidatingly large venue but while Possetto may not be the most practiced performer, her talents as a storyteller are clearly evident in the script. An origin story for a folk monster, it’s like Baba Yaga Begins as young girl whose harrowing experiences in Berwick Upon Tweed during the Great Famine lead her to Germany where she confronts her own monstrousness.
