Theatre review: Said and Done, Sweet Novotel, Edinburgh

There’s a fun mood, lively energy and imaginative use of movement in this good-natured little play about two women at a wedding party and their snarky commentary on the other guests.

Lily London and Alice Ritchie go for obvious laughs with their characters’ larger-than-life impersonations, but struggle to get away from the feel of a static TV sitcom. A story of lost love and sisterly rivalry is set up but underdeveloped in favour of a sketch-like approach that culminates with one of the characters moving to Wales. More focus is needed to underpin the interesting juxtaposition of heightened realism with observational comedy.
