It feels like mercurial playwright Torsten is meant to be a funny yet tragic figure in Katie Berglöf’s Stockholm-set family drama.

Star rating: *

Venue: theSpace @ Surgeons Hall (Venue 53)

But in actor William Irven’s hands he is simply a colossal irritation.

The rest of the production isn’t without merit – but given that Torsten’s in almost every scene, it’s hard to escape the sucking black hole of his charmlessness.

Until 27 August. Today 11:50am.
