Have your say

Despite the clunky title, this show is a pretty straight (and gay and bi and trans) exploration of sexual identity and gender fluidity and its impact on a couple of relationships.

Star rating: **

Venue: Greenside @ Infirmary Street (Venue 236)

When Ben comes out as a woman, her partner Connor has to make his own transition. Love and trust are tested elsewhere when a lesbian couple want different things out of their sex life. An art student wonders why he isn’t attracted to anyone. But the sexual conversations which arise from these believable scenarios are a little coy and buttoned up; worse, the writing and direction are banal.

Until 20 August. Today 3pm.
