Theatre review: Elegy for an Echo

Edinburgh Festival Fringe: In this portentously named play from the excellently named Gin and Chronic Theatre Company, a widower gets too deeply involved with the pharmaceutical company whose drug keeps his memories of his wife alive.

theSpace @ Jury’s Inn (Venue 260)


It’s a neat idea for a story, concocted from equal parts Limitless and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but writer Chris Townsend’s occasionally clunky dialogue and frequently flat characterisation don’t do it justice.

Until 26 August. Today 8:10pm.
