Subsist (DBS Productions)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

We are sitting in complete darkness. This darkness seems to go on forever. Before the show has even begun, I am getting tingles down my arms. John-David Henshaw’s beautifully written script, telling the story of four survivors struggling to live in a world that ended two years ago, ensures that this sensation continues for the best part of an hour. With characters that balance each other out to the point of perfection, you will find yourself connecting and sympathising with them more than you ever thought possible. The quality acting combined with an intimate venue and stark stage and lighting help contribute to this complete immersion in the modern horror that is unlike anything I have seen before.

Sweet Grassmarket, 4 – 21 Aug, 7.00pm (8.00pm), £7.00 – £9.00, fpp301.
