The Prodigals (Inspire)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

Thankfully this show was only an hour long; I would not have been able to bear it any longer. Two brothers are in the army, one drops out to pursue a career in an awful euro trance group and gets mixed up with drugs. The other stays and is angry about this and that. All the music and songs are terrible and the actor playing the father gives a spectacularly bad performances, closely followed by the rest of the cast. Despite there being an anti-drugs message and one of the characters dying of a heroin overdose, I couldn’t help thinking that a bit of smack would have made the whole viewing experience slightly more endurable.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 3 – 29 Aug (not 4), 5.00pm (6.00pm), £11.00 – £15.00, fpp290.
