Company Of Wolves (Big Shoes Theatre Company)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Cleverly adapting the words of Angela Carter to create a dark and dreamlike scene, ‘Company of Wolves’ is effective and well constructed. Professionally executed moments of dance, physical theatre and original acoustic music pepper the moments of text and the seamlessly interwoven stories leave audiences entranced. The cohesion of the company was admirable and the harmonies in song were beautiful. Although performing among a talented young cast, particular mention should go to Amy Kennedy. Her portrayal of the werewolf was outstanding and showcased her clearly innumerable talents with physical transformation and characterisation. Some of the best youth theatre the Fringe has to offer, ‘Company of Wolves’ is definitely worth catching.

theSpace @ North Bridge, until 10 Aug (not 7, 9), 2.05pm.
