Made For Each Other (Atomic Force Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2013

Made For Each Other is a thoughtful piece. Looking at the relationship between two men, it examines whether gay marriage is any different from heterosexual marriage and also why this question even needs to be asked? Gerry is disillusioned by the idea that marriage should be arrived at gradually, while Vincent fears telling him the truth about his Alzheimer’s. John Fico gives a fine performance in the roles not only of Vincent and Gerry but also of Vincent’s mother and Gerry’s grandfather. The idea that we’re moving away from homophobia with each generation is challenged by the character of the grandfather, who comes to accept Gerry before his father does. A show to make you question your own views about marriage and relationships.

Sweet Grassmarket, until 25 Aug (not 20), 5.20pm.
