Novemberunderground (Burning Oak Theatre)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

A look into how the future might look, which focuses on the possibility of terrorist activity in Canada. ‘Novemberunderground’ is a dark, vastly imaginative piece of drama following the lives of a series of characters who, whilst the play progresses, we learn are all connected. At the heart of this are Tim and Clara, a couple who are on their first date after meeting online and we are unaware of the events that tie them together until the end of the play. From the sexual tension between the couple to the nonchalant attitude of the cleaner, actor Gerard McGrath, the acting is incredible but the mysterious and gloomy script leaves us still wondering what the act of Novemberunderground actually was.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug, 10.45pm.
