The Inventor And The Escort (Ines Wurth Presents)

By | Published on Thursday 8 August 2013

Julia, a professional escort, responds to a call by Jeffrey, the inventor of popular sexual devices, a shy rich man in need of companionship. Deciding to re-enact a beach scene from Jeffrey’s past, they soon find themselves unintentionally unwrapping each other’s true selves – and this will change everything. Take ‘Pretty Woman’, put it in a slightly different context, and there you have it. Unfortunately, this turns out to be no more than an amateurish echo of the famous story, although both actors clearly show potential. Furthermore, the script, even if containing interesting exchanges at times, overall does not help the performance.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 25 Aug, 12.00pm.
