The Dark Truth Tour (The Real Mary King’s Close)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

I was not expecting a tour group to hire such talented performers; it’s just one of the ways in which this particular tour makes itself exceptional. It’s a deeply theatrical guide through the underground close which is just the right level of scary; well lit enough that you don’t feel as though you’re in a horror film, but chilling enough that you don’t want to be the last person to leave a room (or indeed the first to enter one, in case one of the actors startles you). Fun, educational and entertaining, this isn’t one that’s going to give you nightmares, and it has the added bonus of featuring some of the Fringe’s better actors.

The Real Mary King’s Close, until 24 Aug, 10.30pm.
