Coppers Uncovered – The Walk Of Shame

By | Published on Sunday 31 August 2014

From awkward conversations at the bar to awkward conversations on the dance-floor, Coppers Uncovered chronicle the ups and downs of a group of Irish lads who are on a night out and who want to have sex. Four men and three women play a range of nightclub-goers, changing wigs between each scene, and the action is accompanied by a bad David Attenborough impression, commenting on their adventures. The scenes are extremely short, and there are pauses between them which gives the production a stop-start feel, while most of the actors speak too quietly to hear and there is no attempt to comment on the puerile, backward attitudes of the men who want to get laid. Like a bad night out, it drags on interminably.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 24 Aug.
