Dead Letter Office

Featuring an unpredicted plot twist, which will have you puzzled and intrigued, this is an original and innovative creation from a group of graduates from Edinburgh Napier University’s new BA Acting and English program. ‘Dead Letter Office’ takes place in the middle of the night as a young man, James, is seeking to find a letter sent to him twenty years earlier by his deceased and unknown birth mother. Actor Blair Kincaid performs the character of James charismatically, and the script is beautifully woven to assist the audience in reaching catharsis. However there were some segments of the narrative that seemed superfluous and appeared to be explored only for the purposes of showcasing acting chops, instead of raising the narrative’s impact.
