Tether (Lost Sock Company)

By | Published on Monday 10 August 2015


‘Tether’ starts as a drama about two people running, and quickly evolves into the power struggle of a top athlete who gives up his time to guide an antagonistic blind runner. The relationship between the two characters is capably developed, but the play’s subtext of ambition and interdependence is more interesting to analyze than to watch. Most disappointingly, I left the theatre exactly the same person as when I entered. I was never bored, but never truly excited either: the plot trundled on, the dialogue was very fine and the acting was nice. It’s a fun piece of new writing and a comfortable way to spend an hour, just don’t expect too much more.

Underbelly, Cowgate, until 30 Aug.
