Fossils Ed2016

With simplistic set and straightforward narrative, ‘Fossils’ tells the story of a young PhD scientist on the search for her missing father. Its strength lies with the cast, three extremely strong naturalistic actors who multi-role, play violin, and produce all the live electronic sounds. The play is for the most part set in a laboratory, and an especially well thought out use of technology adds to the performance, as wires and electronic sound devices enhance the atmosphere. However, on the whole the story unfortunately and surprisingly did not emotionally affect me, nor interest me. I actually left feeling slightly disappointed. ‘Fossils’ is enjoyable, but not memorable.

Pleasance Dome, until 29 Aug.
