Made Up Ed2016

Do I have something in my teeth? What underwear am I wearing again? ‘Made Up’ gives a hysterically unglamorous account of your average club night. It’s an energetic, youthful piece that tackles the common issues of nightlife – heartbreak, seduction, drugs – as we follow four girls attempting to make the most of their evening. What follows is spot-on in its portrayal of teenage anxieties, such as Kate’s ‘FOMO’ (Fear of Missing Out), or the emotions of the heartbroken Ashley, who claims she loves being single. ‘Made Up’ is fun, insightful, unpretentious and completely relatable, whether you still hit the dance-floor every weekend or if wild, endless nights of partying are now but a hazy memory.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 28 Aug.
