Milk Ed2016

Traverse Company return to the Fringe with their new production, ‘Milk’. It’s the story of three Scottish couples, from three different generations, all living in the same place. With beautiful sets, brilliant sound and inspired choreography it’s a real shame that the story falls short, in this predictable tale where tired characters never quite feel believable. Perhaps the story tries to do too much in the space of an hour and twenty-five minutes, but all three resolutions end up feeling rushed and a little sloppy. The performances are strong, especially from the younger actors, and thanks to their excellent comic timing there are a lot of laughs. It’s just unfortunate that they’re at the expense of the story.

Traverse Theatre, until 28 Aug.
