Mimes in Time Ed2016

Dream Gun have created a light-hearted, humorous production, with great comedic timing and physical presence. In this fictional reality, mimes are the keepers of time, who unsuccessfully attempt to create the perfect historical time line. As with most time travelling stories, things get catastrophically out of hand, but the satire grows strong and this Irish company maintains a clear story. It’s a slick performance, and the actors own the stage with great presence and storytelling skills, but the narrative is pretty simple and only fleetingly captivating. And if you’re looking for an actual mime performance, you’re in the wrong place, as that’s not what this show is about. Overall, you can expect a comedic, funny and slightly nonsense hour of fun!

Underbelly Cowgate, until 28 Aug.
