ED2019 5/5 Reviews ED2019 Theatre Reviews

Post-Mortem (Ellandar Productions and Jessica Rose McVay Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2019

The tale of two people who fell in love as teenagers, meeting ten years after their relationship fell apart, is told through a brilliant script and captivating physical theatre. In the intimate space you feel a part of Nancy and Alex’s story and the excellent performances by both actors make their complex relationship totally believable. Bursts of expressive dance effectively portray the intense emotions of the characters and work well with the snippets of script, which jump back and forth in time to piece together their story. I didn’t leave with my mind blown, but with a smile on my face, feeling joyful: for a sweet, funny and moving tale like this, I think that’s the point.

Assembly George Square Studios, until 26 Aug.
