Plastic (3 stars)

Mehrdad Seyf's exploration of gender identity descends quickly from a damp, fetid and warm ground-level cellar to cool, white vaults as the audience is encouraged to consider how the body we inhabit determines our sexuality. Like an underworld imagined by Cocteau, each expressionist scene battles the frustrating sightlines of a venue that might otherwise enthral with the surreal comedy of this talented Iranian team.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 24 Aug (not 12, 19), times vary, £9.50 (£8.50).
