The Americans (2 stars)

This article is from 2008.

A typical US family gather up to see how they are going to deal with the threats looming over their way of life. Dad Sam, mom Libby (Liberty: geddit?) and gobby daughter Mary (sounds a bit like America, apparently) tackle the issues with sketches broken up by vox pops of people describing America in five, usually damning words. A ham-fisted and blatantly obvious satire of Bush's US without enough of the humour that might have carried it home.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 668 1633, until 25 Aug, 3pm, £9–£10 (£8–£9).
