If That’s All There Is (3 stars)

This article is from 2009.

Less a play than a series of sketches, this show created by Inspector Sands is about a couple of maladjusted professionals approaching their wedding day. Wittily staged, it has some good gags about the bureaucratic mindset, but it is ultimately a cynical piece of work that has no love for its characters nor, for that matter, an explanation for the dramatic event with which it begins.

Traverse Theatre, 228 1404, until 30 Aug, times vary, £14–£16 (£10–£11).

If That's All There Is

  • 3 stars

A mini-epic of longing, disappointment and psychobabble, or a thriller of heatwaves and heartache. The makers of award-winning 'Hysteria' - 'I laughed until I cried' (Guardian) - question our obsession with fulfillment.
