RE (3 stars)

This article is from 2009.

Frustrating piece about three people trapped with each other and the ghosts of their pasts. Confusion arises from a script trying to do too much in such a limited time frame, but the show is saved by beautiful staging and strong performances, which keep the audience tantalised.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 622 6552, until 31 Aug, 1pm, £7–£8 (£5.50–£6.50).

RE____ alternates between a TV quiz and the presenter's home. Strange voices are put in strangers' skins. A marriage suffocates; a soldier returns, apparently from the dead. Caged animals are fed. Written by an award-winning playwright and Channel 4 comedy-writer.
