Stripped (4 stars)

This article is from 2010


Insightful, not salacious

Hannah Chalmers proves herself a versatile performer in this one-woman show, dropping comfortably into an array of archetypes: the naïve first time stripper, the lecherous club manager, the nervous, kind-hearted client. Chalmers seems to acknowledge that audiences don’t shock easily; her exploration of her former profession’s institutionalised exploitation of performers and clients is insightful, not salacious.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 622 6552, until 30 Aug, 4.15pm, £10 (£8).
