Dirty Decadence

Dirty Decadence, Theatre with Teeth, C nova @ Edinburgh Fringe Festival - reviewed on 21st August
  
Three couples, a barmaid and lots of whiskey – what could possibly go wrong? A lot, it would seem. Dirty Decadence features an illicit affair, a gay love story, several angry girlfriends and even a murder.

Taking inspiration from Laura Wade's play, Posh, the piece's thumping music and scheming characters demand attention. Theatre with Teeth's performers – a group of dancers studying at Exeter University – are enthusiastic but struggle at times with the choreography's technical demands. However, their commitment to their roles and the sordid narrative make Dirty Decadence an entertaining performance.
