The Reviewers

The Reviewers, Charlesworth and Holland Productions, Greenside @ Edinburgh Fringe Festival - reviewed on 19th August

It's the 1980s and Token University Theatre Group is performing at the Edinburgh Fringe. After a bad review, its lead actress decides to become a critic. 20 years later and her website gives top star ratings only to those who offer a bribe. So begins The Reviewers.

The production has many cleverly-constructed humorous moments, such as when a character excitedly exclaims that someone looked at his show's flyer before throwing it away. The basic idea behind The Reviewers is a good one and the cast is committed, but some aspects are a little rough around the edges.
