YOUR HARLOW has always prided itself on the support of the arts. We also support our fellow independent newspapers. Putting both things together, we have travelled to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to work alongside The Edinburgh Reporter.
IT may sound like damning with faint praise but this is a performance that had bags of potential in it.
When Cynthia’s husband dies during her pregnancy, she’s expected to mourn. Instead, she’s jubilant. He can never hurt her again. But what if the baby turns out just like him?
The two young actors produced an excellent performance that gets to the heart of difficult subject and worked really well together.
They kept the audience engaged and enthralled in two stand out performances.
The non linear narrative kept everyone engaged and it was necessary with so many themes being explored.
This was one of the shows which you would like to see future performances of.
