3* REVIEW of 'One Elliot Park'

Marc Alexander Norris in 'Measure for Measure' 2000

June 2012

Irene Brown, 'EdinburghGuide.com' ***

The play see saws its way from certainty to confusion as Debs’ thoughts go on a loop, Douglas goes in to overdrive like an android with its wires crossed, Mark is simply manic and Chloe just quietly rocks centre stage. The madness is only just contained in the unusual and limited space that is a conference room in the Malmaison Hotel, so some clever direction from Andy Corelli. Tommie Hart showed real comic potential with his range of voices as he went from radge to regular polis with ease.

This is an unusual play that places a mirror to our mutual responsibility towards each other. It was played tightly by the five-strong cast, its atmosphere augmented by sounds of a tense menacing cello and apt songs like the Beatles’ You won’t see me, with its poignant line ‘ I wouldn't mind If I knew what I was missing’, and Elvis’ Suspicious Minds. Well worth the trip to Sunny Leith!
