Cameron Mowat & James Watson in the rehearsed reading of  'King Arthur' 2008 by Lucy Nordberg

... smart shoestring production by professional group Siege Perilous, designed to showcase a new play by young Edinburgh writer Lindsay Miller.

Over a fierce 70 minutes, Miller's intensely theatrical script gradually rises to a fever pitch of shrieking paranoia and competing voices, in which it begins to emerge that Chloe is perhaps the only resident of the house, and the others are just three terrifying faces of her multiple personality disorder.

Millers' play is more disturbing than thrilling, and often painfullly accurate in reflecting the torment of extreme mental breakdown. This vivid and fast-moving play creates opportunities for some fine performances from its cast of five, led by Lily Carrie as Chloe, and Andy Corelli's production is full of style and pace, offering an intriguing prologue to a weekend night out, down at Leith Shore.
