Gregor Firth's fantastic one-liners as Burke's treacherous sidekick, Hare.
Joyce McMillan, 'The Scotsman ' ***
Over an hour of tense dialogue, Caroline Dunford's script covers some fascinating ground, in exploring the nature of evil, and Stuart Nicoll's confident production features three impressive performances, from Andrew Hainey as Burke, Gregor Firth as Hare, and Mark Kydd as the puzzled and complex Captain Rose.
