Three Weeks: Definitely Not Everyman (31/08/11)

Find the original article here.

‘Definitely-Not-Everyman’ is also definitely-not-what-is-expected. Moving from an absurdist office comedy to the tale of a man – Mr Everyman – who must, after a meeting with Death (for a reason not completely explained), try and repent for his sins before dying. This is a shame because some elements – such as the surrealist comedy aspect of each office worker robotically entering at exactly the same time – work extremely well, whereas the attached plot about Everyman trying to top himself doesn’t. Gags drawn from current pop culture, including ones about Amy Winehouse, are also poor – not because they are sensitive matters, but because they are done with little tact, wit or intelligence. Definitely-not-to-everyman’s liking.

theSpace On Niddry St, 8 – 18 Aug (not 14), times vary, £3.00 – £5.00, fpp255.
