Cinema (Northern Stage at Summerhall, Monday 9th August 2015) ***

Having learnt my lesson from previous years, I booked most of the shows each day in one venue. Today was the start of my Northern Stage at Summerhall day.

The first show was a monologue about a horrific fire which took place in August 1978 at the Cinema Rex in Abadan, Iran. The story is told by a cat who has used her nine lives up. The whole hour is very moving, and well performed. The issue, I had was that the cat concept just didn’t work for me. I didn’t ever believe that the cat could experience the human emotion to make the whole thing work. The cat’s back story just wasn’t interesting enough.
