Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: FaÇade, reviewed by The Scotsman’s David Pollock.

★★

A young man called Alex has done something nasty, so an assorted collection of his friends and lecturers tell us in flashback, some of them testifying into a video camera which displays their face in big close-up on to a television screen. What happened in the past unfolds with a hint of the supernatural to his disturbed psychology, although in a manner which betrays the show’s willing-to-try drama society origins (in this case at the University of Manchester) with unclear pacing and hesitant performances.

The Space on the Mile (Venue 39) until 23 August
