Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: Rebounding Hail, reviewed by The Scotsman’s Andrea Mullaney.

★★

What if all the stories you read came to life, with their characters appearing in your room? Yeah, but what if none of these stories actually came to anything, because they were all unfinished tales by famous authors like Charlotte Brontë, Karl Marx and Raymond Chandler?

That would be quite frustrating – like this show, where an energetic young cast and an interesting concept are outweighed by the confusing extracts and a central twist that’s all too easy to guess.

Underbelly Cowgate (venue 61) until 30 August / listings
