Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: Real Life Becomes a Rumour, reviewed by The Scotsman’s Susan Mansfield.

★★

Three men gather in a flat for an uneasy reunion. As the evening drags on, through a farcical game of charades and repeated visits from the moustachioed German next door, we start to conclude that their business is far from legal, and that things are far from well.

Tom George’s play for young company White Box observes male interaction well and displays some sharp turns of phrase, but needs a clearer plot.
