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

★★

ThIs show’s blurb promises “everything we have come to expect from Australian culture: sharp, dry humour, and racism”. What a sales pitch.

Attic Erratic present a nice high concept – two enemies step on landmines next to each other and are frozen to the spot – and dress it up with occasional insight, humour and a couple of nicely-worked shocks. Yet the “grunts and Middle Eastern guys with weapons are all just the same really” theme and sub-Tarantino chatter don’t inspire.

C South (Venue 58) until 31 August / listings
