Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: The Dream Sequentialists, reviewed by The Scotsman’s Alison Kerr.

★★

A team of goblins, under the leadership of Foreman Snorewell, spends its time producing high-quality dreams for an elite clientele in this manic, muddled and rather confusing piece of theatre. And when one rebellious goblin creates the first nightmare, chaos ensues – and the team has to put an end to it.

It may be lively to the point of hyperactivity but this production is a bit of a yawn, short on laughs and rather difficult to follow. Lucy Mangan as the disgruntled goblin who mutters gobbledygook throughout, is terrific, though.

Zoo (Venue 124) until 30 August / listings
