Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: The Lost Art of Lost Art, reviewed by The Scotsman’s Susan Mansfield.

★★

Molly and Lee have managed to get Munch’s The Scream on to the wall of their safe-house, though it’s hard to see why, as they are not the most competent of art thieves. In the course of this play, they argue tediously with each other, and with Norman, their security guard accomplice, about what to do next.

There’s a promising idea in there somewhere, but as it stands, this is a comedy which fails to be funny and a heist drama that goes nowhere.

Underbelly (Venue 61) until 30 August / listings
