Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: #Realiti, reviewed by The Scotsman’s David Pollock

★★

Nailing the myth that reality television parodies have been almost eradicated from the Fringe, Italian company Big Tree brings a dystopian take on the genre which features people with issues like gambling addiction and an inability to stay away from an abusive partner forcibly locked in a house under the gaze of cameras and made to compete.

In places it strikes a chord, but the performances are patchy, the supertitles hard to see and the finale crudely melodramatic.
