Festival Review: Love, Bombs & Apples ***

Ashling Findlay-Carroll reviews a production that's 'both amusing and politically charged'.

One actor plays three very different characters, who tell us their stories in three monologues in three different locations around the globe.

RADA graduate Asif Khan is engaging and clearly a skilled performer, changing physicality and vocal quality to portray the different characters expertly. By interacting directly with the audience and using the close proximity of the performance space to his advantage, he includes us as characters in the action, which draws us in.

The monologues would benefit from a little editing, and the transitions are too lengthy and, due to the staging, we feel detached in these moments from the flow of the piece.

Love, Bombs and Apples is both amusing and politically charged. It speaks of bigger issues from the perspective of three individuals and asks us to question our own perspectives and preconceptions as a result.

Summerhall, 13:30pm, until 27th August (not Mondays).
