There are some comic moments in In Space and the cast generally keep the energy up. Something of an Am Dram feel about the show with a stretched plot, off key singing of songs that rarely really peak, overacting and lack of variety in the humour which feels staid by the time you’ve heard the nth version of the same joke. Watchable if you can get 2 for 1 but there are better things at Fringe to splash a tenner on.

Such an amazing show! Really upbeat with some great humour! The script and songs were well written, the canabolism song was my personal favourite! The show is a MUST SEE at the fringe! Well done to the cast and crew for a great performance!

In Space by Napier University Drama Society is fun, rough around the edges but full of good comedic moments and some nice singing.

The writing by Calum Rosie (who also stars in the show in one of the more enjoyable performances) is genuinely witty and has many instances of clever, borderline risqué humour.

Unfortunately several technical issues hinder the performance with a lot of mistimed lighting cues and stray sound effects. The backing tracks were generally far too quiet, verging on inaudible. The cast do an admirable job in keeping the energy up and the plot moving amidst the technical issues. Hopefully these tighten up over the course of the run.

On a final note, Emily Doran who plays the dim-witted sidekick Jenny also gives a performance worth mentioning with some great comic timing.
