Absolutely stunning show. Amazing performance by the actor. Small venue added to the intensity of the performance. The subject is very serious but the show contains lighter and more humorous moments. I was completely knocked out by this show. Don’t miss it. Only four more showings

Thought provoking show in a very intimate and unique setting, was a great watch and the ending was very surprising!

Marrow combines fantastic, very thought-provoking writing and a brilliantly fast-paced performance with a physicality that perfectly reflects the essence of what defines us as who we are. I also really enjoyed the production’s superb sound and lighting design, and thought that this was an outstanding piece of theatre.

The term tour-de-force gets bandied about at festival time, but this really is that kind of performance. It’s an hour after seeing Craig in this incredible piece and I’m still deeply moved.
As an older gay man, it gave me the fear because it reminds me that there are still many out there who seek to do us harm.
Craig skilfully embodies all the participants in the life of Trevor, the victim of a homophobic attack, as he tries to recover and remember. It’s an astonishing piece of writing performed with such love. 5* from me.

Intense, strong, and excellence acting. This young man tells the journey by playing 5 different characters about being attacked in a hate crime and his journey of healing by him and those that helped him. I was amazed he listed over 200 famous people over history who were LGBQ in one or two breaths!!

TL;DR - Devestatingly beautiful, deeply impactful and a reminder to hold on tightly to the present, 'Marrow' is without doubt within the top 1% of theatre you might ever be able to have the honour of witnessing.

Great performance from the actor (who also looks like Paul Rudd) and incredible sound design and lighting show.
It's fast paced and multi-layered, while giving you room to think about the themes in the show.
Would recommend!

MacArthur’s handsome stage presence should be enough to engage any Fringe audience, but it’s the script, the production and his performance that makes it quality theatre.

Craig MacArthur is the indefatigable powerhouse at the heart of Brian Quirk’s script, holding the audience rapt as he switches between characters, moods and situations with a quicksilver dexterity.

Culture Fix (4/5 stars) 51 days ago

Marrow is a visceral, striking and often compelling piece of theatre that soars through Macarthur’s vibrant performance rich in emotional and physical depth. You should move this gem of the festival to the top of your Edinburgh Fringe priorities.
