Description

‘The line of the machine. The purple of the bruise. It appeals. It tempts.’ A group of bohemian artists. They have a friend who was plucked from obscurity and is now renowned, respected and rich. She has a pool in LA now – did you hear? It’s fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Until one booze-fuelled skinny-dip leads to a terrible accident. Mark Ravenhill’s dark, witty comedy explores how jealousy can tear apart relationships and cause old friends to do the unthinkable.

All Edinburgh Theatre (4/5 stars) 100 days ago

The Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group’s late evening show at the Royal Scots Club, for week one of the Fringe only, is a decidedly over-18s only production of Pool (no water). Gore Vidal put it succinctly, “Every time a friend succeeds, I die a little”. In Pool (no water) playwright Mark...
