On The Island Of Aars **

A farcical musical play about a woman who lives alone on an island off the West of Scotland with only two crazy Evangelical ministers for company, until a Dutch health and safety inspector comes along to stir things up.

The show sounded promising and was funny in parts, but too high a percentage of the jokes didn't work.

The ending does make you smile and there is a great enthusiasm from the cast who revel in being silly. The girl who played "Morag" had an excellent voice, but the too many of the jokes were just childish in an unfunny way.

2.10pm at the Pleasance Above if you fancy a bit of silliness.
