Review: Appointment With The Wicker Man, Assembly Rooms, George Street
Written by Greg Hemphill and Donald McLeary, the show is a comic, dark and farcical delight.
The Loch Parry Players are a day away from opening night and the leading man has disappeared under suspicious circumstances. All is not lost as “TV cop” Rory is hired under false pretences. Falling set, unique costuming and a Wicker Man made of steel confirm all is not as it seems.
With strong performances from all involved, including co-writer Hemphill as the unstable lynchpin, Sally Reid as the innocent but fiery red-head Marie and Paul Reilly as “Methadone actor” Fran, this is a gem.
Until Sunday 26
