To The End Of The World -- C Chambers Street, Edinburgh
17/8/07 GS

On my way into this show I was greeted by a host of beeming faces, telling me how beautiful I was and how happy they were to have me there. Which, frankly, is how every show should start. And the cast’s enthusiasm didn’t end there. A genuinely lovely tale about a boy’s adventures to the end of the world, this cleverly explored the lengths that the desire for love and money can take us to. Beautifully, colourfully staged with expertly utilised props and costumes, this could be one of the sweetest things you see this year, unless you find the basket of fluffy kittens I’ve hidden under the Scott Monument. A must for anyone who likes almost-happy endings.
