Review | Laura Money
Scotland! Three tits in tartan mucking about on stage for about an hour. Whatever you are expecting out of this show – you won’t even come close with the reality! Sam, Oliver and Jon are The Latebloomers – a physical theatre company based out of the UK. You could be forgiven for thinking they hadn’t really started when they had; it’s that kind of show.
Hilarious and clever, this trio take clowning to a new level. They create entire worlds (highlands, lochs, thistle fields, mountains) using only sound effects and mime. Clad in varying degrees of Scottish attire – yes there is a kilt – the three lads go fishing, mountain climbing, hunting, fighting and everything associated with the bonny land.
This is not a show for those who shy away from a bit of audience interaction. There will be singing, there will be whiskey and there will be FREEDOM! Scotland! is the ultimate ‘puss taek’ and homage to a very distinct land with very unique culture. Sam’s Scotsman on a night out is the funniest thing ever – he asks ‘you aright?’ and then flashes his eyes! Calling out the great Scottish saying ‘hold me back, boys’ followed swiftly by ‘I’m alright!’
If actually going overseas is too expensive, why not head to Yagan Square to Scotland! instead?
