The reviewers reviewed: Vanishing Point’s Saturday Night

‘This follow-up [to Interiors] offers a wordless peek into lit rooms, with intertwining narratives but this piece doesn’t deliver the emotional impact of its predecessor… where Interiors, in its quieter moments, offered a lucid, and deeply moving, insight into the loneliness of human interaction, this piece lacks direction and feels overly preoccupied with inconsequential matters …’ The List

‘Lenton and his team have constructed an exquisitely realised mediation on life and death. At its most comically absurd, the juxtaposition of sound and image recalls episodes of Pink Panther.’ The Herald

‘Looking stunning on Kai Fischer’s set and performed with tremendous precision by the six-strong cast, it adds up to a production that is as captivating as it is unusual.’ Northings

See it at Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, Sat 29 & Sun 30 Oct.
