Bytesize Theatre

★★★☆☆ Welcome

The lack of time to plan for live theatre at this year’s Fringe has not deterred the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group. Bytesize Theatre is a collection of three new plays presented on the online Fringe Player. The three pieces are not all equally impressive, but each has intriguing elements.

Beachy Head

Intense but bitty, the Grads production of Beachy Head – at Assembly Roxy to Saturday – gets right to the heart of Dan Rebellato and Analogue Theatre’s filmic script.

Titus Andronicus

Titus Andronicus

✭✭✭✩✩ There will be blood:
Bloody, nasty and noisy, the Grads’s production of Titus Andronicus at the Assembly Roxy has all of the ingredients of a memorable shocker but it is let down by some confused moments and a surprising politeness.
