Slash Theatre: The Room in the Elephant
  • Edinburgh Fringe

We like to think of it as a 'daring expos revealing the state of contemporary masculinity in a post-feminist milieu. Total Theatre seem to think it's Comedy gold... full of surprises with an ending that's a total hoot. Two young men struggling to come up with ideas for a show, decide it will be an exact re-enactment of their current conversation. An older man arrives and states this sounds like awful, self-referential bullshit. Many mind-boggling shifts in understanding ensue, about where and when the show is set, and who these men really are.
