The End Of The Line – Aireborne Theatre 3*** - One4Review

| On 14, Aug 2021

Leeds University’s Aireborne Theatre have brought this production to Edinburgh, recounting the story of a railway platform encounter of two lost souls, Tom and Marley. At first Tom’s Cornish friendliness is met with suspicion and disdain by Marley, but as time progresses, they slowly open-up to each other. The narrative reveals the despair they are both feeling and how even the most populous place can be the loneliest spot on earth. The play’s ending nicely concludes their dialogue without being too clichéd and leaves the audience with optimism for the two protagonists’ future. The play is well constructed and the performances believable. However, the noise around the venue is very intrusive, which may have made the acting appear a bit ‘shouty’ at times. (A good tip is to head to the front rows of the venue, if you can, as the view is also fairly restricted elsewhere). A pleasant 50 minutes though, and the writers and actors show much promise for the future.
