Review: Vaults

A haunted pub, a series of mysterious deaths that may be linked, and one long night; Vaults is a one-act play by actor and playwright Jonathan Whiteside, performed in situ at locations where ghosts are said to walk. This year it was the vaults beneath Edinburgh’s Banshee Labyrinth, but in 2018 Vaults will be touring at the Withorn Crypts.

What the F**k is Lesbian Cinema & The Book of Gabrielle, SQIFF

In the run up to her live drawing show, What the F**k is Lesbian Cinema, and the screening of her new film, The Book of Gabrielle, Lisa Gornick briefly introduces herself to the audience members before she swiftly begins to draw some of them, a projector allowing us all to watch the process in real time. Handing out portraits and flirty asides with charm and a kind of frantic nervousness, Lisa offers an arresting beginning and although the audience is at first caught off guard, her humour and wit soon work their way around the room and everyone is more or less settled by the start of the show.
