Edinburgh Festival: Meeting Cassandra

The Independent Culture
The Actress stands quite still questioning us with beseeching eyes for a long, intense moment. The ensuing drama is a complex attempt to link the story of Cassandra with the Actress's own love affair. When Cassandra reneged on her deal to sleep with Apollo, he cursed her with never being believed; this translates confusedly in this story to the need to open your heart to a man. Antonia Smits's performance (directed by Tmu-Na's Nava Zukerman) is remarkable, but the writing is nave. Demarco's (venue 22), St Mary's School, Albany St (031-558 3371). 6.15pm. To 27 Aug
