#9 Ada

Bedlam Theatre

Biggest disappointment of the Fringe so far. A play thrown together from A. Lovelace's Austen-y letters. Cast of eight students overacting and hamming essentially two roles, Lovelace and Babbage. Immersion breaking explanations of "the science and mathematics" with awkward slide shows and dramatic lighting. Awkward, confusing, difficult to follow and overdone.
