A production to leave you speechless…and the actors for that matter. All or Nothing? by The Callàs Company is a beautiful piece comically portrayed through mime and expression to the backing of a carefully selected soundtrack…without uttering a single word.

When coming to the Edinburgh Fringe an investigation into the British Broadcasting Corporation is certainly not at the top of anyone’s to do list.

A beautifully written script that is only let down by poor tech and a lack of powerful performances. Way Back is an engaging piece of theatre that takes the dark and hard-hitting subject of suicide and without being distasteful is able to create comic elements and thought provoking dialogue.
