REVIEWS

FLEETO by Paddy Cunneen

FLEETO is a hard-hitting, gritty play. It's about thugs and cops and a vicious knife murder in the Glasgow slumlands. It is dark and demoralising - and yet it is unadulterated joy." The Advertiser - Samela Harris

“A fantastic ensemble brings this Iliad-inspired tragedy to gritty life in effective Shakespearean-style verse.” Matt Byrne, The Sunday Mail

“There’s not a weak link in the UK cast of four or in six local lads who have been recruited to the company as the “fleeto” (Tom Cornwell, Alex West, Nic Pernini, Ben Cosh, Lachy Micklewait and Brodie Perone).”Theatre Guide Online

“Knowles is quite remarkable as the victim's mother, her silence at the news of her sons death more moving than any histrionics.” Barry Lenny, Arts Hub Online

“Fleeto is powerful theatre and is illuminating as the backstory for companion piece Wee Andy (also playing this Fringe). It is a revealing, and rather depressing, journey into the world of the lower classes,”

WEE ANDY by Paddy Cunneen

WINNER HOLDEN STREET THEATRES EDINBURGH AWARD 2011

FLEETO by Paddy Cunneen

Presented by

Holden Street Theatres and Tumult in The Clouds

THEATRE (UK)

When his friend is stabbed, a young lad from a housing scheme falls in with a gang. The terrible revenge he takes at random brings disaster on himself and the family of his victim. Inspired by the Iliad and drawing on Glasgow’s ‘knife culture,’ Fleeto is a hard-hitting contemporary Scottish re-invention of the Greek tragic form. Using appropriately strong language, it is by turns frightening and deeply moving, provoking much thought and debate on the issue of violence in our communities.

“performed in a stunningly rich, flexible Shakespearian style verse”...

***** British Theatre Guide.
