Executed for Sodomy: The Life Story of Caterina Linck is already receiving rave reviews, including this 5* one from Three Weeks: "the best theatre I’ve seen here so far...shifting temporality, imaginative direction and extraordinary acting - make this utterly spellbinding".
Although drawing from an 18th Century court transcript that details the first recorded instance of a same-sex marriage, "this new show by Shift Productions seems timely and strangely contemporary", widely praised for the "quality of the writing [which] is invariably impressive, using vividly theatrical scenes to dive straight to the heart of the searing issues of identity, freedom, masculinity, patriotic militarism, misogyny and prejudice" (Scotsman).
Fanni Compton continues to make her Fringe debut one to remember with unanimous praise for her central performance. Come see the show that is making critics and audiences alike sit up and take notice.
