Nothing Is Really Difficult @ Assembly George Square Box

Review by Emma Ainley-Walker | 15 Aug 2012
  • Nothing is really difficult

There are few words during Nothing Is Really Difficult, but there are some to describe it. It's clever and funny, the physicality is a playful mixture or simple and intense but what makes it so fantastic is the venue. A built-for-purpose box situated on the edge on George Square. The three actors are constantly running, swinging and climbing in and out, which begs the question what it must look like from the outside.

From inside, it's never less than entertaining. It should be noted that you can't leave during the performance for health and safety reasons. You'd be in too much danger of someone swinging into your head or smacking you with a door. What's it all about? It tells you on the back of the flyer. Nothing. Or so the cast tell you before you go in. Even if it's just about proving they built a really cool box, that's okay with me.

Make sure you arrive early. The show doesn't technically start until you're in the box, but the cast wait outside beforehand entertaining crowds and handing out flyers. Make sure you take one. It's the only wooden flyer you'll receive at the Fringe and it could double up as an encouraging piece of decor once you get home.
