A Day In November 2 stars
Zoo Southside (Venue 82)
It would be wrong to suggest the Fringe has no room for more than one show about the existential dilemmas of a cantankerous table-top puppet. But even if it weren't for the exemplary object theatre of Blind Summit's The Table, it would be hard to raise any enthusiasm for this one-man show by Rumen Gavanozov of Theater Atelie 313. Once you've admired the craftsmanship of his wrinkled, vegetable-like puppet, weighted in such a way that it can stand unsupported on its own two feet, you are left with a show that feels like one long, empty improvisation. It is no advert for Gavanozov's skills either as a puppeteer or an entertainer.
