What I liked

The Tomb is a great example of what Fringe is all about: intimate stories that we’ve never heard before, which often cannot be told on a larger scale. The Tomb is a meditation, for both the main character Anthony and the audience alike. The highlight was seeing this young lead take on such a difficult role, delivering a huge amount of dialogue precisely and with ease. Maybe it’s cheesy to say, but this show did feel like a kind of mass, and as a lapsed Catholic myself it was interesting to see the origins of some of Christianity’s most fundamental rituals in the context of a stage show. Really cool concept executed very tastefully.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

A quiet yet challenging piece with a really interesting concept – absolutely worth seeing especially for those interested in religion or history.
