This still was taken from 'Black Sun Over Genoa' which is showing at the Edinburgh festival theatre from tommorow for 3 days before moving to Glasgow. There will be a full review appearing on this newswire very soon. In the meantime I'm happy to report that it's worth seeing and it's only a fiver if you are in town for the G8 marches.
