Review: Them! | The Fountain
The National Theatre of Scotland's production of Them! takes our predefined ideas around the safe setting of the chat show, the light chitchat and middle ground patter designed to never challenge anything at the risk of offence as a perfect setting for subversion. You may think the concept of a chat show where the guests are the main players from a Scottish musical remake of 1954 Sci-Fi horror classic Them! - in which giant ants wreak havoc on post-war Los Angeles- may be a tough sell to those seeking an exploration of the human condition, but bear with me.
