MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann, Kate McCann and Gerry McCann

THE GUARDIAN: “: Has the Fringe lost its sense of fun?”

“With shows about the Holocaust, military abuse and repressive societies, theatre in Edinburgh is trying to be more serious than ever. Is that a good thing?”

Mark Fisher is that big performing artzzzz show. He sees entertainment in suffering. He sees Madeleine McCann:

But it’s not just the Traverse. The first show I saw was Clockheart Boy by the well-drilled young ensemble of Dumbshow. Ostensibly a colourful play for children, with a stage full of doll-like characters accompanied by a wind-up keyboard player, it turns out to be a meditation on grief. Not only has the eccentric professor been bereft of his daughter for years since her mysterious disappearance (shades of Madeleine McCann), but he loses two further characters by the play’s ambivalent end.

We see her everywhere…

COMPARE AIRPORT PARKING: “Parents Take Flight And Leave Child At Airport”

The parents had another four children with them as they boarded the flight and apparently were only aware that the child had been left behind when the captain of their aircraft spoke to them on the flight. The girl was put on the next flight departing for Paris to be reunited with her parents…

With children going missing such as in the case of Madeline McCann the parents are very fortunate that their child was able to be reunited with them without suffering any harm.
