Dames

Bridesmaids with less glamour,
Women with less to say,
A play with much less humour.
Set in a toilet.

EDINBURGH PREVIEW: Ben Fogg – How I Won Best Newcomer 2017

A once in a lifetime opportunity to see the greatest living comic of every generation. I’ve written a heart-warming, pole-stiffening watermelon of a show. I'm delightful and inspiring, like a hill-top wizard battling a sadness dragon. Like comedy? See it done properly for once.

EDINBURGH PREVIEW: Poll Function by Greg Shewring

Two west country plonkers returning to suburbia to wreak havoc on childhood dreams and a system they believed would bring them future opportunity. Confined within a car for most of the journey, old secrets are aired out and open questions are asked about who they have become since leaving the suburbs. Speeding through girls, grades and badgers, they fight, spit, cry and kill but still find it hard to accept their feelings are only human. Blending unfaltering dialogue and physical expression with a booming backseat soundscape, Poll Function is a hilariously empathetic exploration of youthful hedonism and social responsibility in 2017.
