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.

Old Joe’s Fish ‘n’ Chill

be•wilder theatre company presents: Old Joe's Fish 'n' Chill

It was Old Joe's golden age: in a time when borders did not exist, travellers and regulars would queue up in front of the club for its famous fish and chips and colourful dance-floor. Everyone was a foreigner and everyone felt at home. Until the incident. One year after a terrorist attack, Old Joe’s Fish 'n' Chill looks so decrepit one might assume it’s out of business.

Yet it remains the only place left in the world where people from anywhere can come and go without a visa.

There, a French drag queen, a German-Japanese gangster, a Finnish letter thief, a Czech dictator, a lungless Brazilian, an English terrorist and an invisible drifter meet for the first – and possibly last – time.
