Und

Und

Where to begin is a question I cannot push from my mind. Und is a one-woman show about a variety of things – none of which I am entirely sure of. Annette Chown’s performance as Und is undoubtedly captivating, almost brilliant, but it is hard to critique as she screams and whispers her from line to line... 

Jessica Ransom: Unsung Heroes

Little Shop of Horrors

Little Shop of Horrors

This Fringe classic pops up most years, with songs such as ‘Somewhere That’s Green’ and ‘Don’t Feed The Plants’ bringing the house down.

Four Sad Faces, Suddenly

Four Sad Faces, Suddenly

When the only woman of the four brought out a loaf of sliced bread, I have to say I did predict the oncoming joke. However, it didn’t stop the laughter and brought the house down as a sarcastic revelation emerged that there are, in fact, numerous things far greater than the slight time-reducing factor of having pre-sliced bread...

The Bald Prima Donna

The Bald Prima Donna

With parody coming out of its ears, The Bald Prima Donna is a well-acted performance of Eugene Ionesco’s 1950 script. The play features two couples who meet and have whimsical and unconnected conversations set in a household with only a maid and the local fire chief as other characters... 

Banter Into Bed

Banter Into Bed

Banter Into Bed is an appalling excuse for a comedy as there is a vast lack of humour and a misunderstanding of the word banter. Two members of the audience had the right idea as they awkwardly scuttled out of theSpace on Niddry Street within the first ten minutes of the play... 

Circolombia - Intimo Urban

Circolombia - Intimo Urban

Flexibility really only comparable to a cheese string, muscles I didn’t know existed, and legs with a remarkably similar function to that of a pogo stick - this is of course Circolombia, comprised of performers from Colombia’s national circus school... 

The Improvised Musical

The Improvised Musical

This was the title of the only performance kindly suggested by a witty member of tonight’s audience. My Toes Invented Rock’n’Roll was a classic tale of a woman in a flower arranging competition who surprisingly won, through the medium of dance, and was asked by the competition co-ordinator to create a new type of competition... 

Flawless: Intergalactic Dream

Flawless: Intergalactic Dream

A million miles away from turbulence, Flawless have a smooth take off, a pleasant flight and a well-rehearsed landing that can’t help but bring a smile to my face.
