Patrick Monahan Cake Charmer

Patrick Monahan Cake Charmer

Audiences love Patrick Monaghan. How could they not? He has an affection for his fans that is as endearing as it is sincere. The hugs he doled out upon entering the Gilded Balloon Wine Bar might border on overfamiliar were it not for the boundless good-natured joviality that drives this comic forward... 

Bygone

Bygone

Bygone depicts the eccentric gentlemen’s apocalypse. If they made a sequel to Withnail and I, setting it in a dystopian future wherein the booze has long since ran out, their own livers fermenting to keep them insane, it might look a little like this... 

Who's Driving Adam?

Who's Driving Adam?

Every so often, an act comes along to ask, ‘What is comedy, anyway?’ Generally, these acts employ this gem as a tool of deflection and are, in fact, a little talentless. Art Dodd prove themselves to be masters of the awkward tension... 

Buckingham's Finest

The 'Lockerbie Bomber'

The 'Lockerbie Bomber'

Kenneth N. Ross, writer of The ‘Lockerbie Bomber’, does not let his audience relax for a moment; he cannot, for the subject of his play is such that no audience should – nor can – forget the events that instigated this tragedy... 

Tracy

Tracy

Tracy is the brainchild of second-year Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama student, Sophie Morgan-Price. As well as writing this short but sweet three-hander, she plays the eponymous character, a tenacious middle-management Tesco employee... 

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis

Resuscitate Theatre take the seminal Kafka story, which acts as a many-legged metaphor for the sudden realisation that one’s life has totally changed, and makes it explicit as a gender-swapped Gregor wakes up to find herself suddenly transformed into an old woman... 

Shit-faced Shakespeare

Shit-faced Shakespeare

A year from their 2012 debut, the hype surrounding Shit-faced Shakespeare continues to saturate the Fringe. A severely cut-down version of a Bard comedy (this season, Much Ado About Nothing) is made a little more interesting as one member of the six-strong cast must wet their whistle in the wings minutes before the show...
