Bad Play is almost becoming a permanent fixture on the Fringe, this being the fourth outing for this frenetically paced absurdist comedy.
This time we're 1,000 years in the future, and humankind has predictably pretty much destroyed the planet and generally made a mess of things. If you're looking for a plot, then you're probably missing the humour - but if you throw Star Trek, The Matrix, 2001 A.D. and Star Wars all in a tumble drier, the fluff caught in the filter would probably look a lot like Bad Play 3.
Production values are intentionally low, and the mistakes are skilfully crafted to make this an unmissable, laugh-out-loud romp. High octane performances from Jeremy Limb, Paul Litchfield and Dan Mersh. With their pedigree of Bad Plays, these guys own the format. Much copied, but never equalled. Do yourself a favour and see the original.
