Five Go Off on One!
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Who is that strange Frenchman signalling from the island? What's in Aunt Fanny's famous fish pie? Has anyone actually seen Timmy? The Famous Five are back! Shedload presents Robert Eyers' milk-squirtingly hilarious spin on a childhood favourite! With thick-knit short shorts all round, and an irresponsible amount of hammy-hampered picnics, this promises to be a surrealist, satirical, silly marsh of comedy genius ***** (Varsity). 'I think we all need to calm down and do what we always do in an emergency.' 'Good thinking George. We're the Famous Five... and it's time we had a picnic!'
