John Pendal: How to Escape from Stuff
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Johns beautifully candid 2016 show, International Man of Leather, won the hearts of audiences and critics alike and went on to tour the world. This year he looks back on the decade he spent as an amateur escape artist. It all began when he was tied up by missionaries on a Welsh beach and ended with him tying up Michael Fassbender in Assassins Creed. He also looks at how escapology might be useful in solving other problems. 'Fringe brilliance' ***** ( 'Engaging and hilarious' **** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).
