Little Shop Of Horrors

Seymour Krelborn, a florist’s assistant, has his life turned around when he comes across an unusual plant after an eclipse of the sun. Naming the plant ‘Audrey II’ after the salesgirl who is his love. Seymour tries to grow the plant, to no avail until he discovers its true diet: blood.

Based on Roger Corman’s B movie, this movie was extremely successful on Broadway, and its off-beat humour makes it a great favourite, particularly for youth groups. There are three different productions of it in the Fringe this year.

This production is great fun and performed well by a talented cast. The singing is very good throughout the whole company, not only from the leads, but also from the Ronettes and the younger cast members. It’s obvious that everyone is involved and enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoying themselves.

As ever, Audrey II is the scene stealer. As she is fed more and more blood, she gets bigger and bigger until eventually she is big enough to swallow someone whole, which of course she does. An extremely good and fun production.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
