One Man Star Wars Trilogy

One Man Star Wars Trilogy delivers exactly what the title promises. One man (Charlie Ross) performs a condensed 60-minute version of the original Star Wars Trilogy, providing all of the voices, actions, music, and sound effects. This performance could be considered a Fringe staple as Ross has been performing the show internationally for twelve years and he has been coming to Edinburgh for many of those years.

Ross’ impressions of Luke Skywalker, the Emperor, and R2-D2 are absolutely spot on, whereas others are just a little spotty; it’s a shame his voice is unable to mimic the depths of James Earl Jones’ Vader. It’s also likely he’ll miss a few favourite lines or moments here and there, but that can’t be helped in light of the compacted nature of the show. His ability to fly through scenes, make jokes on the inconsistencies of the plot, and sing John Williams’ infamous soundtrack in perfect pitch was certainly impressive.

It’s a fun good time for any fan of Star Wars. However, a word of advice: this is not a place for anyone who hasn’t seen the movies, you’ll be entirely lost. This is only for the geeks and they are here in droves.

Reviews by Lynne Marie Martens

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.

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.
