Wolf Whistle

An uptight medic, a flirty school girl and a worn out bus driver are all worried about the same thing. Wolf Whistle opens as they’re called into the doctor’s office, all three visibly nervous. They’re all thinking the same thing, ‘Am I pregnant?’

Both laugh out loud funny and heartbreakingly emotional Wolf Whistle is beautifully written and performed

Wolf Whistle is three different monologues by three different actors, cleverly intertwining their stories at certain points and maintaining impressive energy throughout the performance, with exceptional delivery. There’s snobby, wannabe medic Amanda who tells the story of her many failed university interviews, getting more and more worked up as the play progresses; boy obsessed schoolgirl Becca talking about a new year’s eve party and her mother’s horrific past;

and ageing bus driver Claire, discontent with her mediocre life, useless husband and cats that won’t stop throwing up in her house. The monologues stop and start, switching rapidly between characters making for a fast paced and dynamic production.

All three of the women are incredibly strong, talented actors. They play their characters extremely convincingly and effortlessly, easily navigating their way around the monologues.They’re all captivating storytellers, managing to grab and maintain the audience’s attention throughout the play. Coco Claxton playing the erratic Amanda is especially competent launching into frenzied monologues with ease and Charlotte Kelly gave a touching and emotional performance as the fifteen year old schoolgirl Becca. The character of Claire played by Laura Ferguson could have faded into the background a bit, with Claire not having as strong of a personality as the other two characters, however Morrice plays the role confidently, showing real understanding of the character.

Both laugh out loud funny and heartbreaking,Wolf Whistle is beautifully written and performed and the Mermaids Performing Arts Fund from St Andrews University are certainly not ones to miss this Fringe!

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.

Location

The Blurb

Meet Becca, a mouthy schoolgirl. There’s only one full-length mirror in the changing room, and it’s hers. Meet Amanda, an overachieving medic who wants to tell you all about flossing too hard. Meet Clare, a frumpy bus driver with a cat called Satin who she sometimes calls Satan, by accident. Their periods have stopped, but are any actually pregnant? ‘Incredibly insightful… Witty and demanding’ **** (Stand.tab.co.uk). ‘Deeply emotional, hilarious and chilling’ (OwlEyeReview.com). ‘Powerful writing… outstanding performances’ (Star Radio). ‘Highly engaging… remarkably professional’ (TheTribeOnline.com). ‘Nuanced and highly charged… A howling success’ **** (Saint).
