Decomposed! My Brother's Turning Into A Zombie 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 06, Aug 2014
Being performed in the Pleasance Above, this is always a good start as the Pleasance comes with it’s very own Fringe atmosphere, day or night. This was no different. The seating was well planned for a young audience and the whole of the show was accesible.
It tells the story of two brothers who have grown apart but come back together following a series of unfortunate evnts in their lives. One is a rather uppity conductor and the other is a rather lazy, smelly computer game addict. Through the medium of very amusing scripting, operatics and classical music the story unfolds into a very entertaining and somewhat educational performance which brings the brothers back together.
It is lively and fun, with more than a touch of humour and, of course a couple of fart and poo jokes, which are somewhat obligatory for childrens shows, this was greatly enjoyed by all who attended. I feel the show has been well matched to the age group in the Fringe guide, and was equally enjoyed by children and adults alike.
It is well worth a visit if you are in the Pleasance at all this summer, you won’t regret it.
July 30- August 25th. 11.15 (1hour)
