Don Quixote

August 8, 2005 |

I have seen various versions of the story of Don Quixote de La Mancha but they were seldom as simple to follow as this production. Performed by a small cast of only 6 they cover the adventures well, making … Read More

No Exit – Artemis Theatre Company

August 8, 2005 |

There is always a quandary in my mind when the same play is on more than once in the Fringe. Do I attend one or the other or both? I decided this time to attend both with this production … Read More

All in the Timing

August 8, 2005 |

There are sketch shows and sketch shows and then there is Peepolykus. As a comedy troupe they are slicker than a gallon of GTX. Their oh so clever comedy routines are well written, superbly acted I could not believe … Read More

Groom

August 8, 2005 |

Another play on the Fringe dealing with internet ‘groom’ and it cannot be easy to write a piece on this subject without making it too dark, and yet it obviously is not a subject that can be treated lightly. … Read More

The Real Inspector Hound

August 8, 2005 |

Tom Stoppard’s play within a play, part farce, part send up, and part who-dunnit, receives an enthusiastic treatment from the the Rep Theatre Company. The opening act maintains the separation between the two minor critics and the country house … Read More

A Limited Run

August 8, 2005 |

A play about about God can be a dangerous project, but this production should not upset the religious fraternity. Andy Gray fits comfortably into the role of a very Scottish God who has given up his heavenly mansion for … Read More

Teechers

August 8, 2005 |

In the ten years that Harland Hamstrings have been attending the Fringe I suppose they have used more John Godber plays than any other playwright, and they have dusted off Teechers once again as one of their 5 pieces … Read More

Drowning Point

August 8, 2005 |

This one-woman play by Nicholas Earl centres on Beth, Claire Porter, a thirty something happily married teacher whose life falls apart when her husband is drowned in a storm whilst he is sailing. If this is not bad enough, … Read More

The Odd Couple

August 8, 2005 |

There are few shows totally appropriately named, but if you consider the two leading performers you see what I mean. The Odd couple, Bill Bailey, as Oscar Madison the scruffy, devil may care man about town, prevents Alan Davies, … Read More
