With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Fledgling Theatre answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
It is the heartwarming/heartbreaking story of Brothers Tobias and Alexander and the persistence they showed in creating their own Utopia.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
We’ve wanted to bring a show up ever since forming three years ago, and happily everything (story, people and venue) came together nicely this year.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Maybe don’t flyer in your pants for the whole month as I did in 2010; the subsequent cold took some shifting!
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
As well as a charming story, our audience is also going to hear music that Flight of the Conchords would be proud of AND get some free merchandise. You can’t say fairer than that.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Can I have three? Thanks. News Revue (Pleasance) Quiet year though… Mr. Incredible (Underbelly) and Happy Dave (Pleasance).
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
