With time being precious during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we challenged this year’s acts to deliver a 50-word elevator pitch for their show. This time it’s the turn of…George Fouracres on Gentlemon.
|It’s about the Black Country, birthplace of the industrial revolution and the oldest dialect in England, my pigeon-flying champion grandad, religion, violence, jokes, bricklaying, McDonalds, Wolverhampton, animals, TV, toilets, sweets, sea shanties, and the fact that I grew up behaving like a minor aristocrat, but in a post-industrial lock-making town.|
|What other show shouldn’t we miss?||
Pierre Novellie’s ‘You’re Expected to Care’ – very funny, very clever, and my best friend.
|Name of your show:||George Fouracres: Gentlemon|
|Venue:||Bunker One – Pleasance Courtyard|
|Dates:||31 July; 1-17, 19-26 August|
