Home / Edinburgh Festival Fringe / FIFTY WORD FRINGE PITCH… Harriet Braine


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…Harriet Braine

Your pitch:



In Les Admirables, I bring five admirable women from the history of science to the comedy stage. In the interest of balance, I also tell the story of my life as a performer. The two worlds collide in a duet I sing (solo, obvs) as my grandmothers (both scientists, extraordinarily).


What other show shouldn’t we miss? Gráinne Maguire: Guys… It’s Problematic




Name of your show: Harriet Braine: Les Admirables
Venue: Gilded Balloon at Old Tolbooth Market
Dates: Jul 31, Aug 1-11, 13-25


Time: 18:00
