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 Rebecca Norris, Lynn from The Wedding Receptionanswering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
It’s an immersive comedy unlike any other,where the audience becomes guests at a surprise wedding reception…
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
The Wedding Reception made its Edinburgh debut last year in a very intimate setting and we had a fantastic response. Now we have a bigger and better version of the show, so of course, we had to bring it to Fringe. And we have a venue that’s new to the Fringe too, the beautiful 4-star George Hotel.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Experiment a little with the shows you see and you will be rewarded greatly. Embrace the incredible variety of the Festival, and you will discover amazing things you might otherwise never consider seeing.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer?
At the Wedding Reception audiences get to enjoy an hilarious two-hour comedy with a delicious three-course meal included in the price of the ticket. Four actors play a total of nine characters and the audience play the guests – it all combines to give an original slant on the elements of classic farce.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience.
