Beowulf: The Blockbuster is a wonderfully engaging piece of theatre reflecting on the intersection between literature and real life, about how we use story-telling to make sense of the world. It’s universal myth-making at its best.
With so much in the Fringe tailored exclusively to either adults or children, it’s great to have a show that appeals equally to both.
Zach and Tom are best friends; they are also two very funny guys who present an entertaining hour of comedy and theatre through a series of scenes loosely based around the theme of friendship.
Le Gateau Chocolat and Jonny Woo are onto a real winner with A Night at the Musicals. It’s a simple but highly effective concept: two hugely entertaining performers in drag (bathing suits mostly) presenting highlights from the musicals.
It’s rare to find a children’s show that is so densely packed with ideas, while also remaining accessible, but Duckie manages to pull this off.
Late night at the Fringe is a strange, crazy time and thankfully there are an increasing number of acts that take advantage of this unique atmosphere. The well-lubricated audiences of 11 pm are up for a good time and Cult delivers just that.

It’s an honest, edgy recording, delivered with fat riffs, tight grooves and a whole lot of soul. Listening to Mara feels like a late night juke-joint with a bourbon in your hand.
Along the Way makes for great summer listening in the chilled out, Jack Johnson vein.
