Choo Choo! (Or… Have You Ever Thought About ****** **** *****? (Cos I Have)) (StammerMouth / Sherman Theatre / Pleasance)

By | Published on Tuesday 15 August 2023

From laughing to feeling moved, it’s a whirlwind of emotions. As the days pass, both Nye and Duncan plan a vacation, however, Nye’s mind has other plans. A sketch comedy theatre production that explores the topic of OCD, when those intrusive thoughts seep into your mind. It starts off happy and colourfully, but gradually takes on a tone reminiscent of ‘Don’t Hug Me, I’m Scared’. Despite the shifting of tone, the comedy is skilfully executed and effectively intertwined with the central aim of the show. The performances of these friendly characters nail the tone of the show, making the audience invested in their friendship. A show that is worth choo..choo…choosing to see.

Pleasance Dome, until 28 Aug.
