Itch: A Scratch Event (Comedians Theatre Company and Pleasance)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

Dazzling new writing and a cast of well-established actors who know exactly what they’re doing make these precious few shows absolutely enthralling. The Comedians Theatre group is made up of working writers, comedians and actors who want to try new material in front of an audience, so what we see is entirely unique, new and fantastic. From short plays featuring famous actors, to improvised poetry that reacts even to the moths that fly across the spotlight, the hour speeds by. For a show in the lower price-band of the Fringe, we can see a surprising amount of confident talent drawn from all across the Festival. This is a wonderful new dark comedy grown-ups will relish.

Plesasance Courtyard, 15 – 16 Aug, times vary, £8.00, fpp93
