Rom Com Con – Free (Mace And Burton / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

Over at Assembly George Square, darling of the stand-up documentary Dave Gorman is preparing for another crowd-pulling show; but across the street in a dark basement, Lizzy Mace and Juliette Burton have perfected his art. ‘Rom Com Con’ is a tale of their search for love in the style of that beleaguered genre, the romantic comedy. Like all the best rom-coms, the end of the show is predictable, but the journey is hugely enjoyable, and Mace and Burton make a great team. Full of laughs and with the odd tear-jerking moment thrown in for good measure, ‘Rom Com Con’ is just like its source material: great fun and perfect for anyone who’s ever despaired of finding love.

Medina, 6 – 27 Aug (not 9, 16, 23), 12.05pm (1.05pm), free, fpp143.
