The Fudge Shop

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

A play about fudge, performed in a fudge shop, with free fudge? – a winning concept in my book. It’s a simple story: new boy Patch helps his new Fudge Kitchen colleagues take on the evil Fudge Cottage empire. The cast of four enjoy themselves as much as the audience, as they gleefully shatter the fourth wall and adlib their way around an already very funny script. They frequently make each other laugh as well the punters, which in other shows might be irritating, but with the audience firmly on their side, here it just adds to their charm. It’s tremendous fun, enhanced further by the setting. It’s stuff like this that makes the Fringe great. Plus, free fudge!

The Fudge Kitchen, 5 – 28 Aug (not 15), 8.45pm (9.45pm), £5.00 – £7.00, fpp80.
