The Dipper – Free (Homewood Rose Theatre Company / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

“Where would all you journalists be without people like me?” asks one of the characters. What would the Fringe be without shows like this? What the venue and acting skills lack, is made up for by enthusiasm and a wonderful script that is unconventional and charming. The show consists of two sisters – one good, one bad – a lady, and the Yard. Lace and trench coats put the audience right into an Agatha Christie mood as they listen to the sisters arguing right and wrong. Is it better to live a decent life and deny who you are, or to be true to yourself even if that means deceit and dishonesty? Concentrating on the words, it makes for charming and light afternoon entertainment.

Laughing Horse at The Newsroom, 5 – 12 Aug, 4.00pm (5.00pm), free, fpp256.
