The First Day Of My Life (Five One Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

How you would choose to spend your final moments? This is the question posed by this almost pitch-perfect drama. With an array of characters from different backgrounds, the phrase ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ is put into full use. The cast give believable and moving performances, throwing in some truly laugh-out-loud moments along the way. While a few parts drag ever so slightly, and some of the dialogue is a little stilted, you forgive them as they deliver an ending which is more than worth the wait. As one of twelve plays that Five One Productions have brought to the Fringe this year, this is a very worthwhile way to spend an hour.

C eca, 3-29 Aug, 4.55pm, £6.50 – £9.50, fpp262.
