Double Booked (Ginny Davis Productions)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

Sometimes simplicity is key. ‘Double Booked’ is marvellous in its simplicity and homeliness, and it wins your heart for this very reason. ‘Double Booked’ is refreshingly honest comedy at its best. It might be geared towards an older audience, but Ginny Davis possesses such a natural comedic brilliance that both script and humour are wonderfully accessible to any audience. She shifts from wife, to husband, to daughter, to snooty friend, to teacher, and to several other characters, without missing a beat. Ginny Davis is a class act, as a stretched out, stay at home mother telling little white lies to avoid embarrassment . Wonderfully light and effortlessly hilarious, ‘Double Booked’ is the epitome of heart-warming comedy as the fringe intended it.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug (odd days only), 12.40pm.
