Masters Of Drip (Smash Castle Productions/ PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Thursday 8 August 2013

Comedy? Tragedy? Absurd theatre? This is all of these, and yet also something else. A heterogeneous mix of short sketches brilliantly enacted; and by writing their own script and composing their own music, Michael Friederich and Gavin Rankin are displaying an entire set of talents, becoming, in turn, creators and performers, puppeteers and puppets. They are only at the start of their career, but these two will definitely impress you. One cannot help but impatiently wish for a future, longer show with a powerful concept. Mark my words, with a little discipline, dedication and focus, these guys have great chances of becoming the next Gilbert & George – well, the theatrical, darker, version, that is. Don’t miss it.

The Fiddler’s Elbow, until 24 Aug (not 7, 13, 21), 7.00pm.
