Mrs Moneypenny Returns (Mrs Moneypenny / IMWP)

By | Published on Monday 5 August 2013

After a two years absence, Mrs Moneypenny returns to the Fringe with a sensory spectacle… in a kitchen. With the help of her assistant Dawn, and one or two members of the audience, she cooks and natters her way through the hour, touching on topics from shooting outfits to spurtles. If that’s not enough to tempt you, then the aroma of gourmet snacks (sweet and savoury) as they bake in the oven certainly will. And yes, you do get a taste. The performance is bright and breezy, and not at all penny-pinching; both the prepared material and improvised moments will keep you smiling. Doesn’t matter if you’re not a fan of AGAs – this show is a thoroughly delectable experience.

AGA Showroom, until 25 Aug, times vary.
