Lazy Susan – Double Act (Ditto Productions)

Lazy Susan

Lazy Susan have created a comic gem with just a few wigs, an eyepatch and a fluffy toy duck. The sketches reveal their wicked imagination and intelligent sense of mischief right from the opening scene (which involves a young couple being forced to make a sex tape by a non-existent serial killer). This show is full of heart and humour, while the writing is finely tuned and the stories are surprisingly involving. Celeste Dring and Freya Parker storm the stage in white make-up and braces, playing distinctive characters in a variety of different accents. Their styles of performance are unique, but they also complement each other very well. The sketches may baffle you to begin with, but you will find yourself drawn in very quickly.

Pleasance Dome, until 31 Aug.
