Enter The Dragons (A&E Comedy)

By | Published on Tuesday 21 August 2018

You can forget about Prince Charming because the dragons are here to save the heroine from drowning in the ‘sea of apology’. Thank god for Abigail Dooley and Emma Edwards, the divinely bonkers dragons stroke kick-ass godmothers and their totally unapologetic and brilliantly outrageous take down of the judgements ageing women face. A flawless show, featuring costumes and set as monstrously surreal as they are beautiful, this is a cunning and poignant fight-back delivered with a fantastically wicked sense of humour. Imagine Ab-fab and the Mighty Boosh on a mad bender in a ‘Shrek’ inspired fairytale tavern and then some. Anyone expecting a lovely fairytale with a heroic prince rescuing a young beautiful princess from a mad spinster can do one. Sorry not sorry.

Pleasance Dome, until 27 Aug.
