Foiled Ed2016

‘Foiled’ is an all-singing, all-dancing insight into the secret lives of hairdressers. Set in a functioning hair salon on Clerk Street, the show is a bubbly burst of fun. It features hapless manager Sabrina, played by co-writer Beth Granville, stealing scenes with her bratty, self-serving, but actually quite endearing behaviour. Sabrina is a great comedy character, and is balanced by Stephanie Siadatan’s talented hair stylist Tanisha – underling, straight man, and heart of the show. Rounded off by bald Richie (Dominic Morgan), who needs a full head of hair fast, the cast of characters bounce off each other beautifully in this hour of fast paced, laugh-a-minute comedy. If only every trip the hairdressers could be this fun!

Ruby Rouge, until 29 Aug.
