Questing Time (Monkey Toast)

By | Published on Friday 10 August 2018

The setup is simple. “It’s just D&D”, explains host Paul Foxcroft – it’s not all going to turn out to be some elaborate piece of theatre. Nope – every night, three guest comedians join Foxcroft on a ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ adventure, which we get to watch. Last night, Briony Redman, David Reed and Richard Soames proceeded through an adventure with such incompetence that it ended when the ghoul they were trying to kill tore its own throat out with boredom. Our audience (mostly gaming enthusiasts, granted) wept with laughter. Foxcroft is a superb dungeon master too, with a great memory for the bizarre character quirks he unwisely allows the comedians to choose for themselves. I plan to go again as soon as possible.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 24 Aug.
