Séayoncé:  Res-erection (Berk’s Nest And Dan Wye)

By | Published on Sunday 28 August 2022

See sass and seance combined with Dan Wye’s return to the Fringe in this side-splitting show. We are welcomed into an atmospherically designed set, as our host reads from a silver ball, and with the support of a sweetly dressed (butch sounding) pianist, Séayoncé seemlessly flits from vivacious vocals to snappy jokes, interacting directly with the audience. The narrative builds as the spirits are summoned, and we find out there is an ‘ass hole’ (‘a soul’) in the room – in the form of a Fringe flyerer, who inhabits Séayoncé’s body – whose desire to stage a show leads to an explosive finale. Or, so we think: the show is actually finished off by a moment of heartfelt introspection. An uproarious queer comedy show – hilarious and fabulous in equal measure.

Assembly Roxy, until 28 Aug.
