The Giant Jam Sandwich (New Perspectives Theatre Company)

By | Published on Wednesday 23 August 2017

‘The Giant Jam Sandwich’ is a charming adaptation of the book by Janet Burroway and John Vernon Lord. New Perspectives boast a talented trio of actor-musicians who expertly multi-role a whole village of characters. Audience interaction is handled well, with just enough to do to stop little hands getting fidgety, plus a sprinkling of jokes for grown-ups to stop us getting fidgety too! The recorded dialogue wasn’t as effective, however, and for the most part would have been better delivered by one of the performers off-stage. This show had a room full of under-fives enthralled for an hour, which is no small feat. I would recommend it to anyone with small children at the Fringe.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 28 Aug.
