The Starship Osiris Ed2016

Captain Harrison has it all, the muscles, the brains, the women, and ‘The Starship Osiris’ tells the story of his perilous journey to the ends of the universe. Accompanied by his crew, all – in his own words – very “minor” characters, nothing can resist him. Well, that is until the cast members, tired of his arrogance, decide to rebel against him and jeopardise his show. What starts off as a sci-fi parody then turns into a chaotic mess as George Vere desperately tries to regain control of the performance. Expect skimpy costumes, pop songs, hilariously poor special effects, and quite a lot of swearing! Possibly one of the funniest shows running at the Fringe!

Underbelly Med Quad, until 29 Aug.
