Edinburgh Fringe sellout – A disgraceful tale of envy and neediness as three less-than-talented actors strive to perform Oscar Wilde’s classic with dignity and half-baked ambition. Good taste and political correctness fly out the window as they take on the uber-theatricals in an all-out assault on those more talented. Oscar will be turning in his grave!

REVIEWS: 

“**** The List – ‘…faultlessly executed with vivid performances and an infectious sense of mounting hysteria.’

**** Three Weeks – ‘A brilliant farce….The build-up was magisterial and soaked in lines that tumesced outrageous expectations.’

**** Fringe Review – ‘The jokes were coming so thick and fast I think the audience would have laughed at the stage directions.’

**** One4Review – ‘The dialogue is sharp and the insults inventive, frequently very earthy and convincingly venomous.’
