A fringe first. A show coming to perform in your home or accommodation. Dan was very friendly and brought along his baby, Arthur to perform his show. It's not drama, but more of an experience and is very interesting. None of us had seen anything like this before but we would certainly do it again. A pleasant hour spent with Dan and his well behaved baby.
