SUCH A GREAT SHOW. By far the highlight of our Fringe. My sides literally ache from laughing. So many amazing moments. The xylophone solo. When the assistant was named Olga. My best mate was the bastard bassoon and gave a thrilling resignation speech. When we all sang Coldplay. When the maracas player was disgusting. Super super fun interactive show definitely go be part of it!!

This show LITERALLY made our Fringe. My husband will forever be the Bastard on Bassoon and I learnt to play a goodness-knows-what. Brilliantly written, stunningly performed, belly-laugh funny. FIVE MASSIVE STARS. Would go again in a heartbeat.

This was so much fun. I left the show laughing and chortling to myself for a good several hours or more afterwards. Having gotten involved in a particular part of the audience participation, I now realise that I must spend many more hours practicing my bassoon!
It was a small audience in a much reduced Fringe experience .. but this show was really great, as a Fringe goer of more than 30 years, I put it in my list of very successful choices. Highly recommended! :)
