Add to favourites

Description

After getting dragged along to the smelliest, most infamous night club in Edinburgh by her new friends, Frida the Fresher meets Matt, a posh English guy from the rival university. It’s love at first sight, but only for Frida. Grab your pals and a pint and come along on Frida’s journey as she tries to win Matt over and learns to navigate the many unwritten rules of university life without dying from alcohol poisoning. A hilariously honest play about being a student, falling in love and finding yourself. (And failing miserably).

I really enjoyed this play. I would go so far to say that is was better than some Edinburgh Fringe shows I have paid to see. The fast-paced nature of the play effectively portrayed the life you live while at university (with the occasional over-exaggeration thrown in!) Every character seemed to have well thought out layers which were explored during the performance, allowing for a very entertaining watch. The direction and comedy was spot on as well.

Awesome show that is very well written and very funny! It is especially fun for anyone who ever was a fresher at uni. I had a great time and would definitely recommend to go see it!

Went to see this show last night and the place was full of people and laughter the whole way through. Very relatable if you’re a uni student but funny whatever age you are. Really well choreographed and great direction by Lisa Emily Peterson and Clementine Gruer! Also great acting! 10/10 would recommend to a friend
