A thrilling and hilarious new comedy featuring 1980s music, terrible dancing, hidden gold and guilty secrets. Julie and Dave live in suburbia, with an Uptown Girl daughter, a nice house and a huge secret which has held them together for 40 years. They met in 1983, when the music was gold, the fashion was gold, and Julie and Dave stole a lot of gold from a very bad man. Four decades later, how are they going to sell it and, more importantly, avoid the elderly psychopath who wants revenge – and his gold back?

Such a well written and well acted play. I’d love to see more from this production company! Absolutely brilliant!

A well-executed show that delivers on its promises of laughs, 80s music, and gold. Most certainly worth a viewing this year. 4****

An intelligent, witty and masterful comedy. As the scenario unfolds we are drawn into the daily ups and downs of Dave and Julie, a, seemingly, normal couple, as they attempt to find a way out of a problematic and potentially deadly situation. The focus is fixed on the relationship of the two as they navigate their issues with humour, warmth and love. I laughed quietly to myself all the way through, and sometimes out loud as well (as did the rest of the audience). Emerged with a big smile on my face. Well worth the effort, and highly recommended!!

Keith Walters 36 days ago

Incredible show combining fun, danger, 80’s music, and plenty of laughs. The two performers were full of energy, excellent dance moves, and some real gravitas when needed. I particularly enjoyed the role of the daughter (a nightmare indeed!). I can only give this show five stars—worth its weight in Gold! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A Fringe must-see!

Great show by 2 super actors- liked the use of media (daughters calls) and clever use of external noise to convey threat and menace- loved it! Go see this show if only for the fab George Michael/ Cher dance

Mary McDermott 37 days ago

An interesting new play, good chemistry between very skilled actors. An enjoyable hour, the 80’s were not essential to the play.

Gold! (****)
A loving senior couple must deal with an expensive bridezilla for a daughter, and his criminal past. I was recently married, and I must admit that I reveled in the couple’s playful love instead of laughing at such antics as I would have before discovering Debbie. Despite the added danger, the way they deal with their financial problem was fun and light hearted, but a Las Vegas wedding flashback unnecessarily disrupts the continuity and feeling of danger of the show.

This is the 9th most enjoyable of the 36 shows I have seen so far at the Fringe this year. I hope to see almost 200. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website:

Glenys Mclaren 49 days ago

Two very polished actors play an ageing couple taking the audience on a fast paced romp through their past which is rapidly catching up with them. Good script and music, makes a very funny and entertaining show. Get in early to get the front seats. 4*

Neil Gough 49 days ago

Really good piece of theatre well worth seeing. Well acted two hander, with great comedic content and some fantastic 80’s songs. Go see it if you can, you won’t regret it.
