Description

Following two culturally deeply unsettling, sell-out smash-hit runs in 2018 and 2019, this mind-bogglingly awful (and disquietingly successful) idea for a comedy extravaganza returns to the Fringe. JLR wrangles together an all-star cast of the best comedians and worst idiots into creating a never-before-seen adaptation of an unadaptable text. Previous catastrophic attempts include Francis Fukuyama's discredited political treatise The End of History, post-structuralist Roland Barthes' A Lover's Discourse, the iTunes Terms and Conditions, Ulysses and Á la Recherche du Temps Perdu. 'Fight for a ticket' **** (Telegraph).
