Description

Following a surprising (and culturally deeply unsettling) smash-hit, sell-out run at last year's Fringe, this mind-bogglingly awful, disquietingly successful idea for a late-night comedy extravaganza returns. John-Luke Roberts wrangles an all-star cast of the best comedians and worst idiots into creating three more never-before-seen adaptations of unadaptable texts. 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. **** (Telegraph).
