Description

Named one of the 19 Unmissable Online Theatre Experiences by American Express Essentials Magazine, Lag: A Zoomsical Comedy is the world's first original musical created to be performed over video conferencing. In just 12 minutes, Lag tells the story of a class on meditation and self-care that, in May of 2020, has made the move to online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Four students and an instructor steadfastly attempt to attain inner peace in an online environment beset by all the distractions and frustrations of a "new normal." Written and directed by Haddon Kime.

Got to be one of the Fringe's most intriguing offerings and probably one that will endure the longest. From a deceptively simple concept Haddon Kime has created something that is fun, funny and engaging in equal parts. We've all been there and probably wouldn't want to go back but you've got to take your hat off to the performers for the way they make the situation relatable and watchable. Works well with the songs and music.

This was such a fun little start to the Fringe for me! I'm not in Edinburgh yet but I got to experience my first Fringe show before I came up!
A very pleasant bite-sized musical, which I assume was made during lockdown and was therefore a logistical nightmare to produce, but also a testament to the fact that skill, creativity and art simply cannot be stifled!
A small cast of strong singers created an all-too-familiar scenario that I'm sure many of us can relate to from recent years. I thought Trevor's voice stood out particularly.

This 10-12 minute musical verging on operetta will take you back to pandemic feels in a big way. I found it's ultimate message and community support very moving. Haddon Kime is a layered and intricate composer for voices and instruments. One of the most professional quality and engaging zoom shows you'll see.
