Description

It's the big day. The announcement is in a few hours time and film producers David and Kate anticipate their prestigious Civil War epic, Catch Me Some Freedom, will be nominated for plenty of Goldies. Until, however, they learn that the film's heroic lead role, played by a white actor, was, in real life, actually Black. Fearing an intense and career-jeopardising backlash, David and Kate frantically try to keep the film from getting any attention whatsoever. Black Bat Productions (***** (EdFringeReview.com)) returns to the Fringe with this "timely", quick-witted satire written and directed by Nathaniel Brimmer-Beller.

Absolute corker, top quality script and production enable the audience to absorb satire at its best. I appreciated the super sharp one liners and sudden twists. It's all served up at breakneck speed yet delivered with a precision that still makes it easy to follow. It's for shows like this that we come to the Fringe, go treat yourself!!

Brilliant
I could not have enjoyed this more - clever, well-performed, cutting
I rarely laugh out loud but this show proved the exception.
It deserves every success
My show of 2021 Fringe beyond any doubt

many genuine laughs...A delicate balance is struck between cynicism and the demands of characterisation.

Theatre Scotland (4.5/5 stars) 27 days ago

This is a thoroughly enjoyable production, featuring two great performers and a fantastic script which continuously delivers in terms of laughs and reflecting on Hollywood’s broken industry in terms of diversity.
