This was the most fun I’ve had in a show in a long time! This was such an original and hilarious idea, to create a show that pokes fun at the cringe-worthy reality shows our generation has become so intrigued by. I also appreciate that the two writers took on the responsibility of playing all characters. It shows courage, talent, and a great capacity for a challenge. It was also great to feel validated as a single woman watching these two wonderful comedic actresses take jabs at the stereotypes we see, and enjoy themselves while doing it. These dating shows today are kind of ridiculous, and these two gals knocked it out of the park.

The additional effects of the video diary and host broadcast was a nice touch and really helped me to feel immersed in the dating show environment. I enjoyed this so so much, and I would see this show again in a heartbeat!

This was such a feel good show, the music was on point for the 90's and the whole audience joined in for a dance along to some classics which included glow sticks - a 90's must! The show itself was funny and the characters were well thought out. It seemed to be the three S's were in play - a seamless, smooth and slick production that had everyone engaged and waiting to see what would come of it all! Would highly recommend going to see the show if you get the chance, me and my friends loved it and cant wait to see what comes next.

Second Chancers was the perfect fringe show to get the party started! A hilarious and well observed parody of 'love island' culture, the performers showed incredible character work that won the audience over instantly. This alongside some really engaging audience involvement makes this show an absolute blast. If you want a great time and some belly laughs, this is the show to see.

Second Chancers was exactly the palate cleanser we needed to loosen us up in the midst of a hectic Fringe. They've got everything: relentlessly witty writing, exceptional character acting, multimedia cut-aways, Superman-esque costume changes, and a carefully curated mix of 90s bangers! Any show that gets the whole audience up and dancing surely deserves 5 stars. Pure, unadulterated joy.
