Titania McGrath is a radical intersectionalist poet committed to feminism, social justice and armed peaceful protest. As a millennial icon on the forefront of online activism, Titania is uniquely placed to explain to you why you are wrong about everything and how to become truly woke. 'The latest genius twist in Britain’s long tradition of satirical spoof' (Daily Express). 'Outrageous and hilarious' (Irish Independent). 'Brilliant' (Daniel Sloss). 'Titania McGrath is a genius' (Spectator). 'Hilarious... perfectly captures the joyless tone of the woke Stasi' (Times). 'Lampooning the language of social justice is a cheap shot' (Observer).

I felt a bit guilty buying my ticket for this: after all the students selling them are almost certainly 100% woke and instantly regard anyone one who finds this character funny as the enemy, even if my older white male appearance hadn't given that away already.

As a fan of the Twitter account I had to check out the show though, even if I was ready to be disappointed. I needn't have worried- Alice Marshall has truly brought Titania McGrath to life, and gives one of the most energetic comedy performances of the Fringe, at times recalling the youthfully aggressive political conviction of the Young Ones' Rik. For some reason the 2 minute hate has stuck in my mind- poor Mary Berry!

Incredible. STUNNING and BRAVE.
Only can be summed up In a slam poem.
I've heard things I'll never unsee. Like a bat but in a neon green bikini (for a bit) zer words resonated, her blonde locks flowed like Jesus, on empowering period STOP by to be lambasted- no baby sheep should be harmed.

As an actress reading a script Titania does a good job, but sadly the script isn’t there. I quite enjoyed a sequence where a scene from 1984 was recreated but that was it for laughs, the rest was terribly dull and obvious. It’s satire made to appeal to 50+ year old ABC1’s who hopefully might see this after Cambridge Footlights and Paul Merton’s Impro Chums, saying nothing that would offend that demographic. As mentioned elsewhere Simon Munnery has been playing a similar character better for decades.

excellent satire. unfortunately the jokes will not reach the truly woke, as their determining factors are lack of humour and absence of self-doubt.
the show is written brilliantly and performed amazingly well.
the only slight mismatch (deliberate, of course) is that the poetry is just too good for the character!
I wonder why the people behind this show are not on mainstream British TV. any ideas?

Booked on a whim and observation of the queue a previous night. Not disappointed - for a comparison think of Brass Eye in the social media age. A glimpse of a disturbing future, which is now the present.

This is an hour of pure genius, at this time I think we are all in danger of trying to be so politically correct that we really are taking ourselves too seriously. Alice Marshall puts in an amazing performance as Titania McGrath, this young woman is worth watching as I'm sure we are going to see a lot of her in the future.

Absolutely brilliant show. This is my 39th fringe and it’s a long time since I’ve seen anything so well written and performed. If you know about Titania from Twitter then you wont be disappointed. The Slam poetry was hilarious. 5 star comedy actress.
Definitely Not for the easily offended.

The Telegraph (3/5 stars) 93 days ago

Twitter’s high priestess of woke – a censorious, militant feminist monster revealed as the handiwork of satirist Andrew Doyle – has secured a platform at the fringe, with the actress Alice Marshall gamely allowing herself to put her name to Titania’s severe face and deliver Doyle’s script.

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 94 days ago

Much as Titania McGrath’s Twitter account can sometimes seem indistinguishable from those of real social justice keyboard warriors, so does this live incarnation of the uber-woke blowhard often mimic the smug superiority and rampant egocentricity of genuine Fringe acts, albeit with none of the underlying insecurity on display. ...

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 101 days ago

First the Twitter account, then the book, now the stage show. Titania McGrath has cooked up a cross-platform storm by dropping truth-bombs on the perpetually phobic and spitting spoken word righteousness into the face of the fash. Some say she’s only a parody by comedian Andrew Doyle. Some say she...

Look for tickets... How far can you take a joke before it runs out of steam? Judging by Titania McGrath: Mxnifesto, it's about 35 minutes out of an hour-long slot.Titania McGrath, as performed onstage by Alice Marshall, is the brainchild of Andrew Doyle, playwright and comedian and co-writer of the...

Broadway Baby (5/5 stars) 104 days ago

Titania McGrath may just be a young Kensington girl with a modest Trust Fund and a thirst for social justice, but she's in Edinburgh to make a difference, and inspire us common people to recognise the injustices of the 21st century patriarchy all around us. Indeed, having apparently conquered the...
