Have you worked with a theatre director so insensitive and rude that you wanted to quit? These girls did exactly that. All the female cast members boycott the opening night of Exeter University’s Fiddler on the Roof pushing the director past his breaking point. As the clock ticks down, he must convince his cast to return to the stage. With his own friendships tested, will he see the error of his ways? Tradition! is a brand-new backstage farce that looks at friendships and theatre, mixing hilarious comedy with tender moments of emotion. Somehow, the show must go on!

Superb show with an incredibly talented young cast. Reminded me of the type of sitcom I grew up watching that made me all the happier for watching.

David Sanders about 15 hours ago

Loved the show. Characters you will empathise with and situations we have all found ourselves in with close friends. Hit a few nerves with excellent performances especially from the ‘Basil Fawlty’ - esc Freddie! The other cast members were equally good in their different characters to compliment Freddie. Cannot fail to enjoy - great show from 6 very talented performers.

Firstly, the good news! This is a brilliantly written and well acted comedy piece which addresses serious issues in a non preachy way to get its points across. Very worthy of sell out audiences throughout its run. Now the bad's only on until Saturday so you haven't got much time left to get your tickets and see this wonderful show!

What a great wee show - new writing at its best - challenging a long-standing issue we can all identify with in a witty and clever way. Fabulous performances by these young actors- From their bios it looks like they have all had amazing drama training - and it shows! I’m definitely going again! Catch it if you can! Thanks guys.
