THE QUEST: A FANTASY MUSICAL

ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS AS YOU LIKE IT, by William Shakespeare (by Joel Lipson)
Shakespearean disaster comedy: There could be no greater honour than premiering a lost work of Shakespeare at the Edinburgh Fringe. Great honours don't always go to the deserving, which explains why this motley crew are murdering the Bard's verse (and each other) in a rollicking disaster comedy straight out of 1614. It'll be alright on the night if the director can rediscover his marbles, the star remembers his pills, the cast can distinguish between prop and real swords, and the techie can stay firmly offstage!

PIRACY! A COMEDY ON THE HIGH C's (2013)
Hoist the mainsails and prepare for a thoroughly ridiculous adventure. Blackbeard meets Blackadder with villainous accents, absurdly catchy songs, disguises, intrepid damsels, captains in distress... wait, is that right? The pirates are determined to defeat the stuffy Royal Navy, find the lost Infanta of Spain and buckle every swash in sight. Meanwhile, hapless Captain Trumpeter and his bold (if slightly soprano) first officer are far more concerned about a visiting admiral with a sex fixation and his beautiful daughter (with an admiral's daughter fixation). Oh well, splice the mainbrace!
