We have had quiet small audiences at times, but it looks like some people really enjoyed spending time with us. Sorry to boast but we are so proud:
If a show at the fringe moved me this much to laughter then tears then I can’t remember when. Add to that elaborate creative props and scenery and great audience interaction and this is a real beezer. Come back and do Ernest Nobile next to me! Jamie Shepherd
Wonderful. Just what I love about the Fringe is when you are taken to unexpected places by the ingenuity and skill of the performers and writers. Expecting a romp but given a sensitively delivered tragi-comedy with a very moving ending. Littered with glorious silliness the Dead Rabbits are a must see show this year. ANTON GRASHION
An entertaining and moving show by a talented and enthusiastic cast! They took us with them to the Arctic, and the various depictions of the balloon were wonderfully done. Lesley Warner
A great show that is both funny and moving. Part celebration of the heroic age of polar exploration; part sentimental tragi-comedy with a dash of social relevance thrown in. Highly recommended. Keith Baxter
This turned out to be a real gem! Very creative staging, an interesting story, strong performances, and lots of humor. Highly recommend.JM
This show about a balloon expedition to the Arctic was in turns very funny and quietly heartbreaking. I was pleased that we’d found a show at the Fringe to satisfy my craving for polar exploration stories (after a dedicated search for every possible Arctic-related keyword); I can’t say how happy I am that it turned out to be so good. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good adventure story, with engaging performers and the sort of small, intimist setting that lets you be drawn into a play and won’t let you easily pull yourself back out.Aude C
I loved this show. It’s a good, true story to start with, but the clever writing, ingenious staging and excellent performances made it something more. It’s funny, sad, touching and original. My pick of the Fringe so far.John Fuller
What a lovely, and moving, show, beautiful to look at and impressively acted. Everything a one-act play should be. Highly recommended.Pippa Hyde
Best physical theatre show I’ve seen at fringe so far this year. 4 very good performers break the fourth wall (in the best way) to tell this true story with the most creative use of set I’ve ever seen at edfringe. First time fringe performers take Pleasance Dome by storm, go and see this really good show when you can; thoroughly recommend.Mark Reynolds
What a wildly inventive and beautifully realised show this is. One of the most talented, creative engaging young companies I’ve come across in a long time telling a sad, beautiful story with impeccable physical theatricality and a dash of comic genius. My pick of the Fringe. Buy your tickets in advance – this show should (and will) sell out.Philippa
Very humbled by the kind words. Thank you.
Please spread the word. We have five more shows and we have had such an amazing time. Help us to get more people to see the show. Everyday at 12:30 at Kingdome Pleasance, however afternoons spent mostly at the Pleasance Courtyard…. playing the old grumpy accordion and ukulele, flyering and drinking some fine (and not so fine) liquors…. Please join us or at least say hello if you see us!
Our hearts are still beating, but the flyering and getting people to come to see our show is tough…. Above … an example of how we feel at the end of a long day…. me (taking the picture) grumpy, Sammy- sleepy, James – witty, Jordan – happy, Jodie – angelic…as always.
We are so happy to be here – Two four STARS reviews in the pocket and lots of amazing public reviews and encouragement. We miss Edmonton too!!! Edmonton Fringe is about to start so we wish you to have a great one, our friends from so far away….
First Review in!!! Running around like crazy, eating burritos and stapling the stars onto the flyers. It’s been a bit rainy and sticky but that’s good, because it means people will come to the theatre…. please come and support….
We waited and waited for our lucky break and it came, quite unexpectedly this March, when we won LET partnership award and a place in the Pleasance Kingdome Venue for this year’s Edinburgh Festival. We are very nervous, quite excited, hungry and ready for it all…
So without further Ado… We are playing My Love Lies Frozen in the Ice in Pleasance Kingdome at 12:30 everyday from 31st of July all the way through (except 13th and 19th). Please come and support us, not only if you live in Edinburgh, not only if you live in Scotland…please come from all over the world, do not hesitate, hopefully will be worth your effort… if not see us after the show and we can straighten the matter over a beer or two. We went all the way to Canada (twice over) so we believe the world can come to us now. See you up North, we will be in the usual gear, playing the loud accordion and some flimsy Ukeleles….
Canada was an amazing experience for us. After winning ‘Best Emerging Artist’ Award we rolled to Edmonton and were even more astounded by selling out and receiving two further awards: STAFF AND VOLUNTEER PICKS
and then there were the HOLDOVERS. We couldn’t imagine being in a better theatre.
350-seater, with amazing staff, crew and facilities and also both shows sold-out!!!
We would like to thank Murray, Celia, Ray, Selena, Perry, Nick, Marc for your photos (the one on this blog too from Marc J Chalifoux Photography ) and all organisers, staff, volunteers, our hosts that put up with us for so long (especially Hitomi and Jeanette xx) all the artists that we made friends with and amazing audiences which we had so much fun with. We are so grateful!!! Thank you for an amazing ride!!!
We have one and only show in London (UK) on the 21st September at 7:30pm at St Mary’s University Theatre. Please come and check us out!
