Tioraidh*!

The Fringe 2017 is now over, the streets of Edinburgh are becoming walk-able again and hundreds of performers are packing up their shows and leaving the bustling capital…but never fear the Fringe isn’t over! Some of the best of the Fringe will be coming to the Maltings this autumn with what is no doubt now fully perfected performances. We’ve been tracking audience’s reactions for the past two weeks and we think you’re in for a treat! #BringingTheFringeToTheMaltings

Some special mentions…

Team Viking

Fri 15 September, 8.30pm
tickets: £12 (£10 concessions); pre-show dining +ticket £20.50 (£18.50)

…It’s worth saying at the outset: Team Viking is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. Period.

Team Viking is a wonderful one man show that blends heart-lifting, heartbreaking and laugh-out-loud moments as it tells the true story of when James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and given three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full viking burial.

Ever since its debut at the Fringe this performance has got rave reviews, as this year proves no different. Andrew Haydon from Postcards from the Gods concludes his review: ” Traditionally, I tend to put in disclaimers round about this point in a review, where I suggest it’s only my opinion, but here it isn’t… It is scientifically impossible to not love Team Viking. It should be prescribed on the NHS, it should be put on the curriculum, it should be shown nightly on television (and radio)… Team Viking really is that good.”. To see the full review click here. 

It’s been a fan favourite at the Fringe and we can’t wait for it to be at the Maltings in just over two time!

A Machine They’re Secretly Building

Tue 03 October, 7.30pm
tickets: £12 (£10 concessions)

Recently given a 4* review in the guardian for its fringe show (see full review here), A Machine They’re Secretly Building is a piece that will have you thinking long after the performance is over.

Its focus is the increasing use of surveillance in society and it charts a course from the Top Secret secrets of WWI intelligence (via 1972’s Chess World Championships, a disco in Oklahoma and the cafeteria at CERN) through to 9/11, the erosion of privacy, Edward Snowden and to the terror of a future that might already be upon us.

A Strange New Space

Sun 08 October, 11.30am
tickets: £8 (£7 when booked alongside another children’s theatre of the same price)

If you want to get your children into theatre this one woman show by Tessa Bide is the perfect introduction. This play tells us about Amira who is obsessed about space and we travel on an imagined voyage into space, paralleled with Amira’s real-life journey as a refugee across continents.

This show may be wordless but through the use of puppetry, original music and audience interaction it is completely engaging for all audience members and is suitable for children aged 4+

and last but by no means least….

Noise Next Door: Uproar!

Thu 21 September, 8pm
tickets: £15; pre-show dining + ticket £23.50

They’ve been on the BBC, ITV, the Fringe and now they’re coming to us! This comedy group creates a truly unique experience  as their entire show is improvised based on audience suggestions.

That it has sold out 9-times in a row at the Fringe is testament to its popularity and skill with one audience member saying you ‘can’t come to the Fringe and not see them’.
