Four Go Off On One! A Jolly Romp Through Childhood (2017 Edinburgh Run)
By Robert Eyers

4:30pm, Wed 2nd August 2017 - Sun 27th August 2017, at The Wine Bar, Gilded Balloon @ Teviot
Summer Vacation

This bubbling farce returns to Edinburgh after its sell out run with Just the Tonic in 2016.

One hour, eight comedians and hundreds of pages of children’s literature lovingly ridiculed into submission... Find out what smugglers really smuggle, if picnics actually help investigate mysteries, and who in Dorset makes the best fish pies. If you’ve ever read a children’s adventure and thought “if only someone had turned this into a ‘surrealist, satirical, silly marsh of comedy genius’ (Varsity)”, then this is the show for you!

This surrealist parody of all children’s literature was awarded the sought after ’Highly Recommended’ rating by FringeReview in 2016 (also - ‘tremendously funny’ [ScotsGay] and ***** [Varsity]).
