We enjoyed @SpecSciShow at #Fringe2019: expect nice jokes, explosions, and interesting experiments. It's a nice way to introduce kids to STEM. Hopefully more next year!

Congratulations @zeroko_jp for a joyful and delightful show ("Zeroko's tea time") at #Fringe2019. It was one of our favourites from this year's fringe. Looking forward to next year!

Congratulations @Maydays for your excellent show "Happily Never After"! It was a beautiful showcase of all the craft in improv: witty, chivalrous, and hilarious. The songs were so well done that it was hard to believe they were improvised! #Fringe2019

Yesterday, in #ImprovActually: Agatha is a candlemaker who enjoys setting fires. Elizabeth works in a match-factory but dreams of being a librarian.
The 1st date goes wrong and Agatha burns the restaurant: will they be able to recover, or are Liz's books fuel for Agatha's fire?

Our last show of #EdFringe19!
We'd love to welcome everybody to "Improv Actually": an improvised rom-com.
