The Edinburgh Fringe One-Weeker 2017 – Shakespeare for Breakfast, 20th August 2017

Shakespeare for BreakfastI thought I’d make our earliest start of the week on the first morning whilst we were still not that tired – and it’s something we’re really looking forward to, Shakespeare for Breakfast, at C Venues – C on Chambers Street, at 10:00 on Sunday 20th. Here’s the official description: “The Bardic Breakfasters are back! C’s sensational Shakespearience returns for its 26th sell-out year, with free coffee and croissants! A pleasing plethora of pentameter, puns and pastry. Perfect for hardened Bard fans, blank verse virgins and those just after some quality fun over freshly-brewed coffee and freshly-baked croissants. ‘A bouncy and boisterous take on Willie’s work’ (List). ‘Well worth getting out of bed for’ (Independent). ‘No holds Bard’ ( ‘Irreverent humour… clever’ (Stage). ‘Side-splitting… glorious’ ( ‘Full of fun’ ( ‘Sizzling’ (Scottish Daily Express). Free coffee and croissants! Book early.”

Last year we saw them slaughter A Midsummer Night’s Dream and it was just sensational. Not sure which play is getting the croissant treatment this year but it’s bound to be hilarious. Check back shortly after 11am to see just how funny it was. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.

What can I say, as brilliant as ever! This year it was Macbe… I mean Gary, it’s unlucky to say Macbeth, ah no….. Five such likeable and funny performers giving it everything, and a really funny parody of the Shakespeare Play set in the cut throat world of the allotments of Thistly Bottom. Absolutely loved it, and a sell out as usual. A must see!
