The Edinburgh Fringe One-Weeker 2019 – Hitman and Her, 23rd August 2019

Hitman and HerHere’s another play that sounds like it’s a cross between black comedy and searing drama; it’s Stage D’Or’s Hitman and Her, on at Q2, PQA Venues @ Riddles Court, at 17:50 on Friday 23rd. Here’s the blurb: “Following the success at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe with the five-star show After Today, Stage D’Or returns with their latest work from acclaimed playwright Tim Connery. Donna Ryeman’s friend meets a hitman in a pub as she wants her husband dead. He is reluctant to accept, particularly as it seems that Donna Ryeman’s friend may not be ‘all there’ even though she has a certificate to prove her sanity. Will he take the job? What’s with the Post-it Notes? Why is the pub suddenly so empty? And who is having an affair with her husband?”

This is going to be another of those plays that could be absolutely brilliant or fall flat on its ar*e. Time till tell! Check back around 7.15 pm to see how much we enjoyed it, and by then the preview blog for our next show should be available to read too.

Brisk, content-packed, full of surprises, this is a very enjoyable play with two very good performances. It’s not going to change the world but it’s very entertaining!
