ED2012 Theatre Review: Theatre Tasters – Free (Fronterias Thaetre Lab / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 22 August 2012

A Fringe first for me (and probably most of the audience!): singing happy birthday to one of the actors. This moment fully captured the bubbly, happy nature of this new theatre company. Their focus is on international work, which was reflected in the three new short plays from Australia, Scotland and Norway, each remarkable for its quirky and unusual perspective. My favourite involved a pair of workers in an old people’s home arguing about love, death and sex. Though it was thought-provoking and humorous, the card games and bouncing on trampolines when things got particularly heated were inexplicable. With this hour’s entertainment the company gave just a taste of what they might be capable of.

Laughing Horse @ The Phoenix, 3-12 Aug, 12.00pm.
