ED2012 Theatre Review: Unplugged (Fine Chisel)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

Absolutely charming and bound to make you want to sing along and dance, Fine Chisel presents a dazzling array of theatre and music to immerse you into a fantastically enjoyable experience. Taking place at an open mic night at the legendary ‘Bag o’ Nails’ pub, tensions rise as neurotic landlord Paul isn’t in the mood for fun. Audience interaction seems amazingly natural, due to the bar setting, which adds to the convincing nature of the experience as the actors and talented musicians encourage foot stomping, sing-alongs and a song about a goldfish. Even the chaos of running a pub seems authentic, as a range of characters burst in at any moment to join in with the folk infused festivities…

Zoo Southside, 6-27 Aug, 5.45pm.
