'BRITNEY' headed to Edinburgh International Fringe Festival
This new work by founder Charly Clive and British It Girl Ellen Roberts will premiere at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival.
Britney is the true story of what happens to two best friends when one of them gets a brain tumour.
It’s told in the way we rationalised it to each other, with a host of characters including: a stuffed dog and talented impressionist, a laddie anaesthetist, some Hollywood Producers, Rubeus Hagrid, the population of a small Welsh town, the two best friends in question (us) and the all-important star of the show: Britney the brain tumour, not wildly dissimilar to Britney Spears in the breakdown years. Hilarious, poignant and touching, this show is an uplifting reminder that laughter is sometimes the best medicine.* It’s about how often the funniest stuff happens at the worst of times.
Britney is a sketch-style cum cabaret cum play cum comedy cum one cum all cum to the show. It’s about how often the funniest stuff happens at the worst of times. A show with a lot of heart, and a brain tumour.
