One of the most satisfying aspects of the largest arts festival in Europe is that it promotes an abundance of new and raw talent. The Fringe has always made welcome those who have a dream and the energy and conviction to make it a reality. Shows need not be big in budget or in a specific genre as so long as there is passion and creativity there will be an audience worthy of its attention.
One such production is Mammy ,a play which combines drama with quick wit, physical comedy and a even a spot of tap dancing. The story, performed by an all female cast, is of Mammy, who after providing for her four, now grown, daughters is seeking a new role in life – that of a woman in love.
Her daughters, however, each with wildly different but equally captivating personalities discourage and mock her attempts to find love on dating websites – preferring her to stay in the role of put-upon mum.
The close-knit team has worked hard to bring this story to life and it has paid off for them with the audience thoroughly enjoying the energy and the quick wit of the cast. Their friendliness endeared them to their audience making their attempts at audience participation work effortlessly.
Particular mention is given to Anna Devitt, a Scoty Finalist in 2009 and Lee Mack All Star Cast Crown Owner who got the party started with the best of Glaswegian banter and wound up the production leaving audience members smiling at the memories. This may be their debut show at The Fringe but it is unlikely to be their last.
For a free show you don’t get more rawer than this. This is what the fringe is all about. Getting up there and entertaining and that’s what you get! Great story, great ensemble and great individual performances! Only thing that let this down was the venue but that’s not their fault! Go and see this if you want a giggle and experience a true fringe experience!!!
Having given up a paid show to see this, all we can say is, thank f**k we did! Absolutely hilarious! Highly recommended. In fact would rather have paid for that than most shows we’ve seen. Genius!
Fantastic show girls, travelled through from Glasgow and didnt know what to do but the fab girls invited us in and so so glad we went. Please go see this if you can Glasgow humour at its best. funny funny funny.
These girls really know how to play an audience. Characters well observed and confidently played. V funny, catch it while its free!!
All together ace
Fun, funny and rather fab – the hour fair flew by. Well worth checking out
Looking for a free show better than all the rest? (and including most paid for ones) this is it. Clever, funny and created by a talented bunch of girls! Well conceived for women (sorry.. i know you’re only young!) of such a young age and insightful… and as for their standup/ improv talents.. what can I say! Well deserved pat on the back! Highly recommended!!
