Brokentalkers and Adrienne Truscott
THU 15 — SAT 17 JUNE
- 60 minutes, no interval
Comedian-choreographer Adrienne Truscott and Dublin-based performance makers Brokentalkers have tickled Edinburgh Fringe, and the world, with Masterclass. Now it’s slinging its rifle, polishing its loafers and heading for RISING.
The show begins as a playful parody of the tweed-clad cult of male genius. Then things take a turn for the meta in the second act when the satire zooms in on “half-baked male allyship”. All-round good guy Fieldlim Cannon plays a blazer-clad talk show host interviewing a Hemingway-esque writer (Truscott) who's espousing a masterclass on playwriting.
It’s a savage, big-wigged comedy that scuffs the varnish of privilege and power.
