Sylvester McCoy appearing in the Edinburgh Fringe Can't Post

As we mentioned on our Facebook page last week, Sylvester McCoy is currently appearing (along side fellow geek-favourite Robert Picardo, of Star Trek: Voyager fame), in a play in the Edinburgh Fringe. Dan Freeman's comedy A Joke stars McCoy and Picardo, along with Richard Oliver - and is a brilliant piece of absurdist comedy and meta-theatricality. Cleverly written, the play is performed in the round (or square, to be more accurate), and plays with and subverts the expectations of humour.

Freeman's piece is startlingly good, as are the three players. Packed with delightful, laugh out loud moments, as well as thought-provoking writing, this is definitely one to see. If you're in Scotland, you have until Saturday 26th August to catch it. If you're not in the area, well, perhaps you can help to bring the play to other venues; or help to support a filmed version of the show. Check out details on Freeman's website, here.

You can read All Edinburgh Theatre's review of the show here; and full details on how to get tickets are here. TORn's greendragon saw the show last week and was absolutely charmed by it; do see it if you can!
