'Darkly humorous' Sara Barron and the 'gloriously silly' investigative duo Great British Mysteries perform brand new material before they hit the Edinburgh Fringe.

Sara Barron: For Worse

When Sara Barron was 12-years-old she wrote a 64-page play. 60 of those pages were, in effect a porn. Which is to say: there exists in this world a porn script written by an accidental, feminist 12-year-old *auteur*.

As it happens, Sara's not 12 anymore. She's 38. And through her own mix of standup and storytelling, she's ready - FINALLY - to get her play up on its filthy little feet."The reigning queen of New York's live storytelling scene" - Jon Ronson

"Barron is, dare we say it, as funny as David Sedaris. When you aren't squirming, you're laughing out loud" - Los Angeles Times

"Rib-tickling... relentlessly self-deprecating" - Chicago Sun Times

"Barron makes for great company." Entertainment Weekly Magazine

"Darkly humorous; smart; acerbic" - Bust Magazine

Great British Mysteries: 1599?

Do you like mysteries? Do you like historical inaccuracies? Do you know the difference between Thomas More and Roger Moore? Read on!

This is the follow-up to the company’s sold out 2017 Edinburgh show. But set 400 years earlier. Confused? You will be.

In this edition, mystery-hunters Olive and Teddy become embroiled with witches, haunted houses, and the scent of Cardinal Wolsey’s conscience. It’s like ‘The Woman In Black’ meets Keystage Two Tudor history.

Expect multi-roling, homemade sound effects and more gags than Henry VIII had wives. Seven?
