Director: Annie Griffin


Stephen Mangan and Chris O’Dowd star in this Edinburgh ensemble piece, perhaps best encapsulated as ‘Nashville on the Fringe’.

Three ambitious comedians and the star of a one-woman show arrive in Edinburgh hoping to leave their mark on the world’s most famous comedy festival. Annie Griffin’s multi-person narrative follows each of them as their emerging insecurities and delusions rise to the fore... Marshalling an enormous cast, Griffin (best known for her Channel 4 series The Book Group) impressively captures the mind-boggling multifariousness of Edinburgh Festival in this deliciously dark and ingeniously structured comedy.
