Fringe Quartet

£10.00£20.00

Actresses Sooz, Mags and Teresa meet at an audition, where none of them gets the part; a familiar tale for them all. Frustrated with their lot, they decide to put on a play at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In a series of short, mainly comic scenes, we see how they make ends meet, progress with their acting, and finally persuade would-be playwright Penny to write them a play, one which demonstrates their real acting talent. However, Edinburgh isn’t their only focus, as these women have to deal with ex-husbands, rising debt, finding a venue, finding a job, getting noticed, and real life, which always seems to get in the way of things.

A light comedy for 4 women, Fringe Quartet shows how focus, determination, support and a great sense of humour can bring out the best in us all, in unexpected ways

Synopsis

Actresses Sooz, Mags and Teresa meet at an audition, where none of them gets the part; a familiar tale for them all. Frustrated with their lot, they decide to put on a play at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In a series of short, mainly comic scenes, we see how they make ends meet, progress with their acting, and finally persuade would-be playwright Penny to write them a play, one which demonstrates their real acting talent. However, Edinburgh isn’t their only focus, as these women have to deal with ex-husbands, rising debt, finding a venue, finding a job, getting noticed, and real life, which always seems to get in the way of things.

A light comedy for 4 women, Fringe Quartet shows how focus, determination, support and a great sense of humour can bring out the best in us all, in unexpected ways

Cast

Suzanne (Sooz):   A 44-year-old actress, new-ish to the profession, likes spending money. Married to Mick as the play starts.

Penny (Penny):   A would-be playwright and lover of food, teetering on middle-age and obscurity.
