“Deliberately and thoroughly crafted by the gods of comedy.” ThreeWeeks, 2014
After five sell-out years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, critically acclaimed improvised comedy quintet Racing Minds are bringing their 50s-style radio play to Perth.
Armed with only your suggestions, the twinkly fingers of a virtuoso musician, and a suitcase full of cobbled-together sound effects, four of the UK’s finest improvisers conjure, from nothing, an hour of suspense, intrigue, horror and humour.
Old-fashioned microphones, sharp suits, greased hair… all the hallmarks of classic radio adventures with one unique twist: this time the audience is in charge.
Featuring off-the-cuff breaking-news broadcasts, shameless plugging of sponsors’ shoddy wares and toe-tapping audience inspired songs, every performance is completely different and unique.
Each show is taped and released as a free podcast on iTunes, and to over 500,000 SoundCloud followers.
Come and experience the excitement of a live recording, where you write the script.
10 – 14 February // 9.00pm // The Blue Room Theatre
17 – 21 February // 9.30pm // The Blue Room Theatre
Origin: United Kingdom // Company: Racing Minds
Featuring: Chris Turner, Daniel Roberts, Tom Skelton, Dylan Townley & Dougie Walker
