Fringe 2015

EdFringe Review ****

“confident, engaging comedy”

“A vibrant, fast-paced show that couldn’t fail to bring a smile to the faces of everyone in the room.”

Broadway Baby ****

“They will take any suggestion and run with it, skillfully spinning out bizarre ideas into sparky dialogue and – sometimes inspired, sometimes horrendous, always funny – puns.”

“A dynamic, surprising and hilarious hour from a very promising and talented bunch.”

Younger Theatre

“hilarious from start to finish, and brilliantly intimate”

Fringe Guru ***

“Blind Mirth offer some hearty laughs, bags of energy, good value and a great deal of potential among the group.”

“They displayed a maturity and depth that was surprising for a group of people who were still in their twenties and thirties[?!].”
“certainly have a bright future ahead of them”
“Their ingenuity and vibrancy is infectious… and if you see them, you’ll catch the bug.”

We were also honoured to receive the Malcolm Edwards Award for Drama; one of the two highly-coveted prizes given to St Andrews students for their contribution to the performing arts.
