Billy Fisher is a young clerk in a gloomy undertaker's office who is bombarded daily by media propaganda that all things are for the asking. This transparently false doctrine, coupled with the humdrum job and his wild imagination, leads him on frequent flights to Ambrosia, a mythical kingdom where he is crowned king, general, lover or any idealised hero the real situation of the moment makes him desire. This modern interpretation of a newly declared classic draws on youthful imagination and live music and makes for a must-see event at this year's Edinburgh Fringe.
