Press coverage

Full press release

Fresh from their sold out residency at the Leicester Square Theatre, last year's underground hit Four Screws Loose return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in the Assembly Bosco Tent with their hotly anticipated brand new show #screwtheworld.

Four Screws Loose are set to make their mark on this year's Fringe with their wildly exuberant, pop-culture obsessed silliness, juxtaposed with old school farce and ingenious musical mash-ups, creating the perfect party atmosphere with an interactive element. With musical direction from Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer the Opera), this is an all singing, all dancing sketch show like no other.

Four Screws Loose - comprised of Richard David-Caine, Joseph Elliott, Thomas Ford and Conan House - formed in 2009 and have since thrilled audiences up and down the country. They made their Edinburgh debut with Latecomers Will Be Shot! at the Free Fringe in 2010, playing to full houses on every performance, and repeated the same critical and audience response at 2011's Free Fringe Festival with their highly anticipated follow-up show Screwed Over Again! The success of this show led to a three week hit London transfer at the Warehouse Theatre, Croydon and The Screws are now developing two projects for screen.
