Full press release

Big Bold Theatre returns to the stage with Feydeau's farce One Month Early.

Leonie's baby is arriving early but her husband seems more concerned with his dinner. What could go wrong? With unexpected arrivals and encounters adding to the chaos, don't miss your chance to see Feydeau's hilarious one act farce. Big Bold Theatre returns to the stage with their first Edinburgh Festival Fringe production. Including a cast littered with Drama Centre London students, this show is packed full of side-splitting, slapstick comedy and is one that should not be missed!

This hilarious one-act farce is rarely performed and this will be the third known production in the UK and its Scottish premiere. James Shelton-Smith's interpretation is new, exciting and fresh. Shelton-Smith says "Ever since I saw A Flea In Her Ear at the Old Vic I have always wanted to do a Feydeau farce and saw this as the perfect opportunity".

The cast is made up of recent Drama Centre London students from across the globe (UK, France and Oman). Shelton-Smith founded the company in 2009 as a youth theatre producing new plays, charity events and street performances. Whilst studying at the Drama Centre, he decided to expand the aims of Big Bold Theatre to include new and exciting productions as well as giving something back to the community through free workshops and performances.
