Critically acclaimed sketch-storytellers The Beta Males return to Edinburgh after two sell-out Fringe runs. The Space Race is the secret history of the British Space Programme... and why you've never heard of it. Professor Brian Brilliance vows Blighty will get to The Moon before the Americans and Soviets if it kills him. Or them. Or everyone else. A sketch-comedy blasting off in T-minus... 1969.

The Beta Males are writer-performers John Henry Falle, Jon Gracey, Guy Kelly and Richard Soames and writers Adam Blampied and Tom Clarke, directed by Robert Pirouet, ably assisted by SFX wizard, Tom Burgess. They have their roots in the island of Jersey and formed when they realised making each other laugh was easier than talking to girls.
