Paul Foxcroft (Cariad & Paul; Drifters, E4; professional liar) and Briony Redman (Radio 4 Writer; Farce Noir; Buffy wannabe) are a double act with more sketches than you can shake a stick at. But why would you shake a stick at sketches? Sketches aren't a dog. Though if we had a dog, we'd call it Sketches. 'A vibrant, articulate sense of mischief... Inventive, scrappy, proper Fringe fun' (Times). 'A delightful romp with universal charm and wit... nerdy without being exclusive' **** (EdFestMag.com). Directed by David Reed (BBC's It's Kevin; The Penny Dreadfuls).
