Caws & Effect
[Mind of a Snail Puppet Co.]
Large-scale shadow theatre from a bird's-eye view. Crows are re-dreaming the world. Is the future all it's cracked up to be? This modern fable is told using handmade layered projections, puppetry, masks and an original musical score. Mind of a Snail's large-scale shadow puppetry is quirky, colourful and beautiful, like early animation performed live before your eyes. The critics are RAVEN!

See No Evil
[Looking Glass Productions]
Montreal, 1966: After enjoying an evening celebrating their first anniversary with friends, psychiatrist Russell Partridge informs his wife, Mary, that within 48 hours, he plans to murder her as he's murdered seven times before. Or does he? Is Russell a serial killer or is it all in Mary's mind? Marc A. Moir (Padre X, The Hunting Party) brings this radio adaptation of his stage play See No Evil to the Fringe. Full of charm and chills in equal measure, See No Evil is a must see.
Sound & Fury's Cyranose
[Sound & Fury]
Fringe favourites S&F bring back their Fringe award-winning hit show: the classic tale of Cyranose de Bivouac's perfectly normal love for his cousin Roxanne. 5 STARS "This musical parody is a vaudevillian treat performed at lightning pace and with rapier-like wit. Cyranose is a deliciously silly play, a song-and-dance treat, and a Fringe highlight." - Fest Magazine (Edinburgh)
