Babolin

SUMMARY

“…a young company with breathtaking potential who delight in defying limitation…” 
The Scotsman 2009 ****

Babolin take you into the rough and ragged dreams of ten unstoppable young women who hike, camp, dance and yodel their way to the top of the world. We meet them just at that stage in life when adulthood yawns beneath your feet like a vast abyss. With farcical hilarity, cross-dressing, quick-fire changes and a host of ludicrous characters, they find themselves pursued from within each other’s stories across a mythical landscape rife with danger.

Blending lyricism and huge silliness in their trademark knockabout style, Babolin take a quirky look at that stage in life when adulthood yawns beneath your feet like a vast abyss. Will they cling to the rock or will they plunge?

Writer/co-director Richard Fredman has penned 6 productions for the Fringe over the past 10 years. This year, Managerie Theatre Company are also staging his play 'Four for Jericho' at the Pleasance Courtyard. Fredman is known for his witty, lyrical ensemble writing and for creating exceptional, professional work with young theatre makers.


“This new play from Richard Fredman is a crisply written joy that reeks of 18th-century London”
**** The Scotsman (‘The Night Before Larry was Stretched,’ 2006)
