First Fringe winning duo Andy Gray and Grant Stott are back this year with a comedic masterpiece written by Phil Differ. Double Feature is a story about two childhood friends, Micky and Davy, who are delighted to find themselves with the job of clearing out their local cinema, which was a favourite of theirs when they were children. But as they reminisce on the old times, the whole story takes a serious turn as a twist in their life is discovered.
This fantastic show gives the audience a melancholy sense of how films make us feel, how they make us ask the right questions and how they are more than just entertainment, but instead rather educational and full of dreams. Directed by Ryan Dewar, this show is comedic gold. From the beginning, both performers have great energy and bring their lovable characters to life. Their chemistry is undeniable as they recreate small snippets from films, complete with amazingly accurate impersonations and the use of perfectly timed sound and lighting which bring the magic of the movies to the stage.
Movie buffs looking for an hour of laughs should make sure that Double Feature is at the top of your list this Fringe.
