Festival favourites Michelle Brasier (Mad As Hell, Aunty Donna) and Laura Frew (Fringe Wives Club) present their coming of age story in three parts. Like the Harry Potter play but with crabs. The return season to return all seasons. 

Double Denim (Thu), Adventure Show (Fri) and A Very Fancy Dinner Party (Sat) were designed as a trilogy. If you missed one over the years it’s your chance to see that one. If you didn’t, do yourself a favour and watch them in order 'cos we have been hiding Easter eggs in these bad boys for years. There is a disgustingly theatre school through line in these little silly plays and we’d love you to come watch and go “Oh wow did they go to NIDA?” No. We didn’t get in. All these shows have sold out seasons so we got a bigger room. Don’t make us look like (tryp)dicks.
