A Simple Space- Underbelly

Let me start this review, ladies and gentlemen, that I am an expert theatre goer, normally. I never sit on the end of a row 20 minutes before the curtain because I know that others will inevitably have to squeeze past me; I always slouch in my seat if there’s a little person behind so as not to impede their view; most importantly, I always seem to know where to stand at the bar in order to get served first.

‘Scotch and Soda’ at London Wonderground

It seemed rather fitting that on the day that the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe programme was launched, I toddled off to see a show at the London Wonderground. Situated on the Southbank during the Summer, the London Wonderground and it’s sister, the Underbelly offers Londoners a sneaky peek into the Edfringe spirit, offering an eclectic programme of everything from circus to comedy via a healthy dose of cabaret on the way. The gardens too allow one to steal inside, grab a drink and perch at  ...
