Best of Edinburgh - Insomnobabble

We arrived home from the Edinburgh fringe, having seen the best show of all on Thursday. Insomnobabble is a speedily surreal and hilarious trip through the mind of an insomniac - Keith (played by Matt Rutter). Along the way he meets a host of other charcters (all played by the brilliant Tim Lynskey) and the lines between reality and dream become increasingly blurred. This a brilliant mindbender of a play and is well worth seeing if you get the chance.

This was definitely my favourite show of the week, closely followed by Family Semianyki, who I mentioned in my previous post. Third place would have to go to Floating by Hoi Polloi, a fantastical tale of how the Island of Anglesey floated away into the Atalntic ocean, told by a character called Hugh Hughes. An imaginativea and funny show.
