The Half

1st Aug 2018 - 26th Aug 2018

Upstairs - Pleasance Courtyard


Suitable for ages 14 and above


A brand-new play from Danielle Ward, writer of cult Fringe shows Take-A-Break Tales, Psister Psycho, Gutted and Dani Frankenstein. Starring Anna Crilly (Succession, Lead Balloon). Thirty minutes before curtain up, a double act meet for the first time in over a decade, but whatever happened to cause such a rift? Ambition, friendship, motherhood, ageing and mice are all explored in this tragicomedy.

'The resulting hour of comedy is wonderfully thought-provoking, with the kind of finely crafted writing that you'd expect from a Radio 4 regular' (Guardian).

'The peerless Anna Crilly' (Stage).

Cast also includes Margaret Cabourn-Smith (Miranda, Motherland, Catastrophe)

“Cabourn-Smith’s performance is remarkable… she becomes the beating heart of the play” Reviewshub
