Next to last Fringe-For-All 2 act –

Hey, I’m Talking Murder Here

“Three twisted tales of revenge and murder set in an unexpected future and featuring a bewildered clone, homicidal robot and a couple of talking dogs. Rod Serling, eat you heart out!”

(As you might imagine, I’m partial to talking dogs in the Fringe this year…)

Single White Fringe Geek (and Mom) is the blog of Matthew A. Everett, one of five bloggers covering the Minnesota Fringe Festival for the Daily Planet.

I’ve written elsewhere in this blog about Rhino Productions – they’re a returning favorite from past Fringe blogging Top 10 lists. Check that for the overview.

Nice bunch in the cast (details I didn’t have before) – Samuel Ahern, Celia Forrest, Kara Greshwalk, Trevor Hartman

This was a good solid comedy snippet – a man being interrogated by a doctor (or is he?) about a murder the man committed (or did he?) They dove into the absurdity of the material with gusto and got out on the yellow light. Couldn’t ask for a smoother preview than that. And the YouTube clip is now up on the Fringe’s channel.
