Next to last Fringe-For-All 2 act –
“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…)
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.
