Sat 14 Oct, Room Upstairs comedy, drama
Weaving Wodehousian witticisms, farce and highly quotable one-liners into a pair of intriguing 1930s one-man whodunits, award-winning writer-performer Tom Taylor’s rakish aristocrat and first-time detective, Charlie Montague, must prevent a murder. The chap dies.
Not put off in the slightest, Charlie attends the opening of a new art exhibition where he is presented with a double-threat: murder and modern art. He is equally baffled by both.
Packed with nonstop laughs from start to finish and a revolving gallery of high society dames and eccentric waiters – all played by Taylor – The Game’s a Foot, Try the Fish was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Festival where it performed a three-week sell-out run and collected a host of four- and five-star reviews.
