News: The History of the Vibrator, Buzz, works its way back to Edinburgh Fringe

Back by popular demand, Buzz is a hilarious musical journey through the history of the vibrator and a brutally honest story of a singleton’s quest to fall back in love with herself. Think Bridget Jones meets The Book of Mormon… Sex Ed just got a revamp.

Buzz is a feminist production proudly celebrating women’s independence and sexuality. This is not your average musical. With a cast of seven, Fat Rascal Theatre transports the audience from the cave women of the Stone Age to Victorian London’s Hysteria Pandemic, from Cleopatra’s Egypt to the Land Girls of World War II. Buzz is a fun approach to feminism, a comedy with a message aiming to liberate young women and open up conversation about taboo subjects. After a year of performances at venues including York Theatre Royal, Sheffield’s Theatre Delicatessen and Brighton Fringe, Fat Rascal Theatre are thrilled to bring Buzz back to Edinburgh before it heads to The Lowry, Salford.

Fat Rascal Theatre is an award-winning theatre company, and currently part of the New Diorama Graduate Emerging Companies scheme. They are young, bold and cheeky, exploring taboo subjects with a cup of Yorkshire Tea in hand. They discuss social and political issues through an accessible and appealing format to engage a wider audience. They want to create incredibly entertaining, dynamic and gripping theatre which people are going to want to see for fun, and want them to leave having had a great time but also feeling ready to take on the world. They believe that theatre should always aim to inspire, educate or liberate and should be available to everybody.

The cast of Buzz consists of Allie Munro, George Lock, Rosie Raven, Katie Wells, Jamie Mawson, Andrew Dillon and Robyn Grant. Book and lyrics are by Robyn Grant, music by James Ringer-Beck direction by Cat Robey and choreography by Matthew Ives.

 

Buzz plays Pleasance Courtyard from 2 – 28 August 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
