Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016


Punchline’s hit romantic-comedy for the social media age makes its Edinburgh Fringe debut at Greenside Nicholson Square!

Social networking might have brought the world closer together, but now it’s too close for comfort, and it’s still so very… complicated.

A unique take on traditional rom-coms, a talented ensemble cast alternate roles for a fresh interpretation each night. Integrating multimedia technology with live performances, this hilarious romantic-comedy for the digital generation is fantastic, light-hearted and a definite crowd-pleaser!” - WHM

Tickets: (15-27th August (not 21st) at 19:35)

Punchline Theatre take on the Edinburgh Fringe with brand-new and hilarious parody update of one of the most beloved series in television history, with a healthy kick of 90s-based nostalgia.

Under the guidance of floating-head thing Zordon (Ewen Macintosh, The Office UK), everyone's favourite and most ethnically diverse supergroup the Power Rangeurs must put aside their differences and save the day, whilst also setting a great example for the kids (not particularly a kids show).

From the team behind WAY BACK (***** - Three Weeks), 2 COMPLICATED, (***** - Broadway Baby) and the critically acclaimed historical musical trilogy (GUIDO, JACK & I and MATA HARI), Punchline Theatre are “the new masters of parody (Edcringe.com) and “one of the most exciting and creative emerging companies in recent years” (The Theatre Blog).

This show is part of the Pay What You Want model at C Venues, or you can make certain of tickets by pre-booking!

We are also previewing the show with two dates in Henley at Badegmore Primary School at the end of July. Tickets available here:

Henley Fringe (22-23rd July 2016 at 19:30)

Edinburgh Fringe (17-29th August at 17:00)
