Making the Move

Yesterday I had a rare midweek day off and decided to be a tourist in my own city.  With a friend, we decided to do the Fringe like "normal" people and wandered around to see what we could find.  What we came across in the middle of the day was a play called Making the Move.

It was remarkable in that it was only 20 minutes long!  The concept was simple but clever.  Four actors sat on a sofa and between them there were three dialogues going on all about how the middle couple would achieve their first kiss.  As the dialogue moved back and forwards in time and location (all in the space of 20 minutes, you understand!), the teenage worries about The First Kiss were discussed and tried and debated.

It was a very clever little piece - like a snapshot into a teenage mind, but with some funny one liners and some good acting.  Surprisingly good and if you want to do a quick Fringe lunchtime show, you could get a bus/taxi/walk from town, see it and still be back at the office within the hour!

It is only on until 17 August and costs just £2
