On 4th August, six members of the UVI (Year 13) accompanied by their director, Mrs Cochran-Patrick and producer Miss Dickinson arrived in the beautiful city of Edinburgh to perform Mobile Phone Show by Jim Cartwright at Space on the Mile for five days.

Despite some rather typical Edinburgh weather, the cast donned their mobile phone costumes and handed out flyers on the Mile every morning prior to the performance which certainly paid off as attendance this year was the best to date. The play was well received and the cast worked very hard to produce a witty and sometimes, poignant production of which they should be very proud. They even managed to get the audience participating by sending in texts of anonymous ‘confessions’.

The rest of the free time was spent seeing a wide and wonderful variety of all genres of theatre, musical, stand up and circus, whilst generally enjoying all that the Fringe has to offer. Here are some of the audience reviews we enjoyed:

'Fab show. Great script - very poignant in this day and age…serious undertone brought hilariously and brilliantly to life through amazing direction, great sound effects and wonderful acting….'

'It was a very good show. The actresses were very talented and the direction was extremely slick. Absolutely incredible!...'

'Loved the show. Very apt in today’s world.'

We will be performing our Edinburgh show in The Delscey Burns Theatre at St Mary's Calne on Thursday 12th September at 7pm for any parents or relatives who may wish to attend.
