Until the Ad Break by Maverick Charles Productions.

Adapted from an original comedy play 21 Minutes by Maverick Charles Productions. The company have released the popular fan-favourite scene back to be part of the Online@TheSpace programme which is running until the 30th of August 2020.

With the end of the world insight, this is set to be their final production. Set during the scheduled add break the members of the team decide to let their barriers down. Declarations and honesty are in abundance as the presenters stop following the radio stations protocol and etiquette, thus allowing the thoughts in their heads the freedom to be released onto the unsuspecting wider audience.

It’s not always easy to follow at times which left me feeling that I wasn’t entirely sure what was going on, as the dialogue was hastily delivered sometimes. However, I felt this direction might echo the chaos and anxiety which could easily be evoked should society actually be confronted with the prospect that the world was about to end.

Francine “bassoon of woodwind genitals” is just one of the humorous one-liners that can be heard during the performance. Just listen out though as there is a lot of comedy delivered throughout the performance, although some of it can be rather subtle.

Overall this is one of a selection of the online Fringe productions that is worth taking the time to watch.
