EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE 2020
Assembly George Square Studios
George Square , Edinburgh
A fast-paced, comic fantasia by two-time Fringe First winner Brian Parks. When an ordinary guy sneaks away from his office to play golf, he’s struck by a lightning blast on the first tee and thrust into a surreal world of hard-nosed detectives, talking golf clubs, and the Wife of Bath. Directed by Fringe First winner Margarett Perry.
“A gleefully out-there dark comedy”
– Time Out New York
“No American writer is more thoughtful – in an explosive and comic way”
"Director Margarett Perry whips up Parks' The House to a ferocious pace.”
– Ithaca Times
“The Golfer might be a sly commentary on the impending end-times. Or a demonstration of how the human brain short-circuits when its owner spends too much time in front of a TV or computer screen. Or, like the singing gonads in its early moments, it could just be nuts. I won’t spoil the fun by giving away the ending, but only say that, especially for those overeducated, buttoned-up folks who languish in cubicles, it’s a much-needed antidote.”
-The Village Voice
Here's hoping the Festival Happens!
