GUIDO! (Edinburgh Fringe) Press Announcement 2013

It's 1605 and the Catholics are not happy. The oppressive rule of King James I has left them hungry for rebellion and they need a figurehead to lead them out of the pub and onwards to freedom. Guido Fawkes is the man they have been waiting for: he just doesn't know it yet!

Guido! is written by Daniel Henry Kaes and composed by David Ferris. Directed  by Midlands-born Cambridge University student Matt Lim, the show premiered at the ADC Theatre in June 2012. A privilege to launch during the final academic week - May Week - the show received an enthusiastic response. The show has been revised for the Fringe and represents the original writing of the Cambridge students in a musical comedy adventure. The production brings together life events and characters from a notorious era in English history in a mock-epic as grand as Pirates of The Caribbean with the musical theatre attitude of Jerry Springer: The Opera

Guido! transfers from Cambridge to the C Too Main House at this years Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is likely to be one of the most fun, ridiculous and brilliantly playful shows you will see at the year's Fringe.

1 - 26 August 2013 at 15:50 daily.
