My show Richard Soames: Let's Make A Movie was at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. Every day we made an actual movie with the audience and people had these things to say:

“An original show that kept us laughing throughout and a little astounded at the end” – VoiceMag

“an endlessly enjoyable hour” – The List

“a thoroughly imaginative show...with an endearing heart to it, this show will have you laughing” - FringeGuru

“You will laugh, you will cry. Just like in a good film!” - Darkchat
