Quirky, Great singing

See it if You want to see robots singing along to banjo and other feel-good instruments and doing some modern dance

Don't see it if You have to understand why a show works. It's about today? 100 years ago? Well, it works though.

Dreamy, Quirky, Indulgent, Meandering, Original

See it if You like charming original songs delivered by a spirited company who haven't really worked out the transitions or a plot yet

Don't see it if You're looking for a solid, well-delivered plot or earnestness makes you roll your eyes.

"The combination of science fiction alongside folk music does not seem immediately complementary. But this is where the brilliance of this piece comes...Not only are the songs well-written and performed, but they are woven so beautifully into the fabric of the play that the piece takes on an elegance not usually associated with Fringe shows...Under Davis’ direction and the fine cast, the tone is consistently hopeful and honest."

“If you’re interested in the virtues of theatre as a collective experience, ‘Fiction Folk Event’ is too transcendent to miss. With an original story inspired by prevalent science-fiction archetypes, the event is an enlightened escape into a higher realm of consciousness...This show is perfect for children and adults alike! With a cast and creative team so collectively talented, ‘Fiction Folk Event’ becomes an hour of commitment to inspire a lifetime of thought.”
