Terrible Wonderful Adaptations
This show is from a previous year's festival
Following a surprising (and culturally deeply unsettling) sell-out late-night smash-hit ruin* at the Edinburgh fringe, this mindbogglingly awful (and disquietingly successful) idea for a late night-comedy extravaganza face-plants into Machynlleth. JLR wrangles an all-star cast of the best comedians and worst idiots into creating a never-before-seen adaptation of an unadaptable text.
Previous catastrophic attempts include Francis Fukuyama’s discredited political treatise The End of History, post-structuralist Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse, the iTunes Terms and Conditions, Ulysses & Á la Recherche du Temps Perdu. Mach Festivals treat will be revealed on the night.
*This is a typo for “ruin” but has been kept for posterity.
