What Would Spock Do? Review


Gilded Balloon (Venue 14)| Aug 24-­31|12:30| £10.00-£11.00 

Absolutely amazing, a must see. New comedy debuting at this years Fringe about love, Star Trek and learning to accept who you are. From Writer and Director Jon Brittan and staring Sam Donnelly this homage to all things Star Trek will have you laughing in no time.

With a Star Trek Two: Wrath of Khan poster hanging centrally on stage, a large cardboard cut-out of Leonard Nimoy plus “Star Trekking” playing loudly in the background, you are left in no doubt that Star Trek is central to the show.

This one man performance is not only a homage to all things Star Trek but also a well told romantic comedy that tackles bullying, geekish fandom and staying true to yourself.

Donnelly draws you into his one man act playing Garry a closet Star Trek fan. Navigating the complicated world of the office, with his beer drinking football loving “normal” mates. Then the new good looking temp Keira arrives complete with Star Trek badge and Mr Spock haircut and everything starts to change.

With moments of painful honesty combined with humour, wit and incredible comic timing. This show will take you on a journey boldly going where no man has gone before.   

What Would Spock Do? Gilded Balloon (Venue 14) between the 5th-31st  August. At 12:30 Find out more and get tickets here.
