Edinburgh Fringe review: Falling down the wormhole with BRUCE

BRUCE (Jamie Breen)
BRUCE (Jamie Breen)

EACH year, the Edinburgh Fringe serves up no end of weird and wonderful shows.

And BRUCE, a show that revolves using yellow sponges as puppets, is no exception.

BRUCE (Jamie Breen)

With a non-chronological plot that plays around with time, space, science and accents, this is a show that just shouldn’t work.

But it does, it really does.

Part of the reason the show comes together so brilliantly is the boundlessly energetic performance of the two Australian actors who take the audience on an adventure through time and space.

BRUCE with a mini BRUCE (Jamie Breen)

Within minutes of settling into your seat you find yourself suddenly caring about these characters who have been crafted out of yellow rectangle sponges, and the puppetry, movement and voice skills make it surprisingly easy to suspend disbelief and get swept away by the fantastical on-stage action.

Verdict ****

A beautifully odd show that’s what the Edinburgh Fringe is all about – something you might otherwise never see that’s packed to the brim with talent, creativity and comedy.

It’s the show you never knew you needed to see.
