Edinburgh University theatre societies deemed not weird enough

BEDLAM THEATRE — The high council of student theatre, which convenes every year in the first week of September to celebrate another month of low ticket sales at the Fringe by having a costumed orgy on the meadows, spent this session condemning Edinburgh University theatre societies for not being weird enough, between passionate breaths.

The motion was brought forward by Bath University Theatre Company, who brought a version of Titus Andronicus to the Fringe which was performed entirely by animals. Edinburgh’s home theatre companies offered a comparatively conservative schedule of plays, including a version of Hamlet set in a dildo factory, a well-received performance of the Glass Menagerie, and the customary really shit, over-sexualised new writing.

Twonkish fringe-goers were also outraged. Some absolute, grade-A thundercunt that Flipside spoke to, who was sporting a flatcap and a scarf in the middle of summer, said “I don’t come to the fringe to see the same sort of production as the normal plebeians. I want to see ‘edgy’ theatre. That’s why I dress like this. I’ve got tickets to tonight’s performance of ‘The Good Person of Szechwan’ by the Durham Players;; during the interval one of the actors stands in the middle of the stage and has a wank for 15 minutes. That’s the sort of stuff I want to see.”

When approached for comment Bedlam Theatre responded by delivering a response by mime. Over the phone.
