Charlie Russell Aims To Please

3-27 August, 3.15pm
Pleasance Courtyard (Below)

Written and performed by Charlie Russell

Charlie Russell wants to do a show in Edinburgh, but all she can think about is what she wants people to think of it and ultimately, of her.

So rather than focusing on what she wants to say, she’s just going to create a show that will please absolutely everyone by trying to hit as many solo fringe show tropes and styles as possible within an hour. That’s doable, right?
