Edinburgh Preview: Great British Mysteries & Maisie Adam
Great British Mysteries: 1599?
Do you like mysteries? Do you like historical inaccuracies? Do you know the difference between Thomas More and Roger Moore? Read on!
This is the follow-up to the company’s sold out 2017 Edinburgh show. But set four hundred years earlier. Confused? You will be.
In this edition, mystery-hunters Olive and Teddy become embroiled with witches, haunted houses, and the scent of Cardinal Wolsey’s conscience. It’s like The Woman In Black meets Keystage Two Tudor history.
Expect multi-roling, homemade sound effects and more gags than Henry VIII had wives. Seven?

Maisie Adam: Vague
Eighteen months ago, Maisie decided to try stand-up comedy. Within a year, she won the biggest stand-up comedy newcomer competition (becoming the fourth woman to have done so in its 30 years), opened for major comedians, and claimed a Best New Comedy nomination at Brighton Fringe. In her debut, the northerner and self-confessed Slave to the Sesh relays her experiences of navigating the recklessness of youth whilst dealing with a medical condition that requires you to be a “Sensible Susan”.
