100-Word Fringe(ish): “Betwixt!” at Trafalgar Studios, London

London-based Betwixt! has so many elements in common with your average Fringe show – a young cast, self-referential story-telling, and a budgetary scope that relies on the (very effective) power of imagination. Benedict Salter’s Bailey is a struggling writer who – after meeting sassy gay Cooper and bodyless belle Miranda – must rescue a magical land. Some of the song choices are trite, and the magical characters – particularly Little Shop Of Horrors alumnus Ellen Greene – could use more self-parody, but the central trio wring so much from their intertwined relationship that the endless laughs smoothe over any cracks.

Betwixt! is playing at Trafalgar Studios in London, and has been extended until September 10th.

Tickets: £25 (£20)
