With a mixture of the innocent wit of Twain’s ‘Diary Of Adam And Eve’, of ‘Family Guy’ Baby Stewie’s brainstorming to overthrow the world, and of ‘Tom and Jerry’-like funny, cruel violence, the two troubled toddlers eventually come round.

.....and have been for days...well, nearly a week now...and no blog!!!
Terrible of us, but we've been working incredibly hard to get Pinch in Love off the ground...and performed to perfection!
What can we say; its been a very wet week...either through flyering in the down-pouring rains or through sheer blood sweat and tears in rehearsals there has been an air of moistness in The Deck Camp. It hasn't dampened our spirits though...we're at the greatest arts and culture festival in the world....how could it!?
Most of our days have been split into a mixture of business. We've been rehearsing for 6 hours daily, flyering for around four and catching shows where possible.
We've done a bit of comedy, crap and good. We've done The Boy With Tape on his Face (and now I have done I feel that it doesn't matter if I see nothing else this year) @tapefaceboy for those who want to follow.
I have seen a great performance of new writing (Dating George Orwell) from an old friend, @cockneykel, who is in one of the free fringe venues, Laughing Horse at the White Horse, and she was quite brilliant. I left her gig feeling very proud, which is odd, as I have had no influence over her performance, but still feeling proud indeed!
There have also been a couple of stand-up shows that we've seen...the better of the two being Hunt and Anderson a female comedy duo who even anaged to get our Techie Paul up in a very funny King Henry VIII sketch...he was supposed to be the french on but sounds a bit more like Borat...take a look at the Video clip...
We have now settled in with one preview and the first night performance done. Both performances left the audience delighted, and giggling all the way through which has made us all super charged with energy and today we will be hitting Edinburgh Town with all we can....and today is the first day we'll be sending Pinch out to kill his teddy.
If you find the teddy and rescue him before Pinch kills him you will be in for a lovely scrummy free ticket to the show! Fun fun fun! We highly recommend that you keep an eye out for the Teddy and for Pinch...who knows you may get the Teddy Hero Award at the end of the festival!
It's the last day for two for one tickets...we're going at there and grabbing the audiences today...its such a great piece of theatre, we reckon you should take a chance on at £3.50. BARGAIN! BARGAIN! BARGAIN!
Amy playing Baby and I will be going to see Mrs Marchbank at the Vault this morning - we get free reciprocal tickets if they're available, and then we'll be up on the mile flyering like crazy! All the other cast will be joining us. It is a bright blue sky this evening which we are hoping is not a big fat weather con...as we'll be sending them out in costume today...keeping our fingers crossed they don't get wet for the show.
Pinch in Love is touring to Edinburgh Fringe, following last years success at Camden Fringe! We got 4 star reviews and we're really excited to be taking the show on a 3 week run to Edinburgh. The Deck Theatre Company is delighted to announce our cast for Edfringe 2012.
Let me introduce you to:
