Although we as a planet have always been aware of our waste output, in recent years the crippling truth and responsibility have become a reality for individuals. Consumers are becoming more educated about what products are made from and their impacts. In the media we are quick to highlight the high quantity of plastic items used at home, single-use plastic packaging in stores and the waste produced by fast fashion.

After seeing The Remarkables when it first debuted in March, I was intrigued to see how co-writers Matt Smith and Sean Wareing had edited their original musical to make it Fringe-ready. With a few script cuts and new songs, I was impressed to see the changes made while retaining the show’s hilarity and ridiculousness. With an incredibly witty cast and creative team, The Remarkables remains a thoroughly enjoyable and strikingly professional student-written musical.   Continue reading Review: Fringe Preview-Shotgun Theatre’s ‘The Remarkables’

When Professors Shelley and Cavendish build ‘Adam’, their first artificially created man, they stumble upon student Mary to test the extent of his humanity, and whether such machines can possess a soul. Through their unexpected friendship, Adam begins to show flaws that align with all the naturally “broken” parts of being a human.
