The Gilded Balloon
Kiss Me Honey, Honey!
“a true jewel in the crown of the Gilded Balloon” – Broadway Baby
Written by Philip Meeks
Directed by Sam Kane
Performed by Grant Stott and Andy Gray
“Scotland’s most seasoned comic performers” – The Scotsman
DUE to overwhelming demand and following a total sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, the Fringe First award-winning hit stage show returns with a ‘last chance to see’ limited run of seven performances from 17 -20 and 23 – 24 August.
Two men of a certain age form an unlikely friendship through a shared love of Shirley Bassey. Together, they begin a hilarious search for the women of their dreams, after their lives seem to have fallen apart.
Acclaimed Scottish actors, Andy Gray and Grant Stott, star as Ross and Graham… and all the women in their lives, in a “dazzling display of comic skill” – The Scotsman.
The show is alarmingly fast paced, with a darkness underneath the hilarious, sometimes shambolic look at life, relationships and what it means to reach a more ‘mature’ age and stage and find yourself not where you thought you’d be.
Commissioned for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by Karen Koren, artistic director of the Gilded Balloon, in 2013 this is truly a play for Edinburgh.
Starring two local favourites of Panto Dame fame – Andy Gray and Grant Stott; more than proving they have a serious side too!
“Make no mistake; Gray and Stott’s delivery – in gesture and spoken lines – is as tight as a rusted wing nut.” ***** Edinburgh Evening News
Written by the acclaimed playwright, Philip Meeks, who also wrote the 2012 Gilded Balloon hit ‘Murder, Marple and Me’ and directed by the much-loved Sam Kane, this star-studded creative team sparkle.
“Simple, old-school fun that doesn’t need to try too hard – Kiss Me Honey, Honey is full of laughs and real life pathos. See it.” – Daily Record
“it will make you laugh, until you cry.” – **** The Scotsman
“Kiss Me Honey, Honey! is a tour de force” – Ed Fest Magazine
