Paul T Davies reviews The Adventures Of Butt Boy and Tigger presented by Outcast Theatre at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Returning to the Fringe is Out Cast Theatre's filthy romance about two men who meet online, re-enact sexual fantasies, but find that they both seek more. Dare they meet and find out if reality is better than fantasy?
The actors are perfect, and wonderfully uninhibited! Harry Franklin is the naïve Butt Boy, despite his handle, encountering the more experienced Tigger, Bradley Curran playing him with a perfect mix of swagger and innocence.
If Barbara Cartland had ever written porn, they would have been like the scenes these guys create! The rugby coach and player, the officer and private, the master and servant, all hilarious, especially Butt Boy's character interpretation!
But just as Steven Dawson's script is in danger of being just a series of sketches, the play turns nicely into longing as they realise this isn't really what they want, and they agree to meet. It's well worth an hour of your time, and the online generation of any sexual orientation will recognise a lot!
