Anna and Helen : Stuck In A Rat

By Ron Bingham

Stuck in a Rat was a fun and life-affirming show from two talented comedians. The theme of the show is all about trying to get people enjoying life once again.

Anna O’Grady and Helen Cripps go through survey responses about how enjoyment can be achieved, trying each option out (either on each other or an unsuspecting audience member) and assessing its worth. During the show they cut to video footage of themselves out and about trying out activities, and their playing with the screen/room intersection is a delight to behold. They have obviously done a lot of rehearsal practicing the interactions with their on-screen versions to make it seamless.

Anna & Helen also perform a couple of songs, one of which is worth the price of the ticket on its own (Who’s that tiny bitch?). The audience was having a great time, and we all sang along gustily to the closing number. This is definitely a show that will brighten up your spirits.

Stuck In A Rat is on at Pleasance Courtyard until August 26
