Fringe REVIEW: Green Fingers - ★★★★★

Updated: Aug 12, 2023

A deliciously Dahl-esque treat from madcap duo Fladam (Flo Poskitt and Adam Sowter), about a boy born with gunky, green fingers! Is he really rotten, or just misunderstood? Maybe the answers lie in the mysterious school garden… Featuring live music, puppetry and plenty of humour. A blooming marvellous musical for all the family! Fladam are 'the most amazing hilarious musical comedy duo' (Harry Whittaker, BBC Radio). Credits include Love Bites at York Theatre Royal – ***** (Stage), 'Joyous' (Guardian) – Channel 4's The Piano and Musical Comedy Hootenanny – **** (Mervyn Stutter's Pick of the Fringe).

Georgie (Age 8) - ★★★★★

"I give it 5 out of 5 I liked all of the show and the songs they were really good."

Archie (Age 10) - ★★★★1/2

"It was very interesting with a good dynamic and plot. I liked the use of the Indiana Jones music!"

Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★

"Brilliant story, with an awesome homemade puppet. I loved the twist at the end (no spoilers!). I really enjoyed the songs, which were cheesy and funny at the same time. The only downside was that it was a bit too childish for me. My favourite character was Mr. Marigold because he was a very cheesy clean person. I would recommend this show to anyone younger than 10 (I would be certain they would love it). Overall a funny family show which was very impressive for two people to pull off."

Debs - ★★★★★

"'A fun and heart-warming tale with great characters, music and story about accepting others for their differences.

Felt like had been sent back in time experiencing old childhood stories.

Please don't miss this you'll feel like a kid again!'"
