EDFRINGE PREVIEWS: LAURA LEXX & IAN SMITH
LAURA LEXX: TYRANNOSAURUS LEXX
Laura Lexx returns with her second hour, following on from the success of “Lovely” with the follow up show “Lovely Wife”. No points for guessing what happened between shows. In this markedly more mature and broadly scoping show, Laura explores themes of identity in womanhood as they are altered by marriage, children, physical appearance alteration and work defining oneself. If this all sounds a bit heavy, just remember a lot of this will be explained with the use of penguins and cake.
“One of the most delightful performers you’re ever likely to see.” GQ
“Lexx is incredibly engaging and it’s difficult to see what will stop her success.” The Skinny
IAN SMITH: WORK-IN-PROGRESS
Award-winning comedian Ian Smith (BBC3’s Sweat the Small Stuff, BBC1’s The Ark) returns with a work-in-progress of his fourth solo show.

“You’d do well to catch him now before his inevitable jump to the big time” The Telegraph.
