Countries Shaped Like Stars



This exquisite telling of Gwendolyn and Bartholomew’s adorably awkward love proves you don’t need pyrotechnics to make sparks. The chemistry between the actors and their voices, along with dialogue that takes full advantage of the rainbow that is the English language, ensures you fall hard for Gwendolyn and Bartholomew too. Countries Shaped Like Stars perfectly hits what must be the hardest note when it comes to love stories – it sweetly captures the beauty of the silly, goofy side of fresh and honest love. This electric, bittersweet musical ride is a tender reflection on the risks and invaluable rewards of human connection. – Carolyn Jervis

    Definitely a MUST see for the Fringe this year. It’s a very intimate show that connects with it’s audience, and is also interactive getting you to play along! (don’t worry though you don’t have to get out of your seat, for those who don’t like to be picked out). This show will make you smile from ear to ear and laugh at it’s SPECTACULAR story and it’s MAGNIFICENT creativity.

    There were a few flubs in the show when I saw it,(as there are with any live performance) for instance a shoe falling off and a light accidentally being moved, but both performers were quick on their feet to bring these flubs into the show and make them just another reason for the audience to laugh and enjoy.

    The show is definitely family friendly and I would encourage you to bring your kids (obviously the ones old enough to follow the story) as I guarantee you they will love it. That being said it’s an enjoyable show for all ages and isn’t just a “kids show”.

    NOTE: The smallish wooden chairs are deceivingly comfortable are are not just meant for kids, grab one of them if you can!

    The best seating in the house is in one of the front rows, trust me!! (the stage is in the middle of the audience) NOTE: some how with this seating arrangement, they make it work so you don’t see their backs almost ever with either side you sit on so don’t worry about finding “THE spot” just sit in the front.

    5 stars from me, hope you all get out to see it!!

    I had heard lots about this show and I was not disappointed.

    A creative journey into a foreign land has fringers on the edge of their seats. Both Nick and Emily are incredibly charismatic and had my attention from start to finish.

    I couldn’t help but smile like a kid on Christmas the whole time!!

    Family Friendly! A lovely show with and even better cast. A Must See!
