Catching Up – Fringe 2021

“Catching Up”, Theatre Paradok’s latest project, is a dark comedy that portrays all the nuances of trying to maintain a childhood friendship you’ve grown out of. It centers on two friends, Sean and Lemon, on a writing retreat as they attempt to build the futures they’ve always dreamed of – being Hollywood stars. But when creative differences lead them to turn to their past for inspiration, Lemon realises her best friend may not be everything she remembers him to be, and instead of writing their futures the pair finds themselves being haunted by the events of their childhood.

We are beyond excited to return to in-person theatre with this Edinburgh Fringe Festival show! You can now book tickets to see “Catching Up” here:
