ADRIFTWritten by George Infini
AUGUST 14 & 16
Written by George Infini
Directed by Scott Caron
Three men, one raft and no hope in the Atlantic Ocean.
ADRIFT tells the story of three men who, after a failed mutiny, find themselves cast adrift on a piece of wood in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. An arrogant Englishman, an angry Welshman and an infuriatingly simple man from the West Country. Together, they must set aside their differences and await rescue. But will it ever come, and can they resist their carnal impulses…?
Originally staged at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019, this script was developed by Infini Productions, the Cardiff-based comedy theatre company, and headlined the Cardiff Comedy Festival 2014 to rave reviews. Directed by Scott Caron, this play will headline the Gloucester Stage Gala on Friday August 12th, and the presented Sunday August 14 and Tuesday August 16 at 7:30pm
“The best laughs are the unexpected ones, and Infini has a gift for writing the most ludicrous line possible.”
One of the 50 Shows to See at Edinburgh Fringe (2019)
“George Infini’s three-hander is one of the funniest shows you’ll see in Edinburgh this year.”
