WINNER of Underbelly, New Diorama and Methuen Drama’s hit-making UNTAPPED AWARD 2022. 

This is not a virtuosic, visually stunning dance-theatre show about Hong Kong or its people. It's not about the effects of censorship brought by the National Security Bill, nor is it about the loss of freedom in the Special Administrative Region. This is not a show about that deep, sinking, helpless feeling that we can't quite put into words.

Everything is fine. Max Percy + Friends are not here.

Presented By

Max Percy and Friends and Untapped Award Winner 2022


Contains distressing themes, Scenes of violence

Underbelly Cowgate



He tells tales of lands undiscovered and creatures unheard of, but is he really the same man who disappeared so long ago? They say travel broadens the mind... but how far before it breaks? Following sell-out Fringe runs in 2018 & 2019, Box Tale Soup return with a new version of Swift's incredible adventure. Praise for Box Tale Soup: ★★★★★ - Fringe Guru ★★★★★ - Young Perspective Commissioned by the Clark Memorial Library, UCLA.  Creation supported by Arts Council England.

Murder Ballads

Explosive gig-theatre meets dark comedy cabaret as four actor-musicians invite you to O'Malley's Bar in the town of Millhaven, 1882, in the wildest part of the old Wild West. Weaving Cave's outrageous songs into a darkly comic narrative, the performers take you through stories of betrayals, bar brawls, and blood baths. Expect an hour of laughter, horror, live music and one of the highest death counts you'll ever experience at the Fringe!

Coming Out of My Cage (And I've Been Doing Just Fine)

How did it end up like this? An interactive investigation with karaoke, lip-syncing, and absolute bangers. Tim and Hannah come across a viral video of an Irish bar singing 'Mr Brightside' to their recently departed friend. Reading online comments they uncover stories of incredible people - all united by one song. Together they conduct an investigation into the chart-busting phenomenon and give you an unashamedly good night out in the process.
