The Jurassic Parks returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe along with two brand new shows

The Jurassic Parks returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe along with two brand new shows

The Jurassic Parks is an updated version of the sell-out, multi award-winning, laugh-out-loud spin on Spielberg’s classic. Welcome to the unlikely setting of Lyme Regis Community Centre, where the Park Family – Terry, Jade and Noah – embark on a journey to a misty past. Where, when things go wrong, family feuds are faced with the rapturous roar of DIY dinosaurs. A theatrical celebration of cinematic nostalgia and a moving reminder of the ones we love.

 

Mars Actually is Superbolt’s brand new show, fresh from sell-out previews and winning the Origins Award for Outstanding New Show at VAULT Festival 2017. By the light of the Sun, By the gaze of the moons, We stand together. As red planet dwellers, Wiser for the errors, Of our Earthly ancestors. With truth, love and care, We breathe without air. Chuck, Gracey and Conway are here on Earth to tell you about life on Mars, Actually.

 

The Producer and Director team behind these two shows also bring you Mental, a show about one son’s exploration into his mum’s mental health. At a time when mental health is increasingly making the headlines, yet still so many are unable to speak about their experience for fear of stigma, this show tells a personal story that will get people talking.

 

Superbolt Theatre’s Artistic Directors and Performers are Maria Askew, Frode Gjerløw and Simon Maeder. Their work tours internationally, with Dinosaur Park recently playing at Adelaide and Melbourne Festivals, followed by an extensive UK tour. Past productions include Centralia, Piatto Finale and The Uncanny Valley.
