Review by Amy Yorston

Tightly directed, fabulously fast paced and crammed with characters Max and Ivan’s 2012 Fringe offering lovingly sends up the genre of the con with ‘the old gang’ getting back together for one last job.

With flashback sequences, a high speed chase and a surprise stunt segment, you’ll be amazed at the stamina of these two comedic actors as they slickly morph between roles. With no costume changes, the characters are defined purely through physicality and accent and whilst some switches are hectic the roles never get blurred.

After reinterpreting Holmes and Watson in 2011 and staging their own heist in 2012, one can only imagine where 2013 will take them!
