Nathan Peter Grassi and Ida Berglöw Kenneway return to Buxton Fringe with Tropez!, a new theatre production which is a “fast-paced screwball comedy about a jewel heist on the French Riviera”.

The duo have been collaborating for more than 10 years, writing and performing together and as part of a larger comedy group, The Dead Secrets. In 2018 their show Nathan and Ida’s Hot Dog Stand won best comedy at Buxton.

The creators, Nathan and Ida, said, “this show explores the culture, glamour and tribulations of a world where everything is possible and yet unattainable at the same time. It’s every classic movie you’ve ever imagined, in a spicy and intoxicating mix.”

Tropez! can be seen in the Arts Centre Studio, Underground Venues, Buxton on Friday 12 July at 9PM, Sunday 14 July at 7:15PM and Friday 19 July at 9PM.
