In his second show, Without a Doubt, Thomas cast eight ex-offenders, led by Thomas McCrudden, a former gangster who has taken time away from violent crime. He is determined to return to his past, but after a few tough questions from Arty Farty Weller, the team wants to tell his story on the stage as the US audience, consumers of violent entertainment, are quick to label him and his ilk a monster. The show’s supporting cast includes Thomas, his gimlet, his criminal sidekick and a prison consultant.
As for McCrudden, there is a strong performance from the company worthy of many a professional theatre company and its stage work. Monkey Barrel is the best comedy cast I’ve ever seen on the Royal Mile, and the cast will bring you their show.

Patrick Marber’s play was directed by George Chilcott and performed at Leeds University Union in May 2010. After its success in Leeds, the play moved to the Edinburgh 2010 Fringe Festival, where it won widespread acclaim and became a sold-out show. A total of six plays were produced by the Dugout Theatre, two of which formed the Dugout Theatre, which returned to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2011.
The Dugout was selected to perform an updated version of John Godber’s popular play in a non-theatrical space in March 2011. After three successful nights at the Hi-Fi Club, the play was selected as one of The Dugouts “two shows for the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe, which was staged at the Sanctuary, Zoo and Roxy in August 2011.

Selina Thompson is one of the women in the series, which traces the transatlantic slave triangle from Britain to Ghana to Jamaica. The play is a personal journey she has taken, but it is also the journey of millions of black men, women and children. A few days earlier, a white woman on the podium spoke of telling people that as we know them, they are isolated and that race does not matter.
