Two young actors from Pinner are making a name for themselves having performed an entirely original show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Harrison Sharpe, 17, wrote, produced, designed, and co-directed and performed the show Real Eyes alongside his good friend, Archie Stevens.
The pair performed the two man show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last month to a grand reception, managing to get a number of five-star reviews.
The show, as described by Harrison, “follows the lives through discussion of two brothers, who through great physicality and dialogue, reveal themes of ambition, family, age, crime and mental health.”
Local audiences will have the opportunity to see the boysperforming Real Eyes at the Pump House Theatre for WatfordFringe on October 12 and 13.
A gushing review from Taylor Crockett, of SG Fringemagazine, said: “I have a slight knot in my stomach writing this review simply as I’m worried I can’t portray simply how amazing it is. I can easily say this is the best piece of new theatre I’ve seen in a long time and I haven’t gone two hours in the past few days without telling someone about it.”
Richard Beck wrote on Broadwaybaby.com: “Creating work of this quality portends a bright future for the boys and years of powerful theatre for lovers of drama. For now, let’s hope that Real Eyes can be brought back to the stage elsewhere. It’s a gem that deserves further exposure.”
