Edinburgh Fringe : Molly Wobbly’s Tit Factory – Assembly Rooms

Book/Music/Lyrics/Director: Paul Boyd
Reviewer: John Roberts
[Rating:2.5]

Nothing is really happening in Little Happening, Margaret (Leanne Jones) has just received her CLIT, Jake and Jemma’s relationship is staid, and Robbie’s Horology is just ticking along, things just never happen in this quiet provincial town, well that is until the mysterious Ithanku (Russell Morton) appears and decides to change things for the better?

Boyd’s Molly Wobbly’s Tit Factory has aspirations of becoming the next big cult musical, unfortunately it falls, fairly short of the mark, while the music is entertaining, the script however is tedious, obvious and far too juvenile in its outset to really set the show alight.
A tight playing area means the staging is far too simplistic and lacks the craft and attention to detail you would expect from a bigger budget fringe production. The cast battle admirably with the cards they have been dealt, however some strange casting choices are a little bemusing, the excellent Jones as Margaret provides plenty to enjoy but is far too fresh faced to be playing a 42 year old. Morton as Ithanku gives an extremely pleasing stylistic performance full of energy and commitment.
Molly Wobbly’s Tit Factory has the promise of a great fun musical, but at present lacks in far too many areas, to have the longevity it so desperately wants, perhaps some more workshops and a few rewrites and it may just reach its goal.
Runs until 26th August
