Gareth returns to get elbow-deep with Our New Girl at The Bush.
Some dullards take on Sheen, and announce our sponsor the London International Mime Festival.

Our fearless fools arrive in Auld Reekie to find uses for old flyers, diagnose themselves with Edinburgh fever, cry out for accommodation, and impersonate 19th century gentlemen.
