Sweet Grassmarket Venue 18, 5th-20th August 2010

Newcastle University Theatre Society (NUTS) returns to the Fringe following last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Bob’s Date’ with ‘Cannes’, a piece of original writing by Samuel Jefferson. A drama-comedy, the play is set during the illustrious Cannes Film Festival, where the glitz and glamour of Hollywood descends on the French Riviera. However, crisis strikes when a Palme d’Or-winning writer returns to the festival and punches an old friend on the red carpet. Held under guard in a hotel room, he is forced to confront his past relationships armed with only his dry wit and an even drier whiskey.
