Following 16 years of productions on the Buxton Fringe, award-winning theatre company Three’s Company are offering a new comedy podcast for this year’s mainly online coronavirus-proof Buxton Fringe (1-19 July).
They are joined in their online adventures by a host of top actors from previous projects, including some very special guest stars. Listen out for Les Dennis as a bungling wizard, Rufus Hound as a bankrupt space-ranger, Youssef Kerkour as an acerbic butler, and Caroline Quentin as an evil scientist who risks destroying the world.
Three’s Company’s Adventure Department follows the trio’s attempts to record a serious theatre podcast, which is unfortunately interrupted each episode by an urgent adventure. Series 1 sees them rescuing an island from a wicked witch, saving the Queen from aliens, solving a murder mystery, and taking down a film noir crime boss – all before attempting to stop a zombie apocalypse in the dramatic season finale.
The laugh-a-minute comedy premieres online on 3 July as part of the Buxton Fringe, with the first two episodes available to download from 7:00pm that evening. Subsequent episodes then follow each fortnight – all completely free.
All episodes can be found at threescompany.uk/adventure so be sure to subscribe and join the adventure!
