Edinburgh Fringe: The Resistance

Gilded Balloon: The Wee Room: Tickets on Sale

The Resistance

After her critically acclaimed solo show, Savage, Alice Fraser is bringing a new hour to The Edinburgh Fringe.

The Resistance is a show about the tumbledown house she grew up in, and the tumbledown people who lived in it. A show about how to be human, what it is to be good and what it is to be broken.

Where do you stand when the chips are down? Who do you stand with? 

In 2015 Savage (SBS Comedy, ABC Radio, A Rational Fear) sold out seasons and earned critical acclaim at Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and New Zealand Comedy Festivals, as well as getting glowing reviews during her debut Edinburgh Fringe Festival season.

Now, in The Resistance, Alice brings you a new hour full of silly funny songs, silly funny jokes… and a bit of devastating human truth.
