Active Virgin

5 stars
*****

True to form, One Academy Productions return to the Fringe with new writing in the form of Active Virgin. Although it covers such serious issues as body dysmorphia and the unhealthy quest for so-called ‘perfection’ it does so in a quirky, surreal and often spontaneously funny production.

The direction and choreography are inspired and provide just as many visual laughs as does the witty dialogue. Attention to detail and high production values always lift One Academy’s productions into the professional realm and this is no exception – the singing and harmonies are tight and spot on and the whole production is very slick.

Definitely a show to catch this year and one of the highlights of the Fringe so far.
