Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre – Post Office Scandal: The Musical

June 16 @ 19:30

Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre - Post Office Scandal: The Musical

Their 13th brand new comedy show, all done in the best possible taste. Honest! An hour of songs, sketches, socks and violence, telling the true story of the Post Office Scandal, and much much more.

★★★★ “A distracting tonic for the times” – The Scotsman

★★★★★ “Had every single audience member… laughing until they cried” – Edinburgh Evening News

★★★★ “The finest, funniest fringe comedy you will see in Edinburgh” – Everything Theatre

Post Office Scandal is the Socks’ 13th new hour long comedy show, following such Edinburgh Fringe hits as Socks Do Shakespeare, Socks Do Superheroes, Eurovision Sock Contest, Boo Lingerie The Socky Horror Show, and Minging Detectives.

The show has already proved controversial, with some online commentators suggesting the subject matter may be in poor taste. Barbara on Facebook writes:”Those involved had their lives ruined, a few were even driven to suicide So what’s so funny about that !!!”

The Socks are keen to reassure fans that they will be handling the topic in the best possible taste. Anyone who remembers their past songs and sketches, that have dealt sensitively with everything from Brexit to the sexual politics in Shakespeare, and from The Bechdel Test to racial stereotypes in Eurovision, will be prepared for the Socks handling this with the delicacy and gentle touch you’d expect from a man with socks on his hands.

Duration: 60mins
