Andrea Donovan: Regret Me Not (3 stars)

This article is from 2009.

Andrea Donovan

The lingering poignancy of Regret Me Not, in which Donovan portrays a range of fictional women, indicates a bright future for this comic. There are some duds, including a Geordie drug addict turned life coach, but her Aussie school swimming instructor is wickedly funny and her African-baby craving librarian could be one of Fringe 2009’s most tender creations.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 31 Aug, 4.45pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7.50–8.50).

Regret Me Not

Comedian Andrea Donovan's brilliantly inspired characters have regrets. What if Audrey could adopt an African baby? Why didn't Ms Warner pursue her modelling career? What can Kathleen teach us that we don't already know? 'Excellent' (Time Out).

I went to see this performance on Sunday evening 16th August and have to say it was the highlight of my entire weekend at Edinburgh. You MUST go and see this show, it is so refreshingly different and the characters Andrea portrays are done with perfection....EXCELLENT and highly recommended... ***** 5 stars all round !!
