We met some of the cast of Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally and the writer and director on Friday and have just heard the good news that the play has won The Stage award.

The play is about an illicit affair between a teen and his teacher. Written by Kevin Armento, it’s inspired by Kevin’s collaboration with the late Rik Mayall (they were working on an adaptation of Oliver Twist just before Mayall’s sudden death). It’s a story of a student-teacher love affair told from a perspective of a mobile phone. In maths, ‘PEMDAS’ is a common technique of remembering the order of operations…

It is already a winner as Kevin Armento’s play premiered off Broadway and became The New York Times critics Pick of 2015.

This is a must see at the Fringe!

Pleasance at 12.50
