Threesome: Brenda’s got a baby; Good Vibes; Spring Awakening (Edinburgh fringe reviews) #TheSpaceUk

As a Tuesday threesome I saw three shows at The Space UK back to back. Sex was a central theme to all of them.

Brenda’s got a baby

Told the story of two sister’s and their journey into adulthood. The older Amy is heading to university. As the name suggests Brenda has a baby at 16. The sister’s struggles on their chosen paths and jealousy of each other’s lives are interspersed with audio of teenage Mother’s. Funny and touching.

Good vibes

Set in a sex shop. Energetic performance, lots of audience interaction, lots of laughs. Additionally poignant monologues regarding different sexual journeys.

Spring awakening

A coming of age story set in the 60s; a very different time to the first two (although some of Brenda’s comments before discovering pregnancy did not reflect vast progress). Almost minimal set but, with such a rich plot it was not needed; including rape and suicide.
