Wingman @ The Pleasance Dome Review (Edinburgh Festival)

This delightful two man show is a heart warming story filled with wonderful poetry, jokes and stories. The play opens with Richard, played by Richard Marsh, talking about his mother who is dying of cancer. At her death bed he is reunited with his father Len, played by Jerome Wright, who he has not seen for nearly 20 years and whom he hates with a passion. What follows is many unlikely and awkward situations whilst Len tries to make amends with his son by being his Wingman in life. At the same time, Richard tries desperately to not make his fathers mistakes and to be better then he was. Even though some of the situations do seem rather unlikely the play is so well-written that it is all very believable.
