This Way Up

Pidge Productions

This coming of age drama is a bittersweet ‘real life’ play about two long lost childhood friends who meet up.

A voyage of self discovery, and a reflection of the journey we all take in growing up.

The friends rifle through cardboard boxes and reflect on happy memories as children entwining a mix of comedy and poignancy as they re-live old experiences by using expressive child like play role acting.

This  is an effective and engaging theatrical performance that has an air of mystery and intrigue.
Fringe Secrets


a journey back to my childhood... dreading packing up for uni but will hold on to the memories in my mind for ever.

Imaginative, touching, funny - absolutely loved it!

Just loved This Way Up - gentle, funny and touching.


What a lovely, lovely show - a simple concept done beautifully and with a great sense of play. Always stay as natural as that ladies! Fran, Cottongrass.
