The Soaking of Vera Shrimp at #edfringe @VeraShrimp

Late breakfast after yesterday's 2am finish and then along to the bustling Pleasance Courtyard/The Attic at 12.45pm to see the wonderful "Soaking of Vera Shrimp".

A one-person play, written by Alison Carr, directed by Rosie Kellagher and performed by Tessa Parr.

Without giving away spoilers, the setting is a classroom inspired science project, and the story of a girl who discovers an extraordinary ability.

The water in the story provides a lens to explore a range of situations, poignant and dark yet imbued with a overwhelming sense of positivity.

The audience loved the charming Vera, smiled, laughed and shed a tear with her as the story unfolded.

An unforgettable fresh idea and truly a story about never giving up.
