Bog Standard Britain
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2011
Pensioners Glenda and Stephen Edwards rant against today's tawdry Britain. If you detest government speak, musak, abysmal service, toxic toilets, scruffy clothes, infantile language and junk culture, this is the show for you! Are you sick of clichés like hard working families, the squeezed middle, sustainable communities, ring fenced front line services, greater transparency, lessons have been learned, it must never happen again and going forward? Must the spoken word always be drowned by background music and inane sound effects? Are you maddened by litter, empty soap dispensers, untrained staff and bus windows obscured by adverts? Welcome!
