Review - 'Pondling'

One of the wonderful things about Dublin's Fringe Festival is the sheer number and variety of the shows - sometimes it's fun just to pick something on short notice with no advance knowledge of what it's about. Trust in Róise Goan and her team: they wouldn't include a production if it weren't good enough. So I popped down to my local theatre, the beautiful Smock Alley, to see the opening performance of Pondling, a one-woman show by Gúna Nua.

It's lovely. Genevieve Hulme-Beaman hits the mark right from the start in her role as a young farmgirl with a crush, making good use of the atmospheric venue with a simple and effective set. Pondling is a delightful and entertaining comedy.

Rating: good - 3/5

Duration: 50 minutes. Tickets cost €13 / €11. Continues in Smock Alley Theatre until Friday 13th September 2013.
