Pollyanna

Held at Paradise Palms bar in Edinburgh, the night is a messy glitz-blitz showcase of performance art, drag, cabaret acts and queer and alternative performance. Pollyanna begain with monthly nights, before becoming a full Edinburgh Fringe show, with three years under its belt. Coming soon for Fringe 2018.

Adam won Creative Edinburgh’s Leadership Award 2016 for his work on Pollyanna and EAMIF.

EDINBURGH FESTIVALS MAGAZINE
“A cacophony of rampant filth and backyard decadence, Pollyanna is the only queer collective you want to see this Fringe.“
“It is seldom you find a queer cabaret that truly delivers in all regards, but the diversity Pollyanna celebrates secures its place at the top of the list.“

“It’s packed and noisy, rowdy and messy, queerly experimental and reassuringly different – a welcome reminder that the Fringe is not only the place to catch a hot ticket or see a famous face but also to take a chance on the weird, the wild and the Weetabix, and then keep on dancing.”

"Political and sexual, aggressive and hilarious"
