Preview: Life and Crimes of Reverend Raccoon at Edinburgh C Nova

The Life and Crimes of Reverend Raccoon
Edinburgh C Nova (Venue 145)
Sunday 21st  - Monday 29th August 2016

Reverend Raccoon is a man of many faces: conman, soldier, father, faith healer and preacher, then God found him. Now he’s escaped federal detention, is about to deliver one of his final sermons and share the divine knowledge he has acquired on his journey. He’s also going to educate his congregation (the audience) as to why, in life, they should always choose the baked potato option. A one man black comedy, by two times Scripted finalist and award nominated playwright Jeremy Fletcher, about why some people need to keep the faith.

The Life and Crimes of Reverend Raccoon is directed by Marcus J Bazley, played by Gareth Watkins and written by Jeremy Fletcher. In May 2016 the play received Arts Council funding for 13 days of research and development working in association with Cast Theatre, Sheffield Theatre (part of Making Room), Theatre Delicatessen and Little Theatre Doncaster.

This will be Sheepish Productions third outing at the Edinburgh Fringe. Their first play, Shadow On Their Wall, received a Best New Writing Nomination and ★★★★ reviews from Fringe Guru and York Mix Mag. Their second play, a black comedy called The Last Motel, was part of the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe and received   ★★★★ reviews from Edfringe Review..
