Angel Springs the UK’s leading water cooler service provider sponsored the Flood Theatre Company with their successful production of ‘Flood’ this summer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Flood was a new endeavour for the company mainly comprising of young artists who are training at the East 15 Acting School. "Flood, an experimental sketch comedy, was our debut show at the Fringe Festival. We aimed to push at the boundaries of what comedy can do. We also wanted to introduce a select group of talented young artists to the world. In addition to our nightly performances we appeared on established Fringe chat show Edinburgh Tonight after being scouted by one of their hosts." "This production was crucial for us: a testing ground for our work both as an artistic endeavour and as a start-up business, and an essential first showcase in a hugely competitive environment. We're glad to say that we've achieved our goals and learnt a lot. And we couldn't have done any of it without the generous support of Angel Springs." James Ivens and Andrew Jones, Directors of Flood Theatre. Flood filled seats on every performance during the festival and were reviewed by various journalists from the press and received lots of audience feedback. Here are just a snippet of the press reviews.... ★★★★ HOTLY TIPPED " Flood have the best British gift in comedy… full of ideas ... Flood show signs that there are going to be some interesting things on the horizon. As a group they work well together and they create some hard, funny, and stupid sketches that are well performed ... there are going to be some pretty memorable sketches from this group." The New Current
"A cruel comedy and a fusion of sketch show, detective story and tragedy ... anti-comedy ... surreal to the nth degree ... It was quick paced, it was totally different ... I guess you will either love this or totally hate it ... absurd, experimental style."
