Your Wife in Their Hands

RIP's first appearance at the Fringe brought some of the Christmas Company's
best known sons and daughters together once more for a series of special performances.
The cast list was indeed an impressive one with the addition of Ian Matheson
tinkling the ivories and occassionally playing piano.
This first show was an exciting mix of song and dance thought-provoking satire,
illuminating social comment and smut, and seemed likely to take the Fringe
by storm, assuming all other advertised revues cancelled.
Some of the cast had pronounced thespian tendancies while others aspired
to consultant status, fatherhood and Rotary Club membership. This inaugural
appearance by these Fringe virgins, these theatrical neophytes, represented
an important stepping stone towards the achievement of their varied ambitions.
