We recently learned that A Brief History of Beer will be coming to the Orlando Fringe this May . In essence, the show is a one hour drink-a-long comedy where Will Glenn and Trish Parry travel through time with the audience in a Quantum Pint Machine, drinking and exploring the history of beer. Sponsored by Brown Distributing, A Brief History of Beer has received positive praise from beer lovers and enthusiasts who have seen the show performed in Florida.
Here is the official press release...
After touring around the world, with fantastic runs at the Edinburgh 2013 and Adelaide 2014 Fringes, Wish Experience comes to Orlando with A Brief History of Beer!
A Brief History of Beer is an educational, delicious ramble through the myths and legends surrounding everyone's favorite bevvy! Equal measures theatre, lecture, and surreal drink-a-long game, in A Brief History of Beer, Will Glenn and Trish Parry ask audiences to join them
in their Quantum Pint Machine, where they travel through time, from ancient Sumeria to present day, learning about the world's favorite drink. The Wish founders have combed the records, visited the ruins, and tasted an impossible number of beers to bring you this docudramedy based on the life and times of our mistress and our muse ... the humble beer.
Wish has been inducted in to The British Guild of Beer Writers, and received praise in Edinburgh from many reviewers. A Brief History of Beer is “definitely one for the avid pub-frequenter” (Millie Morris, Edfringe Review), and “a fizzy flagon of edutainment” (Paul Levy, Fringereview). After fresh direction from critically acclaimed Jeffrey Mayhew, the show has received nothing but praise in the UK and Australia, receiving 4.5/5 from Rip It Up magazine, with InDaily saying “A Brief History of Beer is an opportunity to learn, to be amazed and to imbibe with them. Be warned, one drink may not be enough!”
A Brief History of Beer runs from May 16th-25th at The Venue (Virginia Drive). For all ticket information please visit http://orlandofringe.ticketleap.com/a-brief-history-of-beer/
