Ed Fringe 2017

“Martin is talented in every style she pursues, and like her Italian forbears, is a real Renaissance woman.” – Broadway Baby ****

A comedy show about exile! In this new solo show, Charlie introduces you to a variety of historical characters as you’ve never seen them before.

Dante, the renowned Italian poet, sets aside his stories about Hell to guide his new friends through a journey of time, space and potted plants.

Napoleon is your new life coach; Eve wants you to bring down the patriarchy with whisky and King Lear performs all of King Lear in 10 minutes!

Puppets, improv, clowning and stand-up! This is great fun if you love history or know nothing about it at all.


Broadway Baby  – **** “her natural funniness always shines through”

AAAEdinburgh – **** “A brave debut solo show from the young comedienne and a  very impressive one at that.”

Steve Roe, Director of Hoopla Impro –   “I saw a preview of Charlie V Martin’s Dante’s History of the Banished and thought it was one of the funniest and most joyful shows ever. Puppets, King Lear performing King Lear himself in 10 minutes, drama, fun and even tears it has it all!”
