Yippee Ki Yay by Richard Marsh, directed by Hal Chambers
Gilded Balloon at the Museum 3 – 27 Aug (not 9, 16, 23) 5.45pm
Achingly funny retelling of classic (festive?) film Die Hard created by Richard Marsh, Fringe First winner, BBC Audio Drama Best Comedy winner and New York cop (one of these is untrue). When gunmen seize an LA skyscraper, off-duty policeman John McClane is the hostages’ only hope. This uplifting action romp (and unauthorised parody) pays affectionate tribute to the iconic 80s fan favourite. Performed by Darrel Bailey. Content warning: divorce, foot trauma, German terrorists.

As well as producing its own work there, and co-producing with others, Seabright Live also works on a general management and marketing consultancy basis on behalf of other producers looking to present work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world.

Please contact us if you are interested in discussing such an arrangement. Previous clients and collaborators include Broadway Asia International, Steven Berkoff’s East Productions, Blue Box Touring, Chantal Productions, and many more.

Between 2003 and 2014 we produced the Festival Highlights programme in Edinburgh, which brought over 200 productions to the fringe over this period.
