Emoji: the untold story of the little people in your phone. Join us at Edinburgh Fringe as we take a tongue-in-cheek look at fame, faith and communication.
Meet Kyle’s phone. Inside it, like every mobile, a hidden emoji-world exists. Emojis live with one ultimate goal: to become one of the ‘frequently used’. Brian the brown shoe emoji is a deadbeat. In one night, Brian is used 27 times, skyrocketing him to fame. How will he cope? Will the poo emoji like him? Or will he end up back in the pool of anonymous emojis, never to be used again? Join us, as we delve into the fame-obsessed universe of emojis. You’ll laugh with tears of joy! You’ll cry two parallel streams of tears! You’ll… Aubergine!
This is the third time Imperial College London’s Dramatic Society have performed at Fringe in recent years. The company developed the script using improvisation-based processes to deliver a funny, irreverent story about celebrity culture, told through the eyes of Emojis.
Emoji will be performed from 14th-20th August 2016 at Spotlights, Venue 278, 22-26 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PQ. Tickets available here.
