Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: Nudity, Free Beer, Good for Kids, reviewed by The Scotsman’s Ben Walters.

★★

This semi-improvised knockabout offering from young Canadian company Yuffa Fringe gets points for its attention-grabbing title – although, for the avoidance of doubt, there’s no nudity and kids are liable to be bamboozled. So are adults. The plot involves a performance artist, two kids’ entertainers and a rock star/money man duo competing to tell the story of a farmboy for the benefit of a tech magnate.

It’s scattershot, oddly structured and frankly baffling, but also shows glimmers of inventive lo-fi charm and some zippy performances. And you do get a free beer.
