AGA stars in Fringe feast of banking and baking!
AGA shop in Edinburgh to provide one of the festival's more unusual backdrops.
One of the hottest tickets at this year's Edinburgh Fringe sees the heady world of banking mixed with feelgood baking when the AGA Shop in the city plays host to a hilarious show by working mother and Financial Times writer Mrs Moneypenny.
From Tuesday to Sunday between August 5 and 29, the AGA Shop in Frederick Street is the venue for the show, 'At Home with Mrs Moneypenny', in which the FT's weekend columnist comes to life with hysterical tales of banking, business and cost centres.
The AGA shop will provide one of the festival's more unusual backdrops and Mrs Moneypenny's co-star for the show will be the AGA itself, with audiences treated to delicious AGA-cooked snacks and a complimentary glass of champagne.
Mrs Moneypenny - described by MoneyWeek as "the only writer who can make finance funny" - will be ably supported by AGA Living food editor Dawn Roads and, during the second half of the month, by AGA Cookery Doctor Richard Maggs.
'At Home with Mrs Moneypenny' is being staged by Assembly, one of the stalwarts of the Edinburgh Fringe. Celebrating 30 years as one of the premiere venues at the world's leading arts festival, Assembly has brought together an anniversary programme that celebrates the best in theatre, comedy, dance, music and family
Across an overall programme totalling 120 shows hosted in 10 performance spaces, the 30th anniversary highlights include a number big names such as Simon Callow, Frank Skinner, Jo Brand, Alistair McGowan, Mel Smith and Gyles Brandreth.
