Fringe Review





One of the ‘Best Duos at Edinburgh Fringe’

The Scotsman


Thick ‘n’ Fast presents Not Quite, a fast-paced physical comedy about the interview process and the struggle to prove one’s worth.

Intent on making a good first impression, two naïve young hopefuls pursue the seemingly impossible feat of cracking the job market. With fingers crossed, strong handshakes and uncomfortable footwear, Cassie and Georgie will overcome every setback to get onto the career ladder. 

Questioning how we define worth and deal with rejection, Not Quite brings the surreal, absurd and tragic nature of the selection process to life, tapping into the vulnerability and tedium of the job hunt from both sides of the interview table.
