Fringe Pick: The Speed Of Surprise!, A Vintage Sci-Fi Comedy On Stage At The Adrienne Theater September 2-10

After last year’s sold-out performances, The Groundswell Players are returning to the Fringe with their newest creation, The Speed of Surprise!, taking audiences back to “the silver screen days of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers.”

The show tells the tale of four intergalactic assassins zooming through the void. Watch as the team negotiates the cosmos in a vintage sci-fi tale sure to satisfy audiences of all stripes.

Word of warning: the play will feature a giant laser gun, crab men and sleeping pods, so get your spacesuit ready.

Helmed by director Charlotte Ford, staged at the Adrienne Theater September 2-10 in collaboration with The Hacktory, the show is a can’t-miss Fringe Pick.

You can get tickets online.
