Welcome

THE ALL-NEW SHOW FOR EDINBURGH FRINGE 2019.

The future is uncertain. Does that thrill you or terrify you? Do you seize opportunities, or feel ‘At Risk’?



After the “exponentially funny” Your Days Are Numbered and the “spectacularly entertaining” Brainsex, Timandra Harkness is back to play with risk. Where will it end? That depends on the audience, the choices you make and the chances you take.

In fact, there’s a 1 in 2,985,984 chance you’ll have to do the show yourselves. But that’s basically one in three million, so that’s never going to happen, right?

Caution: Take A Risk probably includes graphs and gambling, songs, jokes and electric shocks. But we can’t be certain.

We’re often wrong about risk. Did you know that:

• Four in five people killed by lightning are men?
• Flying to California is twice as risky as two hours inside Chernobyl nuclear power plant?
• Since the UK population is 66 million, a “one in three million” chance will happen to 22 people?

If the idea of an entertaining exploration into how we understand the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune takes your fancy, why not ‘take a risk’ yourself and buy a ticket?
