Captain Morgan 2: The Sea of Souls by Tap Tap Theatre at the Pleasance Dome

From the boys that brought you ‘Captain Morgan 1: The Sands of Time’ comes their follow up, ‘The Sea of Souls’. Part of Tap Tap Theatre, these lads bring you a high-powered, fast-paced, action-packed adventure comedy all in the space of an hour.

Performed at the Pleasance Dome, the premise is simple. Two actors perform a host of different characters while a third performer plays music to accompany the adventure. All three performers were extremely talented, and the laughs did not stop rolling in.

One performer seems to have the most elastic of faces, contorting it into many different shapes in a manner not dissimilar to the great Jim Carrey. The fact that both actors were dripping with sweat at the end of the show is testament to how much energy they put into their performances. Both were literally jumping from character to character as Captain Morgan and his rum crew try to reclaim Morgan’s soul from the dastardly World Association of Time Continuum Handlers (WATCH).

The music was fantastic, provided by the violinist come accordion-thingist. Adding effects to his music with with some tech, he managed to create the perfect mood for wherever Captain Morgan found himself.

Non-stop entertainment and laughs from these guys. Get on down and see it. And if you want the full experience catch the revival of their 2013 Edinburgh show ‘Captain Morgan 1′ at the same location, on different days.
