HAVE you ever watched a romantic comedy and wondered ‘Could that actually happen in real life?’?
Former Lancaster Girls Grammar School pupil Lizzy Mace and her friend Juliette Burton did. And the pair, who together form comedy duo Mace and Burton, decided to take the rom coms for a road test as part of a light-hearted look at love on the silver screen.
The results can be seen at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which runs August 6-27 August (except on Tuesdays)
The inspiration came from a summer calendar so filled with weddings, that Lizzy felt like she was living in a certain Richard Curtis film.
Meanwhile Juliette Burton had been asked to be a bridesmaid so many times, she began to feel like she was in 27 Dresses.
Like their kindred spirit Bridget Jones, they curled up on their sofas in their pyjamas and began to sing along to All By Myself.
