Terrence the T-Rex
About the Show
Terrence returns to the stage ready to take the world by storm, secure his Netflix deal and inspire a new wave of kids to take an interest in dinosaurs. The world, however, has other plans for Terrence. He’s stuck in a cycle of messy break ups, living with his parents, and being treated like a joke by everyone who sees his handmade, and to scale, t-rex costume.

'Absolutely adored @AproposTheatre ’s Terrence The T-Rex today! Incredibly sweet deconstruction of rom-com tropes against the background of some truly phenomenal dinosaur puns! Cannot recommend enough'
'Some brilliant laughs at #TerrenceTheTrex from @AproposTheatre today. A kind of comedy anti rom-com with a dino theme. Great way to end my trip!'
'Terrence the T-Rex is great fringe show, taking some very simple elements and a straightforward (if rather off the wall) story and cleverly crafting an hour of gentle comedy around them. It’s clearly written and performed with care, making it a great watch.'
'The niche world of dinosaur impersonators is revealed, like a fun BBC sitcom waiting to picked up, in Alex Zawalnyski and Clara Wessely’s surreal, funny and quintessentially Fringe show.'
The Wee Review - ★★★★
'a funny, sweet anti-romcom with a winning pair of performers. This is the kind of surprise find the Fringe is all about.'
