Terrence the T-Rex

About the Show

All Terrence wants is to "make it" as a dinosaur entertainer, land a Netflix deal, and get his ex back. The world, however, has other plans. He’s stuck in a messy cycle of rejection, failure, and being laughed at for his handmade (and to scale) T-Rex costume. When Tri-Sarah-Tops comes along, Terrence begins to question everything that he thought was important to him. This ‘funny, sweet anti-romcom’ (**** is like a ‘fun BBC sitcom waiting to be picked up' (Scotsman).

'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 Scotsman

'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.'
