Acclaimed Comedia Sara Pascoe brings “Sara Pascoe: LadsLadsLads” to Brighton

FringeReview often features the work of this writer, actor and comedian at the Edinburgh Fringe and we are delighted to see her bringing her new show to the Dome. “Sara Pascoe is enjoying a year-long, one woman stag-do.

From spiritual retreats, city-breaks, life-drawing classes and football matches; she has been drunk and lonely everywhere.”

Sara Pascoe is a very accessible comedy. Being a writer and an actor she also brings theatricality to her work and there’s a depth to the writing that can range from light-funny to sharp and hard-hitting. Well worth seeing.

Award-winning, riveting Physical-Dance Theatre comes to the Dome at the end of March. ”

COAL was “…created to mark the 30th anniversary of the end of the 1984/5 British miners’ strike, award winning choreographer Gary Clarke proudly presents COAL, a riveting dance theatre show which takes an nostalgic look at the hard hitting realities of life at the coal face.

Bringing together Clarke’s striking physical language performed by a company of 7 stunning professional dancers and a live brass band, COAL is a nostalgic, moving and ever-relevant exploration of community, solidarity and survival.”

Put Some Top-Drawer Comedy Improvisation On Your Radar









Some sult-comedy improv arrives at the Dome later in the year but we think you should consider booking early. FringeReview has reviewed Austentious in the past and are happy to highly tecommend it.

“Every show a new Jane Austen novel is made up on the spot, based on a title suggested by an audience member and pulled at random out of a basket… No real knowledge of Jane Austen is required to appreciate Austentatious… I think most people will agree that Jane Austen’s previously undiscovered novels are much, much more hilarious, though slightly less well plotted, than the six published books we know and love. Non-stop jokes keep the audience laughing throughout, and the show is highly entertaining and enjoyable.” (Glenys McIntyre, FringeReview)

Thow isn’t until  September but I’d get your booking in early to avoid disappointment.
