Brighton Fringe 2018

1984

If you can catch this in the Fringe, you’ll have seen one of the best things in it.


About A Revolution

A century after the Russian Revolution - where is Revolution today?


Antigone Alone

Antigone did what she knew had to be done ...


Antony and Cleopatra

A morality tale - with snakes.


Bear North

Do come if you want charm, unpredictable choruses and weather. And where else can you see a dancing bear not even brushed backwards in the making of this show?


Behind Our Skin

The allies we make when we want to live together.


Caitlin

H​ighly charged, hugely energized and utterly committed


Coldstream: Critical Threat

"A poignant, contemporary, powerfully evocative play asking some uncomfortable questions"


Franz Kaka: Apparatus

Your invitation to attend an execution


Groomed

A powerful and devastatingly personal piece of storytelling


King Charles III

This is an outstanding production, one of the two or three finest amateur ones I’ve ever seen. It can hold its head amongst consummate professional ones.


Lana Trotovsek and Yoko Misumi

Lana Trotovsek and Yoko Misumi are a compelling duo, and I’ve not heard violin playing of that force and character for a long time.


Laud of the Rings

This show deserves to go on the Road - ever, ever, on.


Le Foulard

Fabulous surreal comedy


Medea

A twentieth century adaption by Jean Anouilh


Meera Maharaj (flute) and Dominic Degavino (piano)

One of the most exciting flute recitals I’ve attended. Maharaj is back on September 20th at All Saints.


Metamorphosis

If you decide on one storytelling piece of theatre in this half of the Fringe, I doubt you’ll do better than experience this.


Myra

A 20th Century icon brought to life.


Notorious Women of Brighton

To Miss This Tour-De-Force Would Be Scandalous


One Woman Alien

I can predict that by the end of its run, this should be the most outstanding one-person show you’ll see in the last week.


Oskar’s Amazing Adventure

Oskar's a lovable puppy, living out life in Switzerland with a myriad of other creatures and, of course, a grandmother.


Pigspurt’s Daughter

Guardian obituary, 2008. ‘Ken Campbell was one of the most original and unclassifiable talents in British theatre of the past half-century.’ It just happens that his daughter Daisy is both that and far more. She’s one of the most cunning crafters of comedy and storytelling in the anti-business


Police Cops in Space

Full-on wacky energy with impressive physical theatre and dance.


Proxy

Caroline Burns Cooke uses storytelling and physical performance to breath life into this true story of Munchausen by proxy.


Rope

A passionless, motiveless, faultless and clueless murder ... but is it perfect?


She Wolf

So what did Harvey Weinstein and the fifteenth century European ruling classes have in common? Exactly. A lot. English has achieved a phenomenal amount. She co-ordinates everything as she directs and manages her own minimal props.


Shostakovich 24 Preludes and Fugues

Powell makes more of the interconnectedness of this music perhaps than anyone since Tatiana Nikolayeva, and more lucidly than anybody ever. Acclimatising himself to the St Michael’s acoustics he delivered something extraordinary.


The Erebus Project

"an engaging, interesting, disturbing, provocative piece of theatre."


The Jurassic Parks

A masterclass in storytelling using physical theatre, puppetry, song and dance, and audience interaction


The Looker

A show about freedom. Funny, subversive, deeply philosophical - and beautiful.


The Maids

Genet's masterpiece in a new translation


The Odditorium Tribute to Ken Campbell

of you and won’t let go. Most theatre makers of whatever stripe are pretty clear Ken’s a game changer.


The Polished Scar

Nobody likes to be treated like a child


The Sorrowful Tale of Sleeping Sidney

This is a gem of many colours. Do see it. The miraculous construction’s matched by Jordan’s storytelling and sense of dark mischief. In Jordan’s hands it’s a re-possession of lost innocence by a strange sleight of a knowing child.


The Start of Something

A finely crafted set of interwoven monologues telling three women’s stories of love and loss


Under The Skin

An uninvited journalist knocks on the door of a Holocaust survivor, for an unexpected interview.


Waiting For Curry

Susanne Crosby’s Waiting for is a four-hander with a social reckoning, and very unexpected plot point. The audience was packed. There’s a quietly sad magic to this low-key play; people recognize themselves in it. It speaks.


Whaddya Know – We’re In Love!

There’s first-class musical entertainment here, crouched under the disguise of a schoolboy plot. Irresistible.


When the Wind Blows

BLT have produced in less than two weeks two outstandingly fine full-length productions. This latest offering confirms this theatre’s confidence in producing stark contrasts: an unfashionable yet horribly topical drop of silence into a bustling city.


Woyzeck

Inside the head of a madman.
