Brighton Fringe 2022
A thoroughly absorbing play whose polemical agency is none the less tempered by the people it’s refracted through.
A superb revival of Bartlett’s warmest, most ground-breaking, perhaps most enduring play so far.
Bonkers brilliance. Cocky couldn’t have been premiered with two more stunning actors, and the author’s flawless stepping-in remains remarkable.
Raine balances articulate ferocity with its opposite: a broken plea. Scott Roberts’ revival improves on the NT premiere. In his hands Consent’s a small classic.
Future Pub by Small Acts
Acting here is tighter than any version I’ve seen. This revival of a modern classic has to be the best of the Fringe so far.
Exceptional, both as dramatic writing, design and performance.
Brand new show by performance makers Jon Haynes and David Woods
There’s a great act struggling out of this blissfully baggy monster.
