Brighton Fringe 2021

After All These Years

A superb play, it should as one director present said, be in the West End. With these actors.

Bag Lady

This could develop into something special. Thoroughly recommended as an industrial-strength ice-breaker.

Bertolt Wrecked

Tales by ordinary folk - in a not-so-ordinary world.

Bette: Bathhouse to Broadway!

One of the most musically satisfying, funny, filthy and inclusive tribute acts of its kind.

Between Two Waves

A play about the Climate Crisis, family, photography and being screwed by insurance.

Chamberlain: Peace in Our Time

A light-filled small gem of a show, tuning into wireless crystals of a lost world.

Clean: The Musical

This should be in the West End

Deaf Ears: How I Learned To Hear

Friedman’s a spellbinding storyteller in the lives he’s immersed himself in listening to.

Dirty Tricks: How the Illusionati Rule the World

Revealed, the secret cabal of magicians that rule the world

Fiction Romance

Now the way to think of Twelfth Night’s Antonio

Gilbert and Sullivan’s Improbable New Musical: … and Helen

Comedy musical, a slice of G&S history through parody and song - uplifting!

Glenda and Rita Live at The Rialto

Alexander Joseph and Ro Robertson team return in triumph.

Harvey Greenfield is Running Late

You can't please all of the people all of the time

I Am Echoborg

Still a groundbreaking show

Jekyll & Hyde

The most viscerally convulsive realisation of Jekyll or Hyde imaginable

Julius Caesar

A fleet powerful Julius Caesar, with some outstanding performances

Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons

Think Nick Payne’s Constellations meets Zamyatin’s We. If you love new theatre, worth queuing for returns.

Mayhem at the Cabaret Voltaire

Potentially a terrific show


Love and The Labyrinth

Moveable Feast

It’s time for Planes, Trains and Automob-meals

Rebel Boob

Based on interviews with women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.


An adult take on sex and relationships

Sitting Pretty

When you see this show return, it’ll be outstanding, and in the frame for awards.

The Final Problem

This is certainly the way to experience The Final Problem.

The Lady in the Van

Sarah Mann and her company will surely return with this gem of transubstantiation.

The Marching SKAletons and Dead Beat Poets

An 8-piece day of the dead inspired parade band plus the Dead Beat Poets

The Night

After hours cabaret show

The Sensemaker

An astonishing, disturbing shapeshifting sliver of genius.

The Three Graces

Greek mythology in a Brighton garden.

The True Story of the Little Girl who thought she was The Second Coming of Jesus Christ

Every little girl dreams of being special, but Ellie Rose doesn’t just dream – she knows she’s special.

The Vertical Hour

The definitive Fringe revival of a mainstream play this year. Absorbing, baggy, intimate. See it.

There’s a Ghost in My House

Stunning. Greet the nothing that is not there, and the nothing that is.

Under Heaven’s Eyes

Dynamic, provocative, emotive and heartfelt performance and writing.


‘YOU’ is about loss and the way it has shaped Kathleen's life.
