Brighton Year-Round 2022

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

An exciting sense of being at the cusp of a new generation. There’s no knowing where this Dream might end.


An Hour and a Half Late

Don’t miss this authentic, touching, devastatingly comic anatomy of a marriage as soufflé, supremely served by Rhys-Jones and Dee.


Anne Boleyn

If it’s drama you’re after in Brighton Fringe, this is one of the two or three essential stops. Thrilling, authoritative, with Greene the jewel in a sparkling ensemble.


Astra

There’s nothing remotely like it and Foyle’s team have broken through to the stars.


Beautiful

Outstanding, and outstandingly transferred as a tour that brings its stature with it.


Calendar Girls the Musical

Could be seen in the West End. See it here


Cock

A superb revival of Bartlett’s warmest, most ground-breaking, perhaps most enduring play so far.


Dad’s Army

You feel you’ve been part of an invited audience at one of the original TV productions


Dark Sublime

Sublime acting, light-filled production. Do see this quirky, off-beat play given its finest outing so far.


Death And The Maiden

A torturer's past catches up with him


Death and the Maiden

Groundbreaking. Do see this.


Hangmen

Assured, idiomatic performances. And Martin McDonagh’s distinction resonates in a manner peculiar to him alone.


Hay Fever

An exceptional production in so many ways, this Hay Fever boasts some superb acting, on occasion great aplomb


Private Lives

Private Lives can never disappoint: it plays itself and as far as it’s a work of verbal tennis this production won’t pall either


Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Ask yourself this. If there were no praise or blame – who would I be?


Sheila’s Island

It’s a play you wish well


Spirit of Woodstock 2 – The Sequel

There’s no greater writer/performer working in Brighton, or Sussex, and Spirit of Woodstock Parts I and 2 is Jonathan Brown’s most dazzling show to date.


The Da Vinci Code

Actually improves on Brown with theatrical humour and bold gestures; with a set that tells the story almost as much as the strong cast.


The Homecoming

Simply put: go see this if you’ve any feeling for postwar drama. It’s theatre on the rack and do we need it!


The Railway Children

A whooping whistlestop of a classic


The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice sings out of damage into heartbreak and redemption. Those who don’t know the play or its outcome should see this, even those who have.


Two Halves of Guinness

A Masterclass in presentation and portrayal


Unsanctioned/Measure 2 Measure

You must see this intriguing, ingenious and superbly acted double bill.


Waitress

Halfpenny raises soaring music theatre, an ounce of gold in the throat and stars six inches above it.
