FringeReview UK 2022

Cancelling Socrates

Howard Brenton touching eighty is at the height of his powers. Tom Littler has assembled a pitch-perfect cast, reuniting two from his outstanding All’s Well. This too.


Cluedo

An object lesson in comic timing; a steep cut above the ‘real’ whodunnits we’re likely to see this year or next.


How It Is Part 2

Immersive, outstanding, unrepeatable and unimaginable anywhere else


Jack Absolute Flies Again

What Richard Bean and Oliver Chris manage is homage, both to Sheridan’s shade, his early bawdy, and despite anything a memorial to those who laughed at themselves to death. A must-see.


Orlando

A gem of a production, Taylor McClaine a soaring talent to watch.


The Dance of Death

Highlights the truth of its bleak laughter. Humane Strindberg. Now there’s a thing.


The Poison Belt

So what could a Sussex-based sci-fi tale of 1913 by Conan Doyle – a space-borne poison belt of gas that hits the earth – possibly have to do with the week of the greatest temperatures known in the UK?


When We Dead Awaken

Ibsen’s elusive masterpiece is so rarely performed seeing it is an imperative. Played with such authority as here, in Norwegian and English, it’s not a luxury but a must-see.
