FringeReview UK 2021

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Even more than 2019, a carnival riot of joy – with enough misdirection to evoke moonshine


Adorable Dora

Consummate, the complete Dolly-d up experience.


and breathe…

Yomi Sode’s hybrid theatre is a compelling immersion of witness and poetry: we need more of it.


Branching Out

Three very fine and one outstanding work, Scratches – the best kind of play on depression, self-harm, black holes. Because it’s screamingly funny and deeply connected to why we do theatre.


Dazzling Divas

Issy Van Randwyck brings seven divas to life in this paean to tragic fulfilment.


Hamlet

Jumbo’s Hamlet strips out accretions and ghosts you into asking who or what Hamlet is. See it if you possibly can.


Hymn

Its potency lies in a fine peeling apart by Adrian Lester and Danny Sapini, and the language that bridges it.


Last Easter

After all the uproar, it’s a quiet blinder.


Living Newspaper #6

Like all the Royal Court’s Living Newspaper series, we need this. Watch what this does with the future


Macbeth

Building out of Macbeth a recurring epic of structural violence not ended with one overthrow, sets the seal on this outstanding production.


Music For Rooftops

On the roof, balcony and terrace, a brass extravaganza


Ode to Joyce

A gem of an incarnation.


Paradise

A sleeping classic in the making


Romeo and Juliet

A fleet, brilliantly upending, wholly relevant take on the Verona-ready toxicity feeding male violence and young depression


The Love and War Trilogy

An enormously satisfying traversal


The Shock of the Old

A wryly consummate musician.


Tom Lehrer

Another sovereign tribute. Stefan Bednarczyk brings Tom Lehrer swaggering out of retirement.  


Twelfth Night

With Michelle Terry as Viola, one of the most touching and truthful Twelfth Nights I’ve seen.


Vagabonds My Phil Lynott Odyssey

An original off-kilter approach to elegy, tribute and becoming yourself.
