An invigorating not to say complicit evening by the end. Whilst I have questions about the limits of the texts used, and the understanding of how the texts developed and still – with some academics – the deeper questions of syntax which some adaptors clearly work with – this is exciting.
As a condensation and enactment of Woolf’s seminal text this can’t be improved on. The outstanding one-person show I’ve seen this Fringe.
Review: How It Is Part 2
Immersive, outstanding, unrepeatable and unimaginable anywhere else
Review: Troy Story
Again the most educative stand-up and a thrilling presentation. Oh and bloody funny on war, male sexuality and the Bechdel Test.
A professional-standard production, and magnificent start to the 2020s.
An ideal inhabiting of Blake
A true Pre-Raphaelite gem-lit recital.
Review: Wilde Without the Boy
A jewel of inhabiting
Review: Mayhem at the Cabaret Voltaire
Potentially a terrific show
Review: Sci-Fi Poetry
Utterly refreshing, breaking new ground.
The most educative stand-up and a thrilling presentation. Oh and bloody funny on the tragedies.
Imaginative, Exquisitely Haunting and Moving - Visual Storytelling at its best!
Review: The Odyssey
A stupendous undertaking
Don’t take your Nan to this show.
Review: John Greening The Silence
The Crypt organisers as well as John Greening really have hit on an ideal recitation.
In nearly every way an outstanding pair of productions.
Review: The Odditorium
An eclectic mix of strange and unusual entertainment
Review: Your Alice
A trip down the Rabbit Hole like you've never seen.
Review: The Terrors of the Night
Nashe’s 1594 The Terrors of the Night directed by Jason Morell is a stunning one-off. This imaginative enterprise should be developed perhaps with at least one more actor, and certainly enjoy a niche run. It’s a triumph (both early modern and modern senses!) viscerally realized here with music and floating candles. Let it again feast our horrors, curiosity and uneasy laughter.
A one woman show following wives through history, art and legend
Review: The View from Castle Rock
A story that is both touching and at times humorous.
Review: Brideshead Revisited
Bryony Lavery’s adaptation of Brideshead, the first for the stage dazzles with stagecraft and storyline but something’s lost tail-chasing the detail.
Review: Loud Poets
Bold, loud, passionate and engaging – poetry for the masses with a wonderful energy
A thought provoking, funny and moving performance by a masterful story teller, requiring us to think carefully about death and dying before it is too late.
A dynamic and gripping production.
Review: Under Milk Wood (Semi Skimmed)
Guy Masterson's legendary performance in 60 minutes
Review: Jon Ronson Literature Talk
An amusing and lively talk about Frank Sidebottom
A highly amusing trip through the mind of a slightly twisted comic genius
