FringeReview UK 2019

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

A carnival riot of joy – with enough misdirection to evoke moonshine


Absurd Person Singular

With vintage Ayckbourn funny is devastating. Vintage BLT too.


After Edward

This has to be the smartest debut from this venue since Jessica Swales’ Bluestockings: no wonder the playscripts sold out early.


Anon Look About You

Exceptional and vibrant, the company prove it’s one to revive.


As You Like It

A heartwarming revival. Jack Laskey, Bettrys Jones and Nadia Nadarajah have made a space for this As You Like It well beyond its initial moment last year.


Avenue Q

A first-rate revival


Bartholomew Fair

If only one could see it twice: but try it at least once.


Benidorm Live

Heartwarming. It has the brash conviction of it origins, out and proud of it.


Club Tropicana The Musical

They deliver, in Costa Blanca spades.


Dark Sublime

Renders complex sexual feeling and friendship with the grace of the everyday


Don’t Dress for Dinner

For a farce there’s only one spot of monotony. That’s how uniformly outstanding this is.


George A Greene, The Pinner of Wakefield

We now know more of Greene than upstart crows


hello/goodbye

You must queue to see this. It’s quite wonderful.


Henry IV Part 2 or Falstaff

The triumph of this newly-energized production is bringing the darker Falstaff to a diverse audience


INK Festival Feast From the East

I’ve not seen a festival of short plays to compare with these.


Loving Androids

A beautifully-constructed play, small in compass, big in scope and deft at managing the transitions


Tartuffe

Prepare to be Tartuffed.


The Full Monty

Unmissable in this – er, newly enhanced production.


The Merry Wives of Windsor

The most cogent, most fun at the Globe this year.


The Ministry of Biscuits

It is the definitive musical about biscuits


The Sad Shepherd

A necessary production you’re unlikely ever to see anywhere else.


The Taming of The Shrew

Highlight how good the play is just where we’re not looking for it


While the Sun Shines

An outstanding revival.


Wit and Science

They render a faint scroll alive with wit
