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.


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


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


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.

Ensembouquet – Flute Violin & Piano Recital

A consummate recital of mostly rare works

Finding Grace

A fascinating "tragi-comic solo performance about a writer who is looking for ‘Grace’.

Ghost Boy: a playwright’s progress

If you want a single account of the heady days of 1960s-70s British theatre, this has to be it


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

Michele Roszak and Lynda Spinney: Spring’s Arrival

A terrific way to blow the cherry blossom

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 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.


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