Brighton Year-Round 2021

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Outdoors, this has grown prodigously. Some actors give transcendent performances up there with London’s finest. Out in the slant air this proves magical.

Absent Friends

If you can book, beg or otherwise snaffle a ticket, you won’t find a more satisfying production anywhere in Brighton this month. Outstanding.

Blithe Spirit

The final moments stamp an interesting if curious revival.

Di and Viv and Rose

A first-rate revival of this heartwarming play, surprising you with grief, and joy


You should see this with some fine acting and a storyline making more sense of Dracula than Stoker does himself.


Then it was DDT. Now it’s personal.

Richard II

One of OFS’s strongest productions, it’s also a return to roots.

The Chalk Garden

Not quite the last drawing-room comedy. But the Janus-faced prophesy of plays that took thirty years to catch up.

The Merchant of Venice

This production needs a run. It’s potentially a great interpretation.

The Merry Wives of Windsor

A Shakespeare classic with surprising contemporary relevance.

The Tempest

Café Voltaire in ruffs invokes a magical Tempest.

Twelfth Night

A revelatory, energised Twelfth Night.
