Fringe Online 2021

Adventurous

A play gently subverting all expectations. Feeling Adventurous? You should.


Aphrodite

Dazzling: wise, clever twists about choice, male determination, and consequence.


Hymn

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


I Know The Truth

Immersive, provocative and meaningful!


I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical

Flawless, a stunning pocket-sized musical you really must see.


Icarus

After all the gods and their lack of choice, we come to the final instalment, the human dimension. Where we have one. A heartfelt, satisfying finish.


Illusions of Liberty

A finely-calibrated solo play of what it’s like to enter that tunnel of near-undiagnosable but very real illness. Corinne Walker’s both authoritative and quicksilver. Do catch it.


Jew… ish

One of the wittiest but also truthful comedies about love, identity, sexual politics and gefilte fish I’ve seen


Living Newspaper #3 Royal Court Theatre

Hot off Sloane Square a team of writers, actors and creatives twist the news to truth


Living Newspaper #4

We need this. Watch.


Living Newspaper #6

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


Lockdown, Taboo and You

Four fine lockdown plays on zoom


New Moon Monologues April

As we saw in March, don’t be lulled by friendly colours and fluffy fonts. Queens of Cups again proves they’re a company to revel with and wait for heart-stopping reveals


Orpheus

A terrific reinvention, bringing gods and heroines up from the death of myth to an altered world.


Outside

As with Inside, Outside not only fits us, they help us to move on, and become in their modest, unassuming and utterly transcendent way, part of how we learn to.


Persephone

Dazzling: wise, clever twists about choice, male determination, and consequence.


Plays for Today

A truly absorbing series. And free to stream on Soundcloud.


Pygmalion

The most profound reinvention of this particular myth I’ve seen


Rapunzel

A great festive tale, told with gusto and guile


Sacrament

A revelation, superbly written and acted. Comparisons have been made with A Girl Is A Half-formed Thing. I can think of no higher praise either. You must see this.


Scaramouche Jones

Shane Ritchie’s phenomenal energy and slidings in and out of tongues, mesmerises.


Stay Awake, Jake

Once you tune in, you’ll be held all the way to Carlisle.


Three Stages

Three musings on loss and bereavement beautifully captured in poetry, monologue and song.


Typical

How British society stereotypes Black masculinity.


Vespertilio

Vespertilio marks Barry McStay’s emergence as a writer of distinction. Anything he writes now should be looked out for.
