MoMentum: A Motivational Mind-Reading Experience MoMental

4 stars The premise for MoMentum sounds wacky at first – but it turns out to be an inspiring, uplifting, and gently intriguing show. Styling himself "the MoMentalist", Phil Ainsworth combines two genres not often seen together: motivational speaking, and the branch of stage magic known as mentalism. So, as he explains at the outset, he's on a mission to help us overcome the sticking-points in our lives… but he'll be reading our minds as well. Read the full review.

Experience the power of a live motivational mind-reading show! Combining techniques used by motivational speakers, magicians, and stage mind-readers, Phil Ainsworth is 'The MoMentalist'; inspiring and encouraging audiences to live in the MoMent.

Be amazed and motivated: This is your MoMent!

Mobile The Paper Birds

5 stars Shows in unorthodox spaces are a staple delight of the Fringe, and this year we have Mobile, performed to a tiny audience in a caravan parked up beside the Warren. The caravan doesn't actually go anywhere; the play is about being "socially mobile", and it's based around interviews with a group of men and women who've achieved that much-vaunted goal. Each is wealthier, better-connected, and better-educated than their parents – and each feels a sense of conflict now, proud of their roots yet sensing that somehow they've moved on. Read the full review.

Co-commissioned by Live Theatre/The Marlowe Theatre. A Paper Birds production.

We are taught from a young age to aim high, to reach for the stars, to want more, more than our parents, more than the generations before us, to climb the social ladder. But as we surge forward, what are we leaving behind? And from our ladder in the stars, if we look back, what do we see?

An intimate 40-minute theatre show set in a caravan, based on interviews conducted in communities across the UK.

“Mobile neatly turns the caravan into a magic box where every cupboard and drawer springs a surprise” (The Guardian).

3:40pm to 5:00pm
The Forecast Limbik

4 stars The Forecast is a strange, strange play – but it's that kind of strangeness which goes from being perplexing, to making a kind of sense, to suddenly seeming the most natural thing in the world. It's performed by four women who look like they're hanging in mid-air; mounted on wheeled platforms and thrust into over-size white dresses, their diverse identities are all but stripped away. But as the play shows us, the power of human empathy is far harder to disguise. Read the full review.

In a backyard near you, in the not-too distant future, a clutch of women from far-flung corners of the globe float in mid-air. They have a new job: human garden ornament.

As the reality of what they have signed up for, and who they are literally stuck with becomes clear, what unites and divides them will be paramount as they struggle to endure the ordeal.

Inspired in part by George Saunders' 'The Semplica Girl Diaries', Limbik’s latest show weaves stories, songs, secrets, and shadows into a bold, bonkers prediction for the days ahead.

3:45pm to 4:30pm

Eglantyne Ms Chamberlain Presents

3 stars A studied, detailed one-woman production, Eglantyne tells the life story of Eglantyne Jebb – co-founder of the charity Save The Children, and original author of what's now the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child. In character as Eglantyne, actor Anne Chamberlain takes us back to the early 1900's, talking us through the activist's life story and drawing occasional parallels with her own experiences across the globe in New Zealand. Read the full review.

Inspiring solo play about Eglantyne Jebb, a courageous, passionate, Edwardian human rights activist.

From her idyllic Shropshire childhood, Eglantyne went on to Oxford University, heartbreaks, suffrage rallies, the Balkans, arrest in Trafalgar Square, spiritualism, co-founding Save the Children, and pioneering children's rights.

“Written with wit and buoyancy, and delivered in fine style."

“Studied and heartfelt portrayal ... engaging, informative and very entertaining”.

Written and performed by Anne Chamberlain, directed by KC Kelly.

Father God Palmer Presents

'Father God' is a family sitcom based on the Holy Trinity in the preceding 3,000 years before Jesus came to earth. It is a hilarious voyage through the Old Testament as told by God themselves. At its heart, it's about how a single dad (God) manages two teenagers (also God) finding their way in a universe they also created. It's written by former Latest 7 columnist and comedy writer, Tasha Dhanraj. This performance will be the directing debut of ArtsEd trained actress, Eleanor Palmer. "Genuinely funny and notably intelligent... Dhanraj's gentle satire was a delectable treat" (Cherwell)

5:10pm to 6:10pm
Fall of Duty Behind The Lines

3 stars For the last few years, Behind The Lines have been carving out a very specific, but very successful niche for themselves – exploring the golden age of music-hall, bringing stars of the past back to life. This year's show follows the same familiar pattern, but there's one crucial difference from what's come before. Because this time round, regular Ali Child is joined on stage by her real-life son Harry… and this time round, the performer they celebrate is a man. Read the full review.

Behind The Lines earned 4* from us for each of their past two productions - All The Nice Girls and yesterday's Sure Choice, Deep In The Heart Of Me. This one sounds a bit different though: a mother-and-son collaboration, it's a semi-autobiographical show tackling war, non-conformism, elections – and an old-time forces sweetheart. It remains to be seen what this all adds up to, but on past form we can expect an unconventional story whose tenderness belies a sharper edge.

1916. An actor falls from the sky in Northern France. A hundred years on, can Sue and her son Jack, 20, escape political turmoil and an addiction to infinite warfare? Four people thrust together by war, song, reality, and escapism, but pulled apart by a century.

The true story of Basil Hallam and Forces’ sweetheart, lesbian, Elsie Janis, recreating ‘Gilbert the Filbert the Knut with the ‘k’’.

Nominated for Best LGBTQ+ Show Brighton Fringe 2016 for ‘Deep in The Heart of Me’, “incredibly enjoyable, endearing, utterly believable” (Arts Award Voice), "The sweetest of Fringe treats" (Fringe Guru).

5:30pm to 6:40pm
Protect and Survive TBC Audio

4 stars If you remember the Eighties, you probably remember Protect and Survive – a notoriously grim government pamphlet telling citizens what to expect during a nuclear war. This intelligently-constructed play recreates some of that Cold War terror, and reminds us of a truth we seem in danger of forgetting: that there are still weapons against which we cannot protect, and wars which we cannot survive. Read the full review.

With the Fringe settling into a comfortable rhythm, it's a good time to take a risk on something (relatively) unknown. I've plumped for Protect And Survive, whose title references a notorious handbook on enduring nuclear war; themed around a role-play simulation for an attack on the UK, it aims to remind us that the threat of nuclear Armageddon is still very real. The producer previously worked on Threads, a famously bleak post-apocalyptic drama filmed at the height of the Cold War.

1984. The doomsday clock stands at 23:57. Five strangers take part in exercise ‘HOT SEAT’, a role-play simulation for a pre- and post-nuclear attack on the UK. In 2017, the doomsday clock, once again, reads 23:57 and the game becomes reality!

"Unchecked climate change, global nuclear weapons modernizations, and outsized nuclear weapons arsenals pose extraordinary and undeniable threats to the continued existence of humanity.” (Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists 2016).

Inspired by the BBC film 'Threads'. From the producer of Neil Gaiman & Dave McKean’s ‘Mirrormask’ & 'Luna'.

5:30pm to 6:30pm
Get Fit With Bruce Willis Two Foolish

Disco flirts with 'Die Hard' in new comedy drama 'Get Fit With Bruce Willis' – or 'How Jimmy Somerville Saved My Life'.

An ageing Jimmy Somerville impersonator sells his soul to the devil – in the shape of a Yorkshire granny – in return for fame, sex, and money. But his wife, tired of being ignored, is finding love and lust in the arms of a hunky office junior. Desperate for success, he gives himself a week to get fit like Bruce Willis.

In the end he realises he has to stand up for himself – with the help of Jimmy Somerville and Doctor Seuss.

5:40pm to 6:40pm
Oli Bettesworth: Sunshine & Lollipops (& a Creeping Sense of Existential Terror) Oli Bettesworth

Visit "the shadowy lowlands of Oli Bettesworth’s psyche" (Chortle) as, hurtling unjustly past 30, he wrestles to make sense of the cruel apathy of a vast meaningless universe (and his own rapidly expanding gut). Weary and anxious beyond his years, he mixes confessional storytelling, deadpan absurdism and explosive vitriol in an honest, hilarious and sometimes painful stand-up show which asks: why can’t everyone love you as much as you hate them?

"A gem. Beautiful language concealing hilarious suckerpunches" (Dan Antopolski), "Bitterly funny" (Jon Aird, BBC Comedy).

6:00pm to 6:50pm
Adam Scott Vincent: The Scared and Lonely Tour (work in progress) Adam Vincent

Adam Scott Vincent is a core writer of Channel 4’s award-winning satirical show 'The Last Leg'. He was a semi-finalist in NBC’s 'Last Comic Standing' and is a regular Brighton Fringe favourite.

"Hilariously irreverent... Vincent is undeniably one of the more talented comedians I have seen at the Fringe" (Broadway Baby), "This Australian gem forced to live in Bedford where he can’t escape the clutches of marriage, children and monthly payments to the man... ultimately, it’s delivered with compassion. You will feel the laughs the day after" (The Bullman blog).

6:00pm to 7:00pm
Gratiano Grist To The Mill Productions Ltd

Bassanio has been murdered and, under suspicion, Gratiano is forced to revisit his Fascist past. He was never the hero – just a minor character, the plucky comic relief – but he never thought he played the villain.

Set in post war Italy this challenging sequel to William Shakespeare's 'The Merchant of Venice' explores the politics of prejudice in the modern age, and asks just how Mussolini managed to use democracy to turn a people against themselves.

***** (British Theatre Guide), **** (ThreeWeeks).

From the team behind 'The Unknown Soldier'.

BLINDFOLD: The Night of the Hunt THE.AM.A - Theater for People with Disabilities

The hunt is on! In the absurd maze of society, who is the hunter? The prey cannot run, nor hide, enslaved in the arrogance of a system that devalues human nature and thrives in the deprivation of hope. A fear-producing industry relentlessly divides us into those producing and those consuming fear.

THE A.M.A. – A professional group of disabled actors from Greece touring under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Tourism and the National Tourism Board (EOT) . The battle to conquer all that is "different", and to combat prejudice within ourselves is the ultimate hunt!

Luisa Omielan. The INTERLUDE..Politics for Bitches / What Would Mary Magdalene Do?! Big Love Productions

A work in progress from Luisa Omielan. My third show is gonna be called Famous with a Baby but clearly here I am writing my own website copy, so consider this the interlude, before the finale. This is just a little boring show talking all about Politics as I believe it is my right, to have an opinion on something I know absolutely nothing about! ***** Most of them for my last two.

Three women have been called in for assessment. Sara looks kind of Asian. Scheherazade kind of Middle Eastern. Sarah is kind of white. But how British are they?

Dr. Bramwell’s counterculture night presents two supersized events in the Spiegeltent. Pioneering Women in Music with Viv Albertine and Sarah Angliss (10th) and Ghosts of Watling Street with Alan Moore, Iain Sinclair, John Higgs (24th). Also see The Odditorium:Bosco Theater events.

The caravan doesn't actually go anywhere; the play is about being "socially mobile", and it's based around interviews with a group of men and women who've achieved that much-vaunted goal.

Ghost Walk of the Lanes Ghost Walk of the Lanes

The Fringe programme’s Tours section is always fun to dip into, and this gleefully melodramatic circuit of Brighton’s labyrinthine Lanes is even more entertaining than most. Playing firmly for laughs, not scares, your black-caped guide packs plenty of storytelling into a comparatively short walk, as you wave back and forth through the secret squares and hidden alleyways of the old town. Take note, however, this is no place for cynics: it’s a whole lot more enjoyable if you “ooh” and “aah” along.

A 70 minute tour in the company of either Silas, Jasper or Ebenezer, visiting eight sites, around Brighton's most haunted quarter. All storytellers perform in full Victorian attire.

A look back at the political, topical events of the year all from this young Newcastle Brown’s perspective. While flirting with the offensive, the dark (of course, look at his skin), and turning his back on political correctness, Rahul Kohli is 'A Not So Chubby, Brown'.

Open Sky present Scorched Turtle Key Arts

5 stars A red triangular handle hangs from a red pull-cord, dangling beside a chair. It can mean just one thing: we’re in a care home, and the man we see staring at the TV is nearing the end of his life. But it’s been quite a life. As he shares and acts out his reminiscences, we learn of lovers in Cairo and in Northumbria; of battles at the county fair, and among the desert sand; and of the escaped Luftwaffe pilot he tracked for two sleepless days, amidst the scorching heat of the Sahara. Read the full review.

1941. Egypt. WWII. An escaped German officer. A two day chase across the brutal Sahara. A triumphant capture. A hero’s return.

1991. England. Jack reigns from the armchair of his rest home, a local legend. Decorated veteran of Tobruk. Former river warden, boxer, horse whisperer, boat builder, charmer, prolific father and husband to a very unhappy wife. Memories are, by his own hand, tattooed on his body, but dementia is eroding his mind. As the Gulf War rages, the past drags him back to the scorched sands.

Open Sky uses new writing and visual physical theatre.

Touch tour available before the performance on Thursday 11th May. Please email ali@turtlekeyarts.org.uk to book.

7:40pm to 8:35pm
Wet Bread Sheer Drop Theatre

Adele can’t work out how the Tories are in power – everyone she knows voted Labour, and don’t get her started on Brexit. It would be much better if the rest of the country just agreed with her.

Stick or Wizard? Mouths of Lions

‘Stick or Wizard?’ It’s your choice!

Gaulier-trained clown, Oli Weatherly, invites you to take a trip with him through the wilderness of his imagination and to make a choice. Would you rather meet Mr Stick, a man who dreams of the ultimate freedom – to be a stick; or would you rather meet a wizard? Or how about both? On the surface, ‘Stick or Wizard?’ is a surreal solo comedy, underneath a touching story about a man searching for magic and, perhaps, meaning in life. Part autobiography, part storytelling, part pure idiocy.

“What a hilarious waste of time” (John-Luke Roberts).

“Original, honest (and sometimes he gives out cake)” (Sarah Nade).

Mobile The Paper Birds

5 stars Shows in unorthodox spaces are a staple delight of the Fringe, and this year we have Mobile, performed to a tiny audience in a caravan parked up beside the Warren. The caravan doesn't actually go anywhere; the play is about being "socially mobile", and it's based around interviews with a group of men and women who've achieved that much-vaunted goal. Each is wealthier, better-connected, and better-educated than their parents – and each feels a sense of conflict now, proud of their roots yet sensing that somehow they've moved on. Read the full review.

Co-commissioned by Live Theatre/The Marlowe Theatre. A Paper Birds production.

We are taught from a young age to aim high, to reach for the stars, to want more, more than our parents, more than the generations before us, to climb the social ladder. But as we surge forward, what are we leaving behind? And from our ladder in the stars, if we look back, what do we see?

An intimate 40-minute theatre show set in a caravan, based on interviews conducted in communities across the UK.

“Mobile neatly turns the caravan into a magic box where every cupboard and drawer springs a surprise” (The Guardian).
