Life Without Dog Found in the Forest Theatre Company

3 stars As the lights come up on this original piece of youth theatre, we find three young people – two brothers and a sister – gathered at an open grave. Their parents, we learn, are missing; the older brother, just 18, is bringing up the family alone. But it's not mum or dad in the coffin. So just who – or what – are they burying? Read the full review.

Following a sell-out performance of Katherine Chandler's 'Hood' at the National's Dorfman Theatre, Found in the Forest return with a new world premiere.

Using puppetry and live music, 'Life Without Dog' shares the story of three siblings living without their parents and occasionally with Dog.

How does a family who are already falling apart keep it together when it’s revealed that someone else has just left them?

"Their work is visionary, fun, deep" (Adele Thomas, National Theatre Associate Director).

"Wonderfully anarchic" (Adam Penford, Artistic Director, Nottingham Playhouse).

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.

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.

If you want to participate in a show that will not only entertain you, but leave a lasting impression, one that will help you overcome sticking-points and blocks in your life, then the only question you should ask yourself is: "what’s stopping me?"

Be amazed and motivated: This is your MoMent!

Winner of the WMA Stage Magician of the Year Award 2014.

Network Diagnostics Octopus Soup Theatre

New work from an exciting Irish theatre company.

Kate and Tadgh have not left their rooms for a very long time. To make a living, they look for work on a dubious website called “Hablo Hot and Heavy.”

An uplifting and hilarious comedy about love, loss, and... can we call it porn?

McCarthy’s work has been supported by the internationally renowned Druid Theatre Company and has produced across the UK and Ireland, most recently in a reading at Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre.

“Octopus Soup Theatre is a class piece of work” (London Theatre Review).

The Ruffian on the Stair Blue Devil Theatre

4 stars If you hadn't picked it up from the 1960's music, a glimpse at the impressive period set would instantly anchor this play in time. A lesser-known script by Joe Orton, The Ruffian On The Stair belongs to an age when a man was the king of his castle – even if the castle's a bedsit, and the king is barely scraping through. The ruffian of the title comes later; we first meet the bristle-moustached, square-shouldered Mike, a middle-aged ex-boxer who's kept tolerably in shape, the very image of self-conscious masculinity. Read the full review.

A young man says he's just looking for a place to stay, but he's got sex, violence and revenge on his mind. When Mike and Joyce open their door to Wilson, they're letting in so much more than a handsome stranger. This new production of Joe Orton's deliciously dark comedy marks not only the 50th anniversary of his untimely death, but also the 50th anniversary of the play's first staging at the Royal Court Theatre and the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Great Britain. Directed by Ross Dinwiddy and produced by Ian Howarth.

PASSPAWT Actors Workshop & HeavenLee Theatre

5 stars I'm not a cat person. I've never been a cat person. I can feel no affection for a haughty prima donna equipped with claws and fangs. So I sympathise with Helena, the protagonist of this hilarious one-woman show – whose life is invaded by a hellish creature determined to shred her carpets and drive away her friends. Yet that's just the starting-point for an unexpectedly touching story, which explores big questions of connectivity and identity under the cover of a lightweight comic tale. Read the full review.

Out of the 29 years the amiable-natured Helena has been alive, 5 were spent in her birth country Slovakia and 24 in England.

Linda was the result of what Helena considers to be the greatest advertising scam of all time. What was described as a cute, loving, friendly cat turned out to be the devil in disguise. Years of rejected affections, scarred arms and police warnings later, personal and political circumstances change, but will the pair reconcile or will Helena board the flight home alone?

4:00pm to 5:00pm
In Conversation with an Acid Bath Murderer 368 Theatre Company

5 stars (previous review) Reviewed in 2016 Before I saw this mesmerising play, I’d only vaguely heard of John George Haigh – the 1940’s serial killer who dissolved his victims’ bodies in acid, in the mistaken belief that destroying the corpse would preclude a charge of murder.  This well-travelled production, which returns to Brighton Fringe after an absence of five years, certainly fills in the details of the notorious real-life tale.  But it’s more than a documentary: it’s an engaging character study, and despite its hideous subject matter it proves deceptively watchable, too. Read the full review.

This mesmerising, unsettling two-hander scored 5* from us last year, thanks to its masterful characterisation and clever lightness of touch. The story it tells feels implausibly gothic, yet it's absolutely true – the tale of John George Haigh, the 1940's serial killer who notoriously destroyed his victims' bodies in acid. With plenty of Sussex local colour and a few moments of genuine suspense, it's dark, visceral, yet bleakly humorous. It's a small venue, so be sure to book ahead.

Join John George Haigh in his cell, the night before he is hanged in 1949. Written by Nigel Fairs and directed by Louise Jameson, this terrifying true story won an Argus Angel Award in 2011.
"A fascinating journey through the killer's mind." (Eastern Daily Press).
"A beautifully written script and central performance." (The Argus).
"There can’t be a more perfect setting... a riveting production." (Broadway Baby).
"A masterclass in characterisation - and an exemplar of factual drama done well." (Fringe Guru).

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.

An amazing 5 hour piano marathon Sorbaji's Opus Clavicembalisticum Music at Saint Michael's

Opus Clavicembalisticum is perhaps Sorabji’s best known work, even if more talked about than played until the 1980s. Its twelve movements in three parts occupy at least 4¼ hours in performance. Replete with coruscating counterpoint, vehement virtuosity and irrepressible invention, “OC” throws down some of the most hair-raising challenges in the entire piano repertoire. It is, without question, a milestone in the history of the piano. The concert's duration will be approximately 5 and a half hours, to include 4 intervals. Free local parking available on request. Please contact the church.

One soldier's story of coping with PTSD.

After serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Tommy's observations on civvy life are comic and moving. His emotional responses to Post Office queues, a trip to Ikea and his relationships and family lead to alienation and anger.

London Road is an area rapidly regenerating after years of inner city decline. New businesses have moved in, with improvements to the Open Market and The Level, new housing at the Co-op, New England and on Ditchling Road and a general feeling of urban regrowth.

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.

Mike Mckeon: Irish Jimmy Mike Mckeon

"Jimmy was my grandfather. He was an old rogue. A warning rather than an example. He lived in interesting times."

‘Irish Jimmy’ is an hour of storytelling, interspersed with original songs, that are poignant, dark, humorous and life-affirming. An exploration of identity, family and how we journey to who we become. This beautifully crafted show entertains and mesmerises as you travel through three generations of soldiers and suffragettes, rogues and rebels, songs and stories.

HIP Trip of Brighton: A Psychedelic Wander Kriya Arts

Hip was one of the most talked-about shows at last year's Fringe, thanks to its unusual mix of licensed voyeurism and collective discovery. It told the story of a squat, the diaries its former owner left behind, and the tale of a much-loved woman's life. Last year's show was confined to a theatre, but this time it's a walking tour – visiting places mentioned in the diaries and recalling the Brighton of the Seventies. The original earned 4* from us, so here's hoping the new version is an equal success.

Award-nominated sell-out hit HIP returns as an immersive journey through the streets of 1970s Brighton. HIP explores the true story of Brightonian Anne Clarke. The discovery of Anne's diaries and letters by squatter Jolie Booth, unearthed a huge archive about the city they've lived in and experiences they've shared. Visit places Anne wrote about and learn how her life left an imprint on the city. "A hugely enjoyable, engaging and at times profound reflection on what we create and what we leave behind" (Total Theatre). "Hip is a must see show. Highly recommended" (Fringe Review). ***** (Broadway Baby).

Touch tours and audio description available as needed. Please enquire upon arrival.

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!

Everyone has a crazy family. Most have bad relationships. Few justify all passion-driven life decisions with high level scientific research.

In Conversation with an Acid Bath Murderer 368 Theatre Company

5 stars (previous review) Reviewed in 2016 Before I saw this mesmerising play, I’d only vaguely heard of John George Haigh – the 1940’s serial killer who dissolved his victims’ bodies in acid, in the mistaken belief that destroying the corpse would preclude a charge of murder.  This well-travelled production, which returns to Brighton Fringe after an absence of five years, certainly fills in the details of the notorious real-life tale.  But it’s more than a documentary: it’s an engaging character study, and despite its hideous subject matter it proves deceptively watchable, too. Read the full review.

This mesmerising, unsettling two-hander scored 5* from us last year, thanks to its masterful characterisation and clever lightness of touch. The story it tells feels implausibly gothic, yet it's absolutely true – the tale of John George Haigh, the 1940's serial killer who notoriously destroyed his victims' bodies in acid. With plenty of Sussex local colour and a few moments of genuine suspense, it's dark, visceral, yet bleakly humorous. It's a small venue, so be sure to book ahead.

Join John George Haigh in his cell, the night before he is hanged in 1949. Written by Nigel Fairs and directed by Louise Jameson, this terrifying true story won an Argus Angel Award in 2011.
"A fascinating journey through the killer's mind." (Eastern Daily Press).
"A beautifully written script and central performance." (The Argus).
"There can’t be a more perfect setting... a riveting production." (Broadway Baby).
"A masterclass in characterisation - and an exemplar of factual drama done well." (Fringe Guru).

The Unknown Soldier Grist To The Mill Productions Ltd

5 stars (previous review) Reviewed in 2015 If there was one thing I was certain we didn't need this Fringe, it was yet another play about World War One.  But this play is different: partly because actor-playwright Ross Ericson was once a serving soldier, and partly because it picks up the story where other scripts leave off.  The imagery you expect is all there – the claustrophobic billet, the hammering rain, the tales of chest-deep mud – but there's something unfamiliar too, something that doesn't quite add up.  So when it finally dawned on me just what this particular soldier was doing in the Somme, the desensiti Read the full review.

If you think you never want to see another play about World War One, then you want to see this play about World War One.  A powerful one-man performance set in the aftermath of the conflict, it's earned universal acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe, including a five-star review from Fringe Guru.  While there are moments of humour, it’s most notable for capturing the visceral reality of close-quarter combat – and for conveying the true horror of life in the trenches on a comprehensible, individual scale.

Jack stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs for those that could never go home. For Jack has a promise to keep and a debt to repay, and as they gather the fallen together in the ever-growing cemeteries, Jack is looking for someone - someone in particular. A story of comradeship, betrayal and loss in a world for ever changed by the carnage of the First World War.

Grist To The Mill brings its Edinburgh Fringe sell-out 5-star show to Brighton Fringe for one last time.

"Strong writing, an original approach and a sensitive performance" (The Stage).

Macblair Falling Sparrow Productions

4 stars Do you like politics? Do you know your Shakespeare? Then you're going to love MacBlair. The concept sounds gimmicky – Macbeth re-mastered, with Tony Blair in the title role and Gordon Brown as Banquo – but there's real depth and weight to writer Charlie Dupre's audacious tragi-comic adaptation. Employing a mix of Shakespearean text and newly-penned pentameters, Dupre delivers both humour and provocation, revealing in the process not just an appreciation of modern political history but a deep understanding of the Bard's original themes. Read the full review.

The story of New Labour, with Blair as Macbeth and Brown as Banquo? It feels like it must have been done before… and somewhere, perhaps, it has. But this "Shakespearean tragicomedy" sounds fresh enough to me; the press release promises an intriguing mix of comedy, physical theatre and rap. It has a full cast but it's the brainchild of oftentime solo performer Charlie Dupré, whose previous Bardic mash-up earned 4* from us for its witty rhymes and intelligent, knowing irreverence.

It is 1994. Returning from a successful parliamentary meeting, Macblair and Macbrown meet three weird hacks on a stairwell in the House of Commons. They prophesy that Macblair will become leader of the Labour party, then Prime Minister, and eventually... King of the World.

This is the story of Tony Blair as a Shakespearean tragicomedy. Performed by 3 actors, it uses verse, rap, comedy and physical theatre to examine the inner workings of one of the most detested men in modern political discourse.

They Built It. No One Came. Fledgling Theatre Company

Twelve years ago, Tobias and Alexander came together to form a spiritualist commune based on their shared visions of a peaceful and harmonious community... they are still awaiting their first member. 'They Built It. No One Came.' was inspired by an article published in the NYT in 2015. It previewed at the New Diorama Theatre and had a successful run at the Pleasance Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2016.

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.

4 stars A woman stands alone on the stage, under a stuttering light. She's dressed in a jumpsuit, labelled with a number; she's escaped from somewhere – a prison, or something else? She's a bereaved mother, a victim of abuse, the owner of an unbroken spirit. She's also, in a sense, a weapon. Model Organism is the story of how she got there. Read the full review.

King Richard faces a big reckoning in a little cell. The golden boy is tarnished now, friendless and alone. He can’t stop crying or talking, in his ragged prison walls. Did he go, or was he pushed? Is he just a puppet? Voices, choices, gilded loam or painted clay - who was pulling his strings? And if the King isn’t in command then who is?! Gregory Gudgeon (The Lion King, Shakespeare's Globe, Complicité & RSC) is the King who can't stop playing. Also featuring Lucas Augustine. Puppets by Jitka Davídková and Brigitte Dörner.

Stones Artlandish Productions

4 stars Stones is a finely-balanced, even contradictory play, whose elegant visuals and cultivated language disguise a brutal and dehumanising world. A man and a woman share a prison cell; she at least is free to move, while he stands chained to a pillar. She's a newcomer, we quickly learn, but he's stood like this for years. He's the only survivor of three brothers who one were chained here – able to speak but never to touch, powerless to reach out and offer comfort as, one by one, they died. Read the full review.

Jasper has spent months alone in his cell since his brothers passed. Now a light shines through in the form of a Rose. But is his new companion all she appears to be? Locked in a prison away from anything, who is to say what is a mere story and what is a memory of a very real past? After the critical acclaim of their production 'Un-titled', Artlandish Productions presents their brand new play. Combining the company's usual style of pathos and pithiness, 'Stones' looks at the mind's ability to make a heaven of a hell. And vice versa.

7:30pm to 8:25pm
Flowerpot Women Izzie and Dora

In a garden far away, in a world a lot like this one, in a conversation that has already happened, Eddie asks Garland: "What's it all about?" And Garland answers, "I don't know." Described by audiences as "Beckett in the Suburbs" and "French and Saunders on acid", 'Flowerpot Women' is a darkly comedic theatre piece performed outdoors in an intimate garden setting. With guest appearances from Willy the scarecrow (praised for his strong and stoic performance), this extraordinary happening sees Eddie and Garland invite members of The Outside into their world for a first and final time.

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.

The Brighton Killers 368 Theatre Company

Hot on the heels of yesterday's Sure Choice, this is another tale of real-life crime in the atmospheric, claustrophobic surrounds of the town hall's Old Police Cells. The cleverly-planned performance sees the audience split into groups to hear the tales of three murders, told by the murderers themselves. Though they lived in different eras and killed for different reasons, perhaps there's more to link them than meets the eye. I bagged the last ticket of a sell-out run last year, so book early this time.

Last year's sell-out success returns to the Old Police Cells as Brighton murderers tell their true stories in the building where one of them tried to flush away the evidence that would condemn him, and another's body was put on display for the morbid delectation of 23,000 members of the public.

"This is a darkly enthralling immersive, immensely enjoyable theatre event." (Broadway Baby).

"What makes this succeed on all levels is the in-depth character studies that bring the Brighton Killers to life." (remotegoat).

"Well-written, atmospheric and blackly comic" (Reviews Hub).

Jam Tarts has enjoyed a string of successful shows in 2015 and 2016, including festival appearances and a critically-acclaimed collaboration with Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta.
The choral collective is now pleased to confirm a return to Brighton Fringe for a third time in 2017.
The 60 Tarts pack out venues whenever they appear. Their musically tight and emotionally powerful sound showcases director Li Mills’s unique, shimmering arrangements of songs by Indie and alternative artists including The Smiths, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Bat for Lashes, Tom Waits, Prince, Nirvana and Joy Division.

Werewolf: Live Moonshot Games

If you've ever played the parlour game Werewolf, then you'll know what to expect from this panel show. If you haven't, think murder-mystery crossed with Big Brother: contestants drawn from the audience trade accusations and vie for loyalty, while an unseen assassin bumps them off, one by one, during the night. I saw an early version of this show at the Vault Festival in London, and it was a lot of fun watching the secret machinations unfold. Jon Gracey, formerly of the Beta Males, hosts.

A hidden role game a la Secret Hitler or The Resistance, Werewolf is a classic of deduction and bluffing. Players are either werewolves or villagers. Your goal? Wolves must kill villagers; villagers must kill wolves.

Werewolf is traditionally played with mates in a living room, but Jon Gracey off of sketch tits The Beta Males (***** Three Weeks/Broadway Baby/Spoonfed/Fringe Guru/Skinny/Time Out) has created a theatrical gaming experience like no other.

Come and participate in a huge, live extravaganza as player or spectator – some of YOU will be playing on stage, fighting for your lives!

Richard Carpenter's Close to You A Carpenter

Remember this guy? He used to be on top of the world, to the left of (and slightly behind) superstar Karen. Nowadays, Richard Carpenter is finally a solo act, still looking down on creation from behind his piano. So... Where do we go from here? Well, get yourself a ticket to ride, and buckle up. A colourful hybrid of character comedy, dramatic monologue and live music gig, Richard Carpenter's 'Close to You' is an epic account of the ultimate control freak, performed by Matthew Floyd Jones, the guy to the left behind the piano from that other celebrated musical double act 'Frisky & Mannish'. Come for the virtuosic renditions of the Carpenters' catchiest tunes, stay for the harrowing scenes of psychological torment. Cos Solitaire's the only game in town! Praise for Jones: "Wildly talented" (Independent). "A terrific lead" (Time Out). "Such a compelling performer" (Exeunt). "Hugely entertaining" (The Guardian). THIS PARODY SHOW IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH RICHARD CARPENTER IN ANY WAY. IT IS A WORK OF FICTION INSPIRED BY HIS LEGACY AND INTENDED WITH LOVE. AND IF BIRDS SUDDENLY APPEAR, WELL, THAT'S JUST A COINCIDENCE.

8:30pm to 10:00pm

So You Say Different Productions

When ex-lovers meet after a gap of many years, what can we believe about the stories they tell?

A fast-paced journey through the past and the present. Funny, shocking, and bittersweet.

With Charly Sommers and Russell Shaw
Directed by Sam Chittenden.

According to Angelica Wanton Minds Prods/Primpinella Prods

The Writers' Bloc Unmasked Theatre

Soviet Russia, 1937. Deflecting public attention away from his deadly purges, Joseph Stalin commissions a great book to be written. Five great writers are placed in a room with an infinite supply of vodka, cigarettes and fear. For each writer it is their last chance, and every word is loaded.

A fictional thriller based on the works of Yevgeny Zamyatin ('We'), Mikhail Bulgakov ('The Master and Magherita'), and Boris Pasternak ('Dr Zhivago'), The Writers’ Bloc mixes a tense blend of violence, comedy and physical theatre.

Written by Luke Ofield, produced by Unmasked Theatre (Trojan Women).

9:15pm to 10:00pm
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).

9:30pm to 10:20pm
The Ruffian on the Stair Blue Devil Theatre

4 stars If you hadn't picked it up from the 1960's music, a glimpse at the impressive period set would instantly anchor this play in time. A lesser-known script by Joe Orton, The Ruffian On The Stair belongs to an age when a man was the king of his castle – even if the castle's a bedsit, and the king is barely scraping through. The ruffian of the title comes later; we first meet the bristle-moustached, square-shouldered Mike, a middle-aged ex-boxer who's kept tolerably in shape, the very image of self-conscious masculinity. Read the full review.

A young man says he's just looking for a place to stay, but he's got sex, violence and revenge on his mind. When Mike and Joyce open their door to Wilson, they're letting in so much more than a handsome stranger. This new production of Joe Orton's deliciously dark comedy marks not only the 50th anniversary of his untimely death, but also the 50th anniversary of the play's first staging at the Royal Court Theatre and the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Great Britain. Directed by Ross Dinwiddy and produced by Ian Howarth.

9:30pm to 10:30pm
Even God Knew I Was GAY Jilberto Soto

In case you were wondering...

Jilberto is a Seattle-based comic who has brought his talents to London. He is a corporate professional snob during the day and just a snob at night. His sexual and racial (Mexican) comedic style have often been referred to as personal yet embarrassing by his older brother.

What about the show...

This show will immerse the audience explaining my move from Seattle to London, with the exploration of a gay dating struggle for a Catholic Mexican. Overall, it’s the journey to find what acceptance means within one self.
