I’ve joined Brighton’s Broadway Baby review team, which means we’re only four days into Brighton Fringe and I already have a favourite venue & place to stand at the bar.
Brighton Fringe is:
Brighton Fringe is the largest open-access arts festival in England. It is an international festival that is at the same time rooted in the community. It embraces every art form and every form of artistic expression, and supports both new and established performers in trying out new work and taking risks.
and Broadway Baby is a:
performing arts hub containing thousands of listings, reviews and articles about everything on stage in the UK.
So far I’ve reviewed Poets v Mcs (Brighton v Sheffield) and the History of Ireland–and both were a delight. They made me laugh at things I didn’t expect, they inspired me about what writing (in all formats) can do, and they both made me dance.
I’ve got at least six more shows to see, including Shakespeare, sci-fi and more spoken word shows. If you’re in town I’d recommend Dead Happy, You’re In A Bad Way and Witch-Hunt as the three shows to check out. Happy fringing!
