Murder and Mayhem at Old Bunbury: A Clive and Esther Tale of Humor and Intrigue

This rollicking, hugely entertaining one-man show has been a sell-out, word-of-mouth hit in Ireland since its premiere at the Galway Fringe in , and now comes to the UK for the first time. An extraordinary true tale of deadly duels, contrary cousins, wayward wives, fiscal fecklessness, the birth of the SPCA and, indeed, a donkey in a courtroom.

With some of your favourites from the last 20 glorious years re-imagined, added to new scenes of spectacular costumes, choreography and of course hilarious comedy! The glamour of Hollywood and the glitz of Las Vegas, with more songs and big-scale musical production numbers than you could point a perfumed glove at. A cabaret like no other cabaret, performed by girls like no other girls! What connects Abba and the Portuguese Revolution?

Mount Everest and a supermarket in Hove? A stained wall and the genesis of a worldwide retail brand? What's the story behind a same-sex wedding in ? Britain's 'most useless' monarch? And why is my charming Regency property damp and crumbling? Discover the real spirit of Brighton in a lively, funny and informative quest to uncover what makes this city unique - and a little bit weird.

Poetry for the drinking classes: Joseph J Clark performs Earnest, endearing, and occasionally exciting poetry from the very bottom of the bottle. This lively, uncomplicated, perfectly delightful show is just the thing to round off a fun day at the Fringe. The venue is a guest house — if I understood it right, some of the performers actually live there — but the action's spread across the globe, from the depths of the sea to the edge of space. In a small group of up to six people, you'll move from room to room to meet a procession of charismatic characters, each of whose lives is intertwined with a figure known only as the Explorer.

Take a journey, following the impossible steps of an eccentric explorer, through improbable terrains to unlikely encounters, in this walk-through immersive theatre experience through a year-old guest house. Groups of six max per adventure, running every 15 mins from the start time. You may be joined by other explorers.

A brand new show from the creator of award-winning wedding comedy 'It's Got to be Perfect'. The critically acclaimed character comic invites you onto Britain's lowest budget cruise ship to meet her new creations. Join your guide Janene as you set sail from Hull to Portsmouth.

Meet the on-board entertainers and bring your own life-jacket Ali McGregor, The Opera Australia soprano who ran away with the circus has gone on to become international cabaret royalty. Fresh from sell-out tours of arts festivals around the world, comes her award-winning solo show. Working alongside the finest jazz musicians, she creates unique hybrids from popular songs, standards and blues. What happens when you take suggestions from your fans to make a new show? The purest of storytelling for adults with a mad-minded inner child. So much history, so little time.

Using martial swordplay, film, narration and live action, their stories will be explored and the inspiration for The Three Musketeers revealed. Ladies Marmalade is a reminder that comedy is more than what you see on TV. Storytelling and stand up with sex, music and loads of jokes. These wonderful women couldn't be any more different, yet both are very funny and empowering! 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: Join Silas, Jasper of Ebenezer, all suitably dressed in full Victorian attire, and hear tales of hideous apparitions, poltergeists, gruesome murders and wandering spirits. Tours also embrace much of the history of The Lanes. Stories are all based on long-established accounts of hauntings but are delivered with a good deal of comic respite.

Tales of a life well-lived with possible nudity, naughty words, and live music. Who could ask for anything more? Well, Steve will ask for a brandy!

Book early to ensure disappointment! Micronian Theatre make their return to the stage with their first original two-act play and debut at Brighton Fringe, fundraising for our charities, The Clock Tower Sanctuary and the Dogs Trust. An ordinary Friday night at the pub turns into anything but ordinary, as the paths of friends and strangers cross.

As drinks are shared secrets are exposed, shattering dreams and destroying lives. Who has blood on their hands? Each performance brings a completely new episode, all inspired by audience suggestions, charting the latest cryptic case of Detective Funishment! Prepare to be amused and awed in equal measure by this spontaneous and unique take on the classic TV 'whodunnit? This campaigning rock opera is a tricky show to review — in fact, it's a tricky show to get your head around.

It's overflowing with big concepts, from the possibility that we're all living inside a computer simulation to a sinister suggestion of deep-state interference in political life. It's built around some fascinating ideas, and features some strident, provocative songs; but it's also a tangle of thoughts and themes, from which it's hard to pull out any specific message.

Upcoming Events

This new show is the sequel to The Reincarnation Of Trim Tab Jim , which earned a four-star review from us back in An unashamedly loud and passionate rock opera, nobody could accuse that last show of ducking big topics: The titular Trim Tab Jim is named after the tiny rudder which can move a mighty boat — and the underlying lesson was that we should all be accountable for making the world a better place. It was agitprop with a strident beat, and hopefully this second incarnation offers more of the same. Trim Tab is on a mission to fulfil a promise he made to the Angel of Death.

If only he could remember what it was A psychiatrist takes a keen interest in him and goes out of her way to help him fulfil his potential. But all is not as it seems — indeed, reality itself may not be as it seems The group will also play some of their own arrangements. Established in , Sussex Flutes include the whole flute family from piccolo to bass flute, which gives their recitals great variety May The intense sonatas in E and B minors contrast with the innocent radiance of the sonatas in C and A majors.

Sonatas in Eb and E majors May International cabaret sex god Tomas Ford Crap Music Rave Party reaches for international stardom with his biggest, dumbest pop extravaganza yet.

Poetic, heartfelt and honest, 'Cry, Blueberry' is a new magical-realist solo play praised with four stars at the Camden Fringe as one "to revere and respect" and "a strong and bold piece of theatre. It's one of the stranger stories from Brighton's chequered past: And this gothic comedy of a puppet show is fittingly dainty and sweet; performed with miniature glove puppets on an adorable fold-out set, it's full of knowing humour, yet still does justice to the grotesque historical tale.

A grotesque, darkly comic Victorian story of obsessive love, murder, and confectionery. Seven lavish glove-puppets and one narrator-puppeteer bring you this tale inspired by the real Brighton Chocolate Cream Poisoner of The central question for protagonist Winston Smith and his sweetheart Julia is — whom should they trust?

Patrick Hamilton's Rope may be a classic script, but it's also a rather bizarre one. Two upper-class students commit a brutal murder: They've hidden the body in a packing chest, and invited some friends round for tea. They're using the chest to lay out the buffet. Is this really a good idea? Two students murder a fellow student as an expression of their intellectual superiority.

They hide the body in a chest and proceed to host a party for his friends and family, at which the chest containing his corpse is used to serve a buffet. The play, later adapted by Alfred Hitchcock, is loosely based on a true murder case. Will this be peacefully resolved?

He has so many lines that make me think 'I wish I'd thought of that'" Romesh Ranganathan. See for yourself what got the nation so hot under the collar. Find out about her life behind the scenes and what really happens! You know Kafka's Metamorphosis , of course; the tale of a man called Gregor, who wakes up one morning to find he's become an insect. But do you really know the story? What about the other characters — do you know anything of their lives? This clever, free-handed, but ultimately faithful adaptation is narrated by Gregor's sister Grete… drawing parallels with her own metamorphosis from girl into woman, and offering an interesting interpretation of Gregor's transformation as well.

Kafka's Metamorphosis is a Fringe favourite, and with its tale of a man becoming an insect, it's particularly suited to physical interpretation. But this version is different, because the focus is on Grete — sister to Gregor Samsa, the man who famously undergoes the transformation. Reviews of an earlier performance in Brighton are encouraging, suggesting that the script draws parallels between Gregor's metamorphosis and the changes experienced by the adolescent Grete… and all the while, the outside world is transforming, too.

One morning as Greta Samsa was waking from anxious dreams she discovered that in bed she had changed. Dear friend, You are cordially invited to your good friend Shelley's Birthday!

Despite accidentally catching cancer, lunch poet Daniel Searle was one of the few people to not die in Through a series of spoken word pieces he looks back at the year in which a series of icons passed away, people voted for chaos in various forms, and he massively crapped himself after realising for the first time that he wasn't actually immortal, despite being as ginger as Highlander.

A comic reflection on death and the destruction of unity, art, and society, with occasional bouts of maudlin introspection and self-pity, this is one for all the family. This year it's Hamlet getting the treatment, and it's safe to assume Denmark is in for a few creative surprises. What could possibly go right? The best concepts in science fiction aren't the showy ones, but the ones which serve as jumping-off points for a believable human story.

So it is with The Erebus Project — which ostensibly is about a near-future technology for reading dying people's minds. But in reality, this quiet yet powerful four-hander is about the value of companionship; about how some losses needn't be forever, and how important it is to talk things through before it's time to say goodbye. Sam wants to know if there is an afterlife and thinks he can prove it. Can he convince Aurora, a terminal patient, to take part in his science experiment?
