Brighton Fringe has for many years been the place to see the work of up and coming writers and performers – as well as some of the more established artists on the scene, not just local but national and even international, and this year’s programme looks equally packed with opportunities to catch a glimpse of that new talent. But it is always an opportunity to catch the work of some of the city’s better known creators of modern theatre and this year is no exception.
Brighton Theatre is a non-building-based company dedicated to producing innovative new work in new spaces, originating in Brighton and touring globally. Winners of a record 9 Fringe First Awards, and a commission to become the first Fringe company to play the main Edinburgh International Festival, their notable productions include: Brothers Karamazov, Edinburgh International Festival, Russia, Romania, Hungary & Fortune Theatre, London; The First Domino by Jonathan Cash, winner Best New Play, Brighton Festival, BBC Radio 3; Gaza play, I am a Warehouse, site-specific with installation & film, Newhaven Fort, Brighton Festival, restaged for Children of Gaza Charity, transmitted live to Jerusalem; Dancing With Demons, V & A Diaghilev Exhibition, Brighton Festival & British Council tour of South America.
A one-day-old male mosquito looks forward to joining the mile-high club and mating in the air
The First Domino was an extraordinarily moving and at times very scary two man piece of theatre about the man behind the Soho bombing of the Admiral Duncan pub by right wing extremist David Copeland, that shocked and in part devastated London’s gay community, and it was performed at Latest Musicbar to rave reviews.
This year Brighton Theatre are back at the bar with a new work Mozzz! A topical, witty, and sexy monodrama from multi-award winners, director Faynia Williams and playwright Richard Crane
A one-day-old male mosquito looks forward to joining the mile-high club and mating in the air. He invites you to donate just a sip of your blood to nurture his children. But there’s a war on and the most dangerous species on earth is dying by the million. Can science stop the carnage? Whose side is our Mozzz on?
This world premiere from one of Brighton’s most exciting theatre companies, marks their return to their home town, after international work across the science/art divide.
