We also have performances from further afield including winner of the Sydney Fringe Touring Award in association with Brighton Fringe, ‘My Greatest Period Ever’, by Lucy Peach, who comes all the way from Perth, Australia. Challenging stigma and celebrating what it is to be a menstruating woman, Peach is the epitome of edutainment. This year’s programme truly pushes the boundaries of creativity and entertainment.

SONS EA

“The support we’ve received with this award from Junkyard Dogs and Brighton Fringe is really fantastic. We held our first ever rehearsal of our first ever play at the Brighthelm Centre so performing Thrown in the exact same building nine years later, with this amount of support and artistic backing, feels like we’re completing something and coming full circle. Come for the binaural sound experience, but stay for the cinematic and sensory storytelling of one woman attempting to record what she’s spent her whole life trying to forget.”

As well as welcoming back a wonderful assortment of local talent, we are excited to be bringing you a diverse selection of events from our Dutch and Nordic Seasons including stand-up from queer, feminist comedians, interactive events such as artist speed dating and even Flamenco mixed with Finnish folk songs.

INTERN

Each year, Brighton Fringe presents an ‘Award for Excellence’ at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The 2019 winner was selected in association with Junkyard Dogs. “Thrown is a multi-layered and completely absorbing piece. Through binaural sound and a wonderful visual performance, we are taken on a journey that makes us reflect on our childhood, as well as considering our future. Totally unique and captivating.” Laura Chatburn, Junkyard Dogs.

There’s a spectacular number of performances and events on offer at Brighton Fringe 2019, over 4,000 in fact! So, if you’re stuck for where to begin, start your Fringe adventure with an award-winning event, bursary winner or specialist season show.

As a songwriting wife with a parallel career in sexual health and a live illustrating and creative director husband, we fell into theatre together by accident two years ago. We’ve been touring Australia ever since, on a wave of menstrual empowerment, leaving a trail of fist pumping emboldened bleeders and enlightened blokes in our wake!

“Winning the coveted Best Children’s Presentation Award at the Adelaide Fringe was so great. It gave validation to our work and encouraged us to continue to make the type of shows that we love to perform. Trash Test Dummies is mostly about play, creativity and joy where we explore everyday objects in profound and hilarious ways. When making the show it was most important to us that we had lots of fun performing it as well as entertaining the audiences… of all ages. Like a Pixar film we perform things for the parents that the kids don’t understand. With slapstick comedy and world-class circus stunts there is something for everyone.” Jamie Bretman, Trash Test Dummies

Caspar Thomas [GB]

LIVE MUSIC

The spirit of French sculptress Camille Claudel has been awakened by an influx of interest in her work. A lot has been written about her - she even has her own museum. Now, she feels, is the time to tell her story from her own point of view, from the purely human perspective.

Magic as stunning as the skill is hidden. "You won't see other magicians do this stuff... because they can't! Caspar's skill is of a standard rarely seen anywhere" (Jerry Sadowitz), "Stunning sleight of hand from a master of magic" (Fringe Review), "Fantastic!" (Hollywood Fringe).

Confessions of a Drag King

A pole-esque tale, telling the story of one woman's journey through pole, from the seedy underworld of Brighton, to her respectable reinvention as a drag king. A feelgood play exploring themes of feminism and gender identity. A 'must' for all Freddie Mercury fans!

LGBTQ+

There's a proverbial sh*t-storm raging out here, but inside Crystalz Tavern exists a secret cabaret party that stops for nothing. Resist man-made monsters like broflakes and binaries at our cabaret of camaraderie, with artist rebels and allies that refuse to go down quietly; in heels, in binders and in solidarity!

One rifle says to the other rifle; "I really wish they didn't make me shoot her." This show is brutal and tender, humorous and melancholic. It's a drag performance about Israeli soldiers, Palestinian police and European weapons designers and is about the modern obsession with violence.

For an hour, they will stop time and share with you some incredible characters lost in history. We can't promise facts. We can't even promise to make it to the end of the show. But we can promise an anarchic, comedic kaleidoscope of songs, sketches and silliness to put a smile on everyone's face.

Back by popular demand for the second year running! TotRockinBeats throw down an amazingly funky, three hour, outdoor, family-friendly, hip-hop, funk and soul block party. Featuring: top DJs, MCs, live graffiti, B-Boys and Girls, outdoor crafts, kids entertainment, a licensed bar and more.

Fancy an alternative variety show? Then they don't get much better than this! Four award-winning break through acts playing in an intimate venue and all for free!

Amadeus Martin has arrived home to find his dog, Pluto, on the table with the memory stick containing the material for his new show in its mouth, chewed up. Pluto is staring at Amadeus. Amadeus has two choices; get the dog or write another show. Amadeus could not reach Pluto, now under the sofa, so had to write this show, a list of his 'pet hates'.

Have you ever witnessed a couple's divorce? When these people are your parents, your life turns upside down, especially if you're 8-years-old. Trev takes you through his adolescence in an army boarding school, whilst coming to terms with his dual identity. This show will resonate with you even if your 'rents are still happily married.

J has crabs... Well, just one crab actually... He's hiding in the toilet at a gay club. Maybe because of what he just saw on the dance floor. Or maybe because he's being chased by a crab... And this is one cranky crustacean.

SOLO SHOW

Politics, celebrity, the media, technology, our 24-hour reality television cartoon dystopia. More hilarious rants and raves from the funniest comic you've never heard of. David Mills returns with another full-frontal comedy tirade taking on the 'moment'. "Darkly funny, bristling with sharp-tongued satire and incisive wit." (Fest Mag), "David Mills is heading for the big time. Most definitely one to watch." (Time Out)

David Tsonos has been auditioning for 20 years. He has now put all the funny stories together. He shows you just what it takes to 'not' make it in the acting business, to some this will be educational, to others shocking, but to all a good laugh.

Following a sell-out run in Oxford, 'Family Secrets' is a night of comedy and chaos as a family inspired by your suggestions has an entirely improvised reunion. One thing is for sure: nothing is quite as funny as family. "Terrific, sharp wit" (Daily Info).

Brighton's rude and raucous female comedy troupe returns to Brighton Fringe! With songs, sketches and wry musings on the female experience, their original and bold material takes you into the wilderness of the female psyche, leaving you gasping for breath. An evening without inhibition.

The Maydays will take any offer from the hat and give it their own special twist. Wonder what this year's Chekhovian Mime Act or Bavarian Heavy Metal Band will look like?

STAND-UP

Why have a single entendre when you can go for the double?! Ninety minutes of unstoppable panel show mayhem, featuring teams of performers from across Brighton Fringe, all of them ready to charade their audiences good and hard. It's a game show that's strictly adult, and if we find any prizes, we'll give you one... wwwww (The Wee Review). www.imaginarypornocharades.com

A stand-up comedy show about the joys and horrors of having an overactive imagination. Emily McQuade is wondering whether she has to stop daydreaming now that she's an adult lady. Are the scariest monsters really the ones on the inside? (Or is it the ones inside them?) What is the best shape for a mouse? These questions and more will be answered. Possibly.

TV comedy producer Izzy (The Windsors, Peep Show, Harry & Paul) has been pathologically tactful all her life. But tonight, that changes... Come help Izzy conquer her politeness addiction, and reclaim RUDE... The first rule of Polite Club is: You do not talk about Polite Club. Unless someone asks you nicely.

'Jack Cherry and Friends from the Fruit Bowl' is a romp of bizarre happenings that explore the completely fabricated lives of the colourful and controversial. In a series of absurdist and satirical monologues tied together with music and 'interpretative dance' this show takes you on a journey from talking pineapples to the biblical and back.

Award-nominated stand-up Jim Campbell descends from a murderous Scottish clan and has inherited their rage. He wanted to address this and learn to be more Zen. Then his bathroom exploded.

Lisa is very boring. This is unfortunate, as she is a comedian. Instead of fireworks, expect hi-vis jackets. Instead of innuendos, expect unbiased information about state-funded porn. Instead of clever gags about dating apps, expect to learn about Martin Luther. And expect to ask yourself; "why did I laugh at that?"

STAND-UP

STAND-UP

Cluster-bombed with yoghurt on 'Taskmaster', half-killed on 'Bear Grylls' Celebrity Island', Watson returns to what he's best at: being indoors. Inspired by the mostly alarming state of the world his children are growing up in, and a genuine, urgent desire to do something about it, this show is about empathy. "Hugely entertaining, craftsmanlike, remarkable" (The Telegraph).

It's Mary Flanigan and Robbie McShane! One's a comedian, one's a robot pretending to be a comedian. After an hour of our most relatable material, can you spot the robot and save mankind? You could stop, or start, the robot apocalypse. It's in your hands, all of humanity, so come on down!

POETRY

Five years ago, Pete Nash was about to board a plane to Silicon Valley to sell his business for seven figures. Today, he's performing a Fringe show about it called 'Where's My Money?' Find out what happened with this hour of feelgood, cathartic stand-up. "Watch this space, he's something else" (Tom Parry, Pappy's), "Totally barmy... infectious joy on stage... it's compelling" (The Stand, Newcastle)

Pete Strong just wants to be happy. But can he be happy? Join him in his new work in progress show as he tries to find joy in the little things, with poems about love, drinking, working, bits of furniture and the aching feeling that maybe nothing really matters too much except living in the moment. "His laconic and often surreal poetry was a treat" (Broadway Baby), "Cathartically funny" (Chortle).

STAND-UP

Sam Went got dumped and did the super normal thing of transferring his feelings onto the 17th worst movie ever 'Bicentennial Man'. Now he's going to convince you to love this romantic odyssey of a robot butler as much as he does.

The "reigning queen of New York's live storytelling scene" (Jon Ronson). Sara's debut stand-up hour is outstanding, it garnered five-star reviews and was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards. Hilarious and incisive, Sara skewers her husband, her child, WhatsApp, herself and, notably, a tweenage sex script she wrote way back in 1992.

STAND-UP

2018 Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer nominee aims to dissect the fundamental decency - or lack thereof inherent to of all us. Are we actually good, or do we rather perform goodness, only to crack under the pressure when it comes to all manner of genuine sacrifice? And who can know? In this, her sophomore effort, Sara Barron tries to. She wants to be the one who knows.

The award-winning Sarah Keyworth talks about life with an important little girl. 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' but British, deadpan and in no way similar. "Charming, independent, excellently deadpan" (Huffington Post) "I liked that joke about her fanny" (Sarah Millican) "A complete breath of fresh air" (EdFest).

As heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra, Scottish stand-up comedian Sezar Alkassab brings his new work in progress show to Brighton Fringe. "He is a talented and exciting artist." (Festival Angaelica, USA).

'Bad Manors' is a script written by Annie's ex-boyfriend when he was 15. Now he's 30 and has given up on writing. To celebrate forgotten creativity and committing to the impossible, she presents a full production of 'Bad Manors'. If you've ever created anything (or not), this show is for you.

'Goblin and Fiends' is a work in progress from South Coast New Comedian Finalist, Simone Belshaw. Simone brings her unique brand of silly surreal comedy to explore themes of idiocy, failure and woodland creatures. Each show will also feature a special guest comic, local to Brighton. "Hugely watchable" (Voice).

Sleeping Trees have been travelling around the world! Scuba-diving at the Great Barrier Reef, trekking the ancient Inca trails of Peru and dogging in Blackpool. But what starts as an innocent journey of discovery soon leads to an intricate series of events, culminating in the secret mission. A story of love, revenge and friendship, and by friendship, we mean revenge. Directed by Tom Parry (Pappys, BBC3).

A raggedy Northerner takes you on a journey as he tries to fight his way through hellish hoards of horrors (both external and internal) so that he can hold onto his humanity. But at what cost will victory come? "Engaging, otherworldly and endearingly morose" (Sam Rhodes, Comedy Explosion). Recommended by The Londonist (Camden Fringe 2018).

STAND-UP

Steve Bugeja, as seen on 'Love Island Aftersun', Russell Howard's 'Stand Up Central' and Radio 4's 'Fresh From The Fringe', presents a work in progress show. His last four solo shows have gained a combined 30 4/5 star reviews. Come along and help him create the next one. "Big laughs" (The Guardian).

Team captain from 'Dara O'Briain's Go 8 Bit' bangs on for an hour. Might be adapted bits from his forthcoming book. Might be some anecdotes about his TV show. Might involve playing games if he's not written enough stuff. No idea. He's not started work on it yet. Quality will be variable/poor.

STAND-UP

In a confused and data-drenched world, how can we see the truth of anything and hold on to what's important? A daft but sharp romp through quantum theory, alternate realities, future humans, sciencing, big data, AI, love and a murmuration.

I can't believe someone's actually reading this, how cool is that! Do you reckon they'll go and see the show if I tell them a bit about me? Who are you talking to? Winner Silver BBC Radio 1 Student Radio Award for Creativity. As seen and heard on BBC Wales, Comic Relief, and Talk Radio. I'd say what the show's about but I'm running out of space here.

Hufflepuff was the first (good) nickname Struan got. Come see why the "humble Scotsman" (wwwww, Adelaide Advertiser) got the nickname and whether it's best to be brave, smart, cunning or just nice. If you get the reference you are already on board, if not chances are you haven't read this far. "A highly candid comedic voice" wwww (Voice Mag), "Adorably goofy" wwww (The Music).

Avant-garde double act. David Anthony Whiskey tries, through stand-up, to engage the audience (and Mÿlk) in an open discussion on personal relationships, politics and society. Mÿlk is more concerned with ancient rituals to consort with ageless gods. A battle of questionably good vs definitely evil.

Brighton Spiegeltent: Bosco 250 G7 Old Steine Gardens

A dance/physical theatre solo, inspired by the life of poet and writer Maya Angelou, a woman who fought her whole life for black women, as an activist and feminist . A search for being, seeing and wanting to be seen. A search for identity, security and strength. A search for confession, for conviction, for judgement. Washing all the dirt off to get to the core, to make it visible.

PHYSICAL THEATRE

Körper questions the unconscious way most of us live our lives. We all have our own different rituals which serve to reaffirm our idea of self and nurse our ego, but we rarely stop to consider what we actually base our choices on. Are we really in control of who we grow up to be? What made us who we are, and what happens if we don't conform to the expectations of society?

What do we do in a world where the human experience is so conditioned to endure abuse and suffering? Using dance and spoken word, 'Sullied' challenges us to deconstruct the politics around our bodies and to interrogate the effects that patriarchal ideologies, rape and misogyny has on the human psyche. Gold Ovation Award winner at the National Arts Festival South Africa 2018.

CLOWN

Emerge bring 'the everyday' to life in a physical, humorous and light-hearted piece. 'The Intricate Moments of Everyday' explores the complexities of human emotion and how we navigate our lives around it.

A one-woman show, following a 1950s bachelorette on her journey to find out what it truly means to be lovable. Set to your favourite 1950s hits, actor and writer Carly Jurman entertains with dance, unconventional courtship techniques and a slew of physical romps in this "honest, revealing and highly enjoyable show" (Theatre Fullstop). A show for anyone who longs for love but has no idea how to find it.

PERFORMANCE ART

A ritualistic celebration of each moon phase throughout the marvellous month of May. The dark moon welcomes in the festival, setting our intentions for the month ahead. With the waxing moon we'll build these dreams, reaching juicy fruition at the full moon. And then... With the waning moon... We will reflect. Each is a stand alone ceremony or you can come to all four.

Poetry for people who don't like poetry. Voted 'The Best Poetry Night in the UK' by The Times, Bang Said The Gun has made poetry cool again. A rollercoaster of emotions, it's loud, raucous, political, trivial, serious and very funny. As recommended by Kate Tempest, "It's like mud wrestling with words".

LGBTQ+

Three confused minds, one rather long acronym! Brightonbased trio, Spit the Ink, deliver a fantastic mix of comedy, poetry and spoken word in their Fringe debut. This is a charity event with profits going to MindOut, supporting the mental health needs of Brighton's LGBTQ+ community.

Q. What happens when you move a 12-year-old from Basingstoke to Zambia? A. She swims. Spoken word meets swimming lessons and some early '00s R&B in a touching and comic coming-of-age memoir about learning to fit into your skin. "Thoroughly absorbing" (The Cornishman), "Perfect poetic style" (The F-Word).

POETRY

Fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, uplifting, anthemic tunes punctuate stories and conversation, shedding light on mental health with selfdeprecating honesty and dark humour. "Moments of bright energy shine through" (Storge). "Somewhere between Folk, Gospel and pure Rock'n'Roll" (Liveamp.com)

Vaguely anti-establishment poetry for the postmodern Bohemian. Includes politics, immigration, consumerism and the search for cultural diversity, plus an important rant about poor grammar in 80s pop songs. "Real writing talent, a charismatic and energetic performer" (EdFringeReview).

A cult hit show where adults share embarrassing artifacts they created as teenagers to reveal stories about their lives. For this special, late night, Brighton Fringe edition, the UK chapter presents some of the funniest and most embarrassing pieces from the last 12 months.

Columbus Webb was the first pigeon to swim the Channel at the age of only two and a half weeks. The author and performer of 'Luna's History of Madness' presents her new autobiographical one-woman show about animals, autism, and trying (or not) to fit in. Fun, quirky and heart-warming. Warning: this show may contain birds.

A black (and blue) comedy based on an Ancient Greek tragedy, this addictively-enjoyable, one-woman play is a journey of sex, selfishness, and stilettos.

HISTORICAL

"I was 19 when I had an abortion. Looking back, I think it was a self-destructive attempt to make someone love me more. It didn't work. The prick!" 'All Aboard! At Termination Station' is a comedy cabaret (or summin' like that) and asks the question: Have you ever just closed your eyes and hoped that it'll all just go away? This is a bracing, booming and brash exploration of pro-choice.

Bobby works on Woolies' record counter. Ralph dreams of being a teacher. One kiss and they're hooked. But it's 1967 and their love is illegal. A National Octagon prizewinner. "Full of gasps and chuckles" (Go See This), "Heartwarming, heart-wrenching and heart-breaking" (Frankly My Dear), "Totally spellbinding" (Northern Soul). www.queerstreetproductions.com

SOLO SHOW

Amidst the fresh cigar smoke of a 1920s club, the voice of a girl rings out against the injustice of her uncle's control and to honour her two dead brothers. Shouts of glory and chivalry greet one brother's corpse, whilst shouts of hatred and disgust mock the other. Both receive the tears of Antigone.

SPOKEN WORD

Girl and Gorilla live, handcuffed, in a world of patriarchal gaze. Girl is shaved; Gorilla is hairy. This is a problem - one which they can't solve easily. Klein Blue presents this hugely popular show, breaking apart the taboo of female body hair with clown-like playfulness and infectious energy.

FUNNY

The story of an audacious carer in a residential care home. With an inspection looming, Gem is caught in the eye of the storm, battling against her mischievous clients, ridiculous management and mounds of paperwork. Absolute nightmare.

Where do monsters come from? 'Black Peter' is a retelling of the Bavarian tale of the Krampus. Beneath the shadow of a dead tree, two people explore a secretive and painful shared past, ten years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Come take a stroll through the woods, if you dare.

Tyler sells his body to hungry punters on a nightly basis. But his world is about to be turned upside down when a regular night turning tricks takes a sinister turn. Bleach is a soul-jolting one man show about sex, violence and city living. Multi-award-nominated and winner of the 'Write for the Stage' award for best new writing 2017.

"Why I can smile... and bumble while I smile." The story of Boris Johnson as a Shakespearean tragicomedy, 'Boris Rex' follows its mendacious anti-hero from the boorish days of Oxford University - right through to a blood-soaked General Election - to spin a murky tale of ambition, back-stabbing and ultimately, a national catastrophe. www.charliedupre.com

A few days before the Brexit referendum. A father and a son debate their stance on the vote. Their discussion turns from surreal to grotesque until both of them cast their vote. A show with elements of mime and physical theatre, premiered at the 2018 Avignon Theatre Festival.

Bryony Kimmings returns with her first solo show in nearly a decade. A mythical legend performed straight from a heart still pulsing with pain. Combining personal stories with epic film, soundscapes and ethereal music, the artist creates a powerful and joyful work about motherhood, heartbreak and finding inner strength.

MUSICAL THEATRE

An absurd comedy that blends slapstick, nonsense and existentialism. This is the tale of two inseparable friends, renowned killers, and the most welcome faces on the streets of California. The pair are trapped, and if they don't escape soon, they will surely die. Also, they are both dogs. wwwww (Edfringe Review), wwwww (ThreeWeeks). www.bigeggtheatre.com

One of The Guardian's Best Shows at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018. Tales of woe, tales of science, tales of curses, tales of defiance. Also, some juggling. Reach into Fanny's cabinet for a musical voyage of hilarity. But beware! Somebody's out to sink her ship... "Their energy is boundless, the script fiercely intelligent and the original live music bound to stay dancing through your head" (The Guardian).

PROMENADE

Award-winning musical-comedy duo, the makers of 'A History of Horror', are back with their second addition to the Cinebra anthology. Glenda and Rita are two actresses from the golden era of cinema immortalised in black and white, both struggling to find work in this brutal, unforgiving technicolor world. "Cleverly written and magically performed" (Reviews Hub).

Set in what was once a drying field, 'Clean' tells the tales of seven women in the Laundry Hill area of Brighton from 1870-2020. It explores local history and themes of mental illness, abuse, sexuality, suffrage and sistership, highlighting how much has changed, and hasn't, in 150 years.

Death. A bit grim, isn't it? Morbid, macabre and even unmentionable, but does it have to be that way? A funny, surreal, reflective and honest show about death. Laugh, cry, stick two fingers up at the Grim Reaper and discover why talking about death is actually life-affirming.

Cooper, attempts to stage one of his "legendary" exploits to the USA, with help from two hapless drama students. The latest comedy from emerging theatre company Laughing Mirror, who return after last year's successful run of 'White Girls'.

Michael and Ana have had no communication for six months. Hearing Michael's painting career is on the downslide, Ana takes pity on him and hires him to paint the studio apartment which they shared for four years, to prepare it to sell. She leaves for a couple of days to find he has indeed painted. But not the colour she left.

4 April 1968. Four years after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for his dynamic leadership of the Civil Rights movement, Martin Luther King was assassinated. Set on the night of his shooting in a Tennessee motel room, this new solo play explores the extraordinary man behind the legend.

Joe Foster's (Winner of South Coast Comedian of the Year 2015) and Phil Jerrod's (Winner Best Debut Show Leicester 2015) royal f*ck around. Two of Brighton's best stand-ups working up new material, plus there's a bar so you know, at least you can have a pint. "Reassuringly Confident" (The List), "Casual brilliance" (The Guardian).

"You don't deserve to suffer so you play the game. Everyone has to play the game". Based on a true story, 'F*ck Polite!' is for all who feel forgotten and restricted. It's a protest against the unspoken agreement: fit in or get out. Two sisters, two cultures - one big secret. Is this family dispute destined to bring them together or push them apart?

Andrew Byron (Anton in 'Killing Eve') has made a career on screen playing Russian baddies that usually end up dead. This is a story devised by him to portray another kind of Russian that you don't see on your screens: Innokenty is a simple, decent man seeking his fortune in "... the land of the Shakespeare and the Bananarama". His troubled past, however, threatens to catch up with him.

How can a truth be told? A betrayed schoolboy, a Japanese soldier and the inventor of the saxophone. Three extraordinary stories are brought together to show how, when a secret is spoken, it can save your life. Three times winner at Brighton Fringe 2016. Unmissable.

Karl and Brian, a parasitic worm and a white blood cell, both fighting over their habitat in the intestines. In a world threatened by the problem of coexistence and compliance, is it still possible to be 'Gut Buddies'?

Harry Clayton-Wright presents a fortnight of durational performances in collaboration with The Spire. Every day for fourteen days, a new work, character, act or ritual is created and performed in front of audiences over an 8 hour period. No day the same. The only constant is Harry. "Extraordinary" (The Guardian), "Genius" (Cosmopolitan).

In this frantic new comedy play, we follow Harvey, a successful man who just doesn't have the ability to say no. Writer and performer Paul Richards explores our need to please, and why sometimes it's healthy to just stop, sit in a shed, eat biscuits and pretend to be Meat Loaf.

FUNNY

Set in a dingy two-bed flat in London, this is the story of Frank and George, two struggling actresses living in a pre-#MeToo world. As they suffer through humiliating commercial auditions, sleazy industry professionals, empty bank accounts, family pressures and jealousy, their drama school peer, Guy, is enjoying a meteoric rise to success.

'#YOLO' and 'Tomorrow I'll Be Happy'

Hysteria by Terry Johnson

Ariel Company Theatre [GB]

TRAGEDY

12+

FUNNY

In '#YOLO', Jack gets blind-sided by a revelation about his health, getting propelled into an adult world. In 'Tomorrow I'll be Happy', Darren is killed in a homophobic hate crime and we learn that all is not as it first seems.

Sigmund Freud meets Salvador Dali, and the result is comedy chaos. The serious world of real life and death, the world of art, science and the human mind is swept up in the crazy world of theatrical farce. A play that's always sparkling and witty, but also touches the heart.

Have you ever thought "Wow, I could push that person in front of that train". Dismantling the myth that OCD is just a quirky personality trait, a short play incorporating stand-up comedy, physical theatre and real life experiences.

Is Sally Bowles a sophisticated thrill-seeker or vulnerable innocent abroad? She's certainly a fascinating mass of contradictions. The play that 'Cabaret' is based on, with all the divine decadence of 1931 Berlin. But soon the carefree indulgence will end as the Nazis smash their way to power. www.bluedeviltheatre.co.uk

A millennial rabbit wants to find love, but she's having some serious problems with her contraception... An absurd, comic and poignant exploration of the darker side of contraception through the eyes (and ears) of the inimitable Diane. "Claire Parry is a standout" (William Nash, A Spy In The Stalls). www.claireparry.co.uk

How do I be a woman? How will I know if I've fallen in love? Can your virginity grow back? Can putting a tampon in kill you?! Set to a 90s pop and hip-hop soundtrack, 'ish...' revisits first times, second chances, push-up bras and waxing disasters in order to figure out the things we thought we would have known by now.

This exciting showcase includes some of musical theatre's finest numbers, with music from a range of composers and dances in a variety of styles, from tap to contemporary. Last year's show received rave reviews. See these talented students before they forge a path into the West End, following graduates before them.

In the 1980s, this coming-out novel broke new ground as a positive image of growing up gay. During the Section 28 debates it was accused of not only promoting, but of glorifying gay sex. This adaptation brings David Rees' book to the stage for the first time as we follow Ewan's journey.

Sam can't quite find the words to explain it. But then again, he's never tried before. With dad gone, the truth's getting harder to swallow. 'PULP' is a new, autobiographical piece of theatre exploring our experiences with grief, toxic masculinity, and what it means to be a man.

A combination of cataclysmic events results in the extinction of the human race, leaving behind an AI being programmed to recreate humanity when the time is right. Humanity must thrive... but at what cost? Originally commissioned by the London Science Museum as 'Humanity 2.0'.

Neil Gore brings this witty, humorous and absorbing classic book to life in his one-man magic lantern show. Based on the famous book by Robert Tressell, it features political conjuring, music and songs echoing life in the building trades of Edwardian England.

An ageing dominatrix is surprised when purple-suited Death pops by for a chat and to summon her to the afterlife. As she re-examines her life choices, she finds that, once again, she holds the whip hand. Who needs a man? Featuring the songs of Annie Lennox and Eurythmics.

"They call me witch. A teeth-gnasher. A shape-shifter. When a man says a woman turns into a hare, it means she were too quick for him!" Based on a 19th century Sussex tale, this piece of English Eerie explores themes of female sexuality, ageing and loss as kinds of alchemy.

Fast-paced, brilliantly funny one-woman show starring Ella Ainsworth from TV's 'Hustle' and 'Doc Martin'. Through a grotesque and absurd exploration of social anxiety in a posttruth world, this bold new writing poses the question, "How much of our lives and stories are performative, and how far are we willing to go to protect them?" www.indigoproductions.london

'Scattering Salt' is a performance and ritual, a ghost story and an installation. It runs under an hour, and there are six performers. Created for an underground space that's close to the sea, the show is set in the Police Cells Museum, creating the perfect ambiance for spectators looking for a deeply reflective and immersive theatrical experience.

PERFORMANCE ART

People always ask me, "What's it like inside your head?" Well... it's easier if I show you. Using spoken-word poetry, home video footage and a hip-hop-inspired soundtrack, 'Sisterson Foods' is a brutally honest testimonial of a young man's continual struggle with mental health.

'Sleeping Beauty' is a participatory performance that approaches sexuality through power and role play. The performance offers an opportunity to carry out fantasies with a 'sleeping' person. The participant can choose to be either the sleeper or the visitor, and bring accessories or props to their liking. www.todellisuus.fi

Strode's College Performing Arts students will be performing 'Extremism' by Anders Lustgarten. A group of students get locked in a classroom after they have taken their classmate Jamal away for performing an extremist act. Watch as the students reveal how quickly mindsets can change whilst under the influence of each other.

What do we do in a world where the human experience is so conditioned to endure abuse and suffering? Using dance and spoken word, 'Sullied' challenges us to deconstruct the politics around our bodies and to interrogate the effects that patriarchal ideologies, rape and misogyny has on the human psyche.

MUSICAL THEATRE

A hilarious cabaret musical about depression that sings and throws glitter about how it's OK to not be OK. Written by Olivier winner Jon Brittain ('Rotterdam', 'Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho'), music by Matthew Floyd Jones (Frisky & Mannish). It's a joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugarcoated, unrelenting and completely super happy show! Except for the bits about depression.

A fictitious talk show with a live audience. The show features a guest from the afterlife: Käthe Petersen, a social worker who was active between the years 1932 and 1966 in Germany, fighting for the morality of women. Behind the facade of medals lies a bottomless pit.

Is it possible to communicate with the dead? Griffin and Jones intend to find out. Face your fears, and join them as they use techniques from Victorian séance rooms to peer into the Great Beyond, and ask the question "Is anybody there?". Sceptics and believers welcome.

An impromptu gathering of six friends reveal secrets and truths that convey the superficial nature of their friendship. Eventually, the final truth emerges which shocks us all. The consequences are catastrophic. Essentially, the message is this: that no matter how hard we try to keep secrets hidden, especially dark ones, the truth will always come out in the end.

Two stories. An English man moves from London to rural Ireland for love. But it's the 1980s and, when tragedy strikes, he finds he has precious few rights. In 1970s Dublin, an ambitious civil servant finds her career threatened by blackmail. Does she just submit? Or fight back? Winners of the National GALA Award for Irish Arts and Literature 2017.

PUPPETRY

It's 1984 and the author of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy', Douglas Adams, is in trouble. Famously bad with deadlines, Adams has been banished to a London hotel by his publisher to finish his new book, already months late. But with a whole universe of distractions - including a talking plastic duck who seems to know a worrying amount about him - finishing the book seems infinitely improbable...

An alternative coming of age story about the friendship between a girl, an octopus and two goldfish. Puppets, masks, and live music. "Funny, subversive, deeply philosophical and beautiful" (Fringe Review), "Heartfelt, anarchic theatre at its best" (Queer Puppets Cabaret), "Full of charm and creativity" (Broadway Baby).

There's a nose on the loose in the city, and it's not the only one. The Purveyors of Found Noses are on their scent, ready to reunite lost owners with their wayward nostrils. Some noses are easy; others lie dusty on the rack for years. In the end, all the owners have to do is try on the noses and the rest will reveal itself. Funny, poetic and riotous. GB Met actors with an original show inspired by Gogol's 'The Nose.'

A play about friendship, life, the terrifying feeling of trying to make sense of it all, and how a simple, seemingly insignificant action, can have an effect that reverberates throughout time.

In 1980 the Swiss artists Fischli & Weiss started thinking about categories for possible sculptures: history, culture, sports, science, memories, and more. Their clay figures became the inspiration and starting point for our show 'The World We Live In'. This workshop discusses and questions the world we live in, the categories of Fischli & Weiss, and then translates these into clay figures. LET'S CLAY!

SONS EA

Join us for a dance and physical workshop like no other. To discover yourself. Is there only one truth, only one way of being male and one way of being female? One way to dress, to impress and one way to be successful? Is money the one thing that measures it all? Is there only one system to follow, one direction to go, one winner? Only one goal? Only one view, one opinion, one identity? Only one body?
