BRIGHTON FRINGE: And The Rope Still Tugging At Her Feet – The Warren

And The Rope Still Tugging At My Feet

Writer: Caroline Burns Cooke Director: Colin Watkeys Reviewer: Daniel Perks   Caroline Burns Cooke, writer and performer, takes centre stage. Tired and exhausted in a shabby black dress, she spends the next hour pouring out her tragedy based on Joanne Hayes and the 1984 Kerry Babies Scandal. It may be inspired by past events, but And The Rope Still Tugging ...

BRIGHTON FRINGE: Sellotape Sisters – The Warren, Brighton

Signal Theatre's Sellotape Sisters

Writer: Lee Mattinson Director: Robert Wolstenholme Reviewer: Daniel Perks   Seeing Sellotape Sisters at the Brighton Fringe Festival presents an immediate contrast. A city renowned for Gay Pride hosts a play that highlights how only a few decades beforehand, this overly flamboyant and visual celebration would have been completely avant-garde and unacceptable. It is 1966 and homosexuality is illegal. Phyllis ...

BRIGHTON FRINGE: Broken Glass – New Venture Theatre

Broken Glass

Writer: Arthur Miller Director: Jerry Lyne Reviewer: Fergus Morgan   There must be a reason, one assumes, why post-1970 Arthur Miller plays are so rarely revived. Compared to titanic titles such as All My Sons (1947), Death Of A Salesman (1949) and The Crucible (1950), names like The American Clock (1974) and The Last Yankee (1991) sound like tambourines next ...

BRIGHTON FRINGE: The Brighton Killers – The Old Police Cells Museum

The Brighton Killers

Writer: Nigel Fairs Reviewer: Fergus Morgan   Everyone shares a morbid fascination with murderers. It’s just a fact. And it’s a fact that Nigel Fairs exploits in The Brighton Killers, his 80-minute play about killers from the south coast, staged atmospherically in The Old Police Cells Museum. It’s part promenade production, part museum tour, and all sinister, spooky, bloodstained fun. ...

BRIGHTON FRINGE: The Man With The Golden Pen – Rialto Theatre

Writer: Mark Burgess Director: Louise Jameson Reviewer: Fergus Morgan There are few literary creations, perhaps none, as successful as James Bond: over 100 million books sold worldwide, the third highest-grossing movie franchise of all time, and a handful of silver screen legends. But, for all his universal popularity, 007 was once solely the property of his charismatic creator, Ian Fleming. ...
