Back by popular demand for 2017, our Brighton Bites series offer short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into shows performing at England’s largest arts festival. Hopefully, they will whet your appetite to try something new at this year’s Brighton Fringe.
Here, NorthSouthTheatre tells us about their show, Pals, which they’ll be performing at Sweet Waterfront.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
Life long friends volunteer to join the western front with visions of French ladies and adventure but what they find will take more than their sense of humour to bring them home.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
Close to London and was recommended to us by artists who had already been plus there’s a beach.
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
With lots of coffee, cake and very important meetings.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
We all know about WW1, our story focuses on the friendship and humour between men in a difficult situation and one of the actors gets his bum out.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
All in by Embolon Theatre sounds good
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?

If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
