BRIGHTON BITES: Sheer Drop Theatre – Wet Bread

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, Sheer Drop Theatre tells us about their show, Wet Bread, which they’ll be performing at Sweet Waterfront.


How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A satire about left-wing activism in a right-wing world

Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
It’s a great festival to launch new work

How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
We’ve been getting political! With a general election just round the corner, Wet Bread looks at the aftermath of the last time the country went to the polls – so now is the perfect time to catch a bit of political comedy.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It’s a one-woman multi-character show performed entirely in dialogue by the supremely talented Morag Sims

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
Model Organisms by Cast Iron Theatre

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Be nice to everyone – it’s much more fun that way

If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
Dairy-free Vegan strawberry – bright red, sold with a free Vote Corbyn badge

Wet Bread runs at Brighton Fringe 9 to 14 May 2017
