FRINGE 2017: THEATRE – Late: A Cowboy Song – Tuxedo cat – 4K

It’s likely that a pretty low percentage of people are still in a relationship with their childhood sweetheart fifteen, or twenty, years later. Mary and Crick are in that minority. They’ve been together since they were eight; an arrangement that seems to have been maintained by his utter bliss with his role as the stay-at-home …

FRINGE 2017: THEATRE – A Regular Little Houdini – Bakehouse Theatre – 4.5K

One of the quintessential Adelaide Fringe theatre experiences has got to be an engaging story, told by an engaging solo writer-performer, on an almost bare black stage. It’s a genre that allows the performer’s craft to shine through; their words to create the settings, and their portrayal to form multiple believable characters through small nuances …

FRINGE 2017: THEATRE – The Baby Farmer – Bakehouse Theatre – 5K

For the poor and downtrodden lowest classes of Victorian London, life was appallingly bleak, and often short. Yet, over a century later, it’s possible to find a peculiar, fanciful, beauty connected to the horror that was the daily life of these people; which lends itself so well to tales of the macabre. It is within …

Ophelia’s Shadow, is one of several abridged, adapted and modernised versions of Shakespeare’s plays that are on offer this Fringe.

FRINGE: THEATRE – My Name is Saoirse – Noel Lothian Hall, Adelaide Botanic Garden – 4K

In My Name is Saoirse, the prose of writer/performer Eva O’Connor accomplishes that feat which Irish writers seem to do so well – a simple story is told with eloquence and honesty. The words create a detailed and intriguing depiction of the world in which Saoirse lives, both physically and inside her head. It’s a …

FRINGE 2017: Stories in the Dark – Holden Street Theatres – 4K

Performed in the Manse at Holden Street, this is an intimate experience, with audience members filling seating around the walls of a room no bigger than an average bedroom, and clustered on pouffes on the floor. Absolute darkness is essential, so do yourself and your fellow audience members a favour and switch off all phones …

FRINGE 2017: Angel by Henry Naylor – Holden Street Theatres – 4.5K

There is a war happening right now. People are fleeing, people are fighting, people are dying. On the other side of the world, we often only see the “after” images – the destruction and rubble, the streets deserted but for a handful of men with guns, and the nameless dead bodies. This can accentuate the …

FRINGE 2016: THEATRE – The Ballad of Frank Allen – Tuxedo Cat – 5K

Frank Allen (Shane Adamczak), polite and amiable janitor, is paying less than adequate attention at work one night and manages to accidentally shrink himself. Somehow (Frank’s not really sure how, so neither are we) he ends up in the beard of Al (St John Cowcher), a minion at the dodgy burger joint next door, whose …

FRINGE 2016: THEATRE – Trampoline – Tuxedo Cat – 5K

Dreams are strange things; no-one really knows why we have them. Sometimes they’re hilarious, sometimes they’re terrifying, often they’re completely mundane. For Matt (Shane Adamczak), they’re the single most engrossing thing in his life. They permeate his day-to-day existence; making it hard for him to know what’s real and what’s not, impeding his ability to …
