Fringe 2019 – Anya Anastasia : The Executioners – 5K

A highly entertaining performance full of subtle satire and cutting wit. Self-appointed superhero Anastasia opens her show via live facetime, thus setting the scene for what is to follow.

FRINGE 2017 – 80s Kid’s Disco – Royal Croquet Club – 4K

The title of this show is pretty gosh-darn self-explanatory: a disco, for kids, set to 80s music. Bam. That’s exactly what’s offered, and exactly what is delivered by Austrian DJ Peter Baecker.
