Bringing the production back to Adelaide Fringe in 2020, I wondered what GOM would bring to the table considering they – and A Simple Space – have been well-known …

FRINGE 2020: Friendly Feminism for the Mild Mannered – 5K – Gluttony

At the beginning of Friendly Feminism for the Mild Mannered, cabaret performer Millicent Sarre asks the audience to shout out any stereotypes of feminists – and feminism – that the audience can think of. “Man hater”, “no sense of humour”, and “hairy armpits” are all hurled towards the stage, and by the end of this delightful …

Adelaide Fringe 2020 – Shell Shock – 5K

by Riccardo Barone “Shell Shock is a glimpse into that world of confusion, doubt and disconnection. It’s not about war, it’s about what happens when people come home when the war is over” (Capt Gemma Morgan). Those eyes have witnessed brutality and murder, pain and blood, brotherhood and mercy, won’t be able to stare at …

Blanc de Blanc Encore will capture your imagination and leave you wanting more. A blend of cabaret, circus, burlesque and champagne — it’s extravagant, hedonistic and unlike anything else at the Fringe.

FRINGE 2020: Cassie & The Lights – 4K – RCC Fringe

Patch of Blue Theatre is no stranger to the Adelaide Fringe, returning to RCC after their previous hit, We Live By The Sea. Writing theatre that is about those doing it tough, those with that little extra challenge, or developing understanding of others’ situations seems to be Patch of Blue’s strength, because Cassie & The Lights is a beautiful …

Fringe 2020 – Circus and Physical Theatre – The Black Blues Brothers – Cornucopia at Gluttony – 3.5K

By Ben Watson Acrobatically brilliant, theatrically poor. This show will provide entertainment, their airborne potential is magnificent. Whilst jumping, flipping and tumbling they will also attempt many scenes of comedy, often missing the mark. An adolescent crowd can accept this level of clunky mime-orientated humour however anyone looking for a fair dinkum comedy should most …

FRINGE 2020 – Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster – 5K – RCC Fringe

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein gets a make-over complete with soaring vocals, a 21st century twist, and the UK’s best beat-boxer to boot. The show poses the question: who are the monsters in this world, and who’s (or what’s) to blame for their creation? The talented BAC Beatbox Academy from London have brought their fantastic show to the Adelaide …
