Sparks Review at Edinburgh Fringe

REVIEW | Sparks | Edinburgh Fringe

Sparks is a beautifully poignant show telling the story of a woman searching for love amidst grief. Performed by Jessica Butcher and Anoushka Lucas, they tell her story through both music and monologue. After seeing Flipping the Bird Theatre’s 2016 Edinburgh Fringe production of Torch, a show that I still think about today, it was…

REVIEW | Loop | Edinburgh Fringe

Crossing three generations, five decades and multiple popular music styles, Boxless Theatre’s Loop tells the story of a family’s dynamic across the ages through music.

Sat at a table draped in a black cloth, her eyes widen as she introduces us to the hypnotically poetic narrative. Sleepwalk Collective have created an incredibly immersive piece of theatre that explores…

REVIEW | Two Man Show | Rash Dash Theatre

Rash Dash Theatre bring their production Two Man Show straight from the Edinburgh Fringe, directly to HOME for their Orbit Festival. It is an eccentric, bold and thought-provoking performance that challenges the ideas around gender stereotyping. Embarking to expose the issues with patriarchy, the two women and faces of Rash Dash Theatre Abbi Greenland and Helen Goalen, play two…
