Tatterdemalion (FRINGEWORLD 2015)

FRINGEWORLD’s Deluxe venue provided the ideal location for Tatterdemalion, a charmingly disheveled mélange of mime, magic, puppetry and spooky theatrical departures. Sole performer, Henry Maynard of Flabbergast Theatre, emerged as a bleary eyed, Rip Van Winkle-esque figure, and charmingly clowned about while making use of the intimate space which placed most audience members within reach of his playful grasp.

Review by Charlotte Guest

Edie and AJ are a young couple getting it all wrong: marriage, parenthood, life. On the brink of separation, the couple decides to dedicate a weekend to ‘restarting’ their relationship.

Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind

Review by Charlotte Guest Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind is a mammoth performance disguised as a lowbrow theatrical romp. What the Neo-Futurists packed into a 60-minute show was nothing short of colossal, ranging from slapstick comedy and mind-boggling word play to social commentary with gravitas. Too Much Light is designed to never … Read more
