5 Star Hit Show Direct From Edinburgh Fringe
Direct from a sold out run and critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe, Belfast Boy comes to Brighton.

A tour-de-force solo show written by Kat Woods and performed by Declan Perring, Belfast Boy is based on true events.

Martin Hall's GP refers him to a psychologist as he is having trouble sleeping. We discover how Martin and his family have to flee Belfast in the 1970s and set off for a safe house in England. Here his brothers fall in and out with the law breaking his mother’s heart with each dalliance.

"A stunning portrayal from Declan Perring who somehow squeezes a stadium-sized performance into this tiny basement space." The Stage

The Muddy Choir
A new play by Jesse Briton to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War for young audiences aged 13+
Commissioned and produced by Theatre Centre.
The summer of 1917 and the third battle for Ypres is lurching towards its bloody conclusion. Young soldiers Will, Rob, and Jumbo are thrust into a landscape starkly different to the playing fields and estates of their Sunderland home. When the trio’s singing causes a disturbance up the line they face unwelcome attention from their commanding officers. Is music their ticket away from the front, as Robbie dreams, or will the passion it brings about prove more dangerous than bullets and gas?
The Muddy Choir is a story about boys growing up and the humanising power of music. Commissioned and produced by Theatre Centre, the play has been written by Jesse Briton to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. The play, which includes period songs, tells the story of three young boys serving with the Durham Light Infantry in 1917.
“In this centenary year, there is a particular significance in bringing to venues work that reflects the reality of the First World War for the millions caught up in it, including so many young people.” ~ Jesse Briton, Playwright

Promises made. Pacts broken. Betrayal. Deceit. Romance. Love! The choice is simple. But what would you do? Love? Or betray?

Brighton Comedy Fringe
Two alien ambassadors have travelled millions of miles to find out if love is the drug they need to save their dying planet. It’s in the air, it’s in the way you comb your hair… but what on Earth is love?

Taking recorded interviews from the inhabitants of earth, these two creatures build a hilarious scrapbook of advice for those who just don’t know… at all.

‘Behind all of the buffoonery (and there’s a lot) are two clear, sharp and utterly brilliant comic minds.’ ★★★★★

Brighton Comedy Fringe
A bounding comedy for your bitter heart. An awful story, beautifully told.

We fell side by side, Vincent and I, like two eggs from a tabletop. For 40 falling stories, Vincent shared his story. It was awful, disgusting and really funny. I'd like to tell it to you.

Co-creator of The Lounge Room Confabulators (winner of the Underbelly Edinburgh Award 2011), the sole idiot behind A Night to Dismember (runner-up Best Comedy and Best Comedy Performer Auckland Fringe 2013) presents a stupid new study of guilt, grief and gravity.

Written by Ann-Marie MacDonald
this is an award-winning comedy. Constance, a young professor of English Literature, goes on a subconscious journey of self-discovery. She is magically whisked first to Othello and then to Romeo & Juliet. We find that our tragic heroines are actually pretty gutsy gals and that Romeo and Othello are not all they have been portrayed.
With laughs and opportunities for bawdiness this is an excellent piece of entertainment.

"That is the story of our beginning. And this is the story of…the end’
Lovesong intertwines a couple in their 20s with the same man and woman a lifetime later. Their past and present selves collide in this haunting and beautiful tale of togetherness. All relationships have their ups and downs; the optimism of youth becomes the wisdom of experience.
Love is a leap of faith. Leap with me.
"Like love itself, Lovesong can take your breath away" - The Observer
