4th to 22nd June 2019

New Wimbledon Theatre Studio

#FROM THE FRINGE SEASON


Introducing… our #FromTheFringe season 2019. For three weeks this June each night will be something different. We’ve selected from the very best submissions, a range of exciting theatre-makers and comedians to preview their work before they take them off to various fringe festivals and we cannot wait to introduce them to you.

But we are forgetting the most exciting part, see more, save more! The more shows you choose to see, the more you save overall! Our Season Saver rate allows you, in the same ticket order, to choose two different shows and get £2 off each ticket, yet if you choose three of more different shows you get a whopping £3 off per ticket. In most cases that’s a saving of 20 -30% on ticket price.

For an inexpensive ticket price with multi-buy offers available, you can afford to experiment and find a new favourite artist or style, all whilst enjoying an ice cold beer from Wimbledon Brewery, the official Beer of #FromTheFringe.

From stand-up to drama, children’s theatre to sketch comedy and musical delights, they’ve got something for everyone! This season will see the return of local favourites, comedy troupe Bad Clowns with a brand new show Cult Classic, whilst Edinburgh Fringe sell-out In Loyal Company is sure to exceed your dramatic expectations. Regarding comedians you can see Ivo Graham, Tom Houghton, Kate Lucas and Simon Brodkin to name but a few.

Events include:
In Memoriam – 4th June 20:00. Do you want to escape your life? Now you can. Memoriam is a social media platform like no other.
Kate Lucas – 5th June 19:45. In a generation that only sees black and white, no grey, this multi-award winning musical comedian offers her take on how extreme and intolerant we’ve become.
Kae Kurd Kurd Your Enthusiasm – 5th June 21:30. Multi award nominated comedian and fast rising online star Kae Kurd workshops material for his brand new show.
George Rigden: Spooning with Uri – A True story of Friendship, Autographs & Cutlery – 6th June 19:45. In the wake of operation yewtree & #metoo, this is the bizarre but true story about friendship, autographs and cutlery.
Gráinne Maruire: guys – it’s problematic – 6th June 21:30. Gráinne Maguire brings a new show about anxiety, effort and how long she can be happy for (two minutes tops)
amendments: A Play on Words – 7th June 20:00. Fear of offending an increasingly sensitive populous is widespread, and any language deemed inappropriate or discriminatory is strictly forbidden to the company’s no list.
Bad Clowns: Cult Classic – 8th June 20:00. An interactive experience in which the audience finds themselves in the hands of three friendly faces of a horrific, demonic cult.
In Loyal Company – 10th June 20:00. In Loyal Company is the incredible true story of missing World War II soldier and prisoner of War Arthur Robinson, written and performed by his great-nephew, David William Bryan.
Comedy Round Mine – (image but no copy yet) – 11th June 19:45. Pull up a chair and enjoy a night of world class entertainment, right on your doorstep. Featuring the funniest comedians from the circuit and TV, performing stand-up, musical comedy and more!
Simon Brodkin: Let Me Introduce Myself – 12th June 20:00. You may know him as “comedy legend” Lee Nelson, or as the “unfunny pillock” who gave Theresa May a P45, but you won’t know him as “tiny Jew” Simon Brodkin.
Blink – 13th June 20:00. Blink is an unusual love story. A story of loneliness and grief. A story of two awkward humans coming together in their own unique way. Nick Doody: I Will Milk You – 14th June 19:45. Only by coming to see this show can you discover why it is called ‘I Will Milk You’. It’s probably just a title. Come and see!
Steve Allen: Don’t Pay Attention to the News – 14th June 21:30. Brexit, obesity, Trump, it can all get a bit much. If you have noticed just how much news there is these days this is the show that can help you.
John Robertson’s Sweaty Sexy Party Party – 15th June 20:00. It’s a concert. It’s a party. It’s a stand-up show. It’s a riot. It’s whatever we want to make it tonight.
Ruby Redfort – 16th June 14:45 & 19:45. What would you do if a super secret agency asked you to be their new codebreaker? If you said yes, there’s a certain hero you should meet…
100 Ways to Tie a Shoelace – 17th June 20:00. Since the accident, Kat’s having trouble with her memory. Her only escape from her muddled mind is a hospital ward TV. Mix-ups, mayhem and muscle memory. There’s never a dull moment.
Michael Odewale #BLACKBEARSMATTER – 18th June 19:45. A fresh new voice known for delivering sharp, slick and beautifully executed content, Odewale is set to take the comedy world by storm.
Bananas – 18th June 21:30. Anna Banana can put words together that if sung would be so elegant, and if rapped would be lit!
Ivo Graham: The Game of Life (Work in Progress) – 19th June 19:00. More hilariously anxious blather from one of the most hilariously anxious blatherers in the business.
Tom Houghton: Edinburgh Preview – 19th June 21:00. Having been sent away at age six years old to the all boy environment, the world is turned upside down when the school decides to go co-ed for the first time and allow girls to join.
The Black Cat – 20th June 20:00. Balanced between the hilarious and the horrific, this show reimagines a macabre classic. It revels in the darkness that hides under the surface. It will get catty. Meow.
Hip Hip I’m Gay – 21st & 22nd June 20:00. HIP HIP I’M GAY! is a comedy cabaret that follows real-life stories and experiences of coming out and the mental health struggles people have faced alongside their sexual identity.

The Rotunda Theatre, Cutty Sark, King William Walk, London SE10 9HT

Red Dragonfly Productions present:

 MONKEY AND THE WHITE BONE DEMON

TAKING FLIGHT: SHORT PLAY FESTIVAL

TOM JONES

Can a Chinese Classic be performed by a Mixed-British Cast?

A cast of British South Asian, British Caucasian, British East Asian, and Mixed-Race actors will be performing in Chinese Classic Monkey and the White Bone Demon in London in June.

Actor Sunjay Midda from BBC’s Doctors, OffWestEnd Award nominated British playwright and performer Ross Ericson, British Malaysian actress Michelle Lee (Hummingbird, Strangers, The Bill), and Mixed-race actress Ainsleigh barber (BBC’s His Dark Materials) are amongst the company of nine who will be performing in Red Dragonfly’s Repertory Season in Cutty Sark Gardens, Greenwich between 7 and 16 June.

Red Dragonfly Productions was founded after RSC’s The Orphan of Zhao debacle and has been touring Chinese classics and East Asian stories and championing British East Asian (BEA) artists around the UK since 2013. This year, however, the company has taken quite a turn in artistic direction in casting British Caucasian, British South Asian and Mixed-Race actors in their adaptation of a Chinese classic - Monkey.

“By having companies that are only made up of a specific ethnicity,” says Michelle Yim, British-Chinese actress and founder of Red Dragonfly Productions, “I fear we are stumbling towards some kind of segregated theatre, and that was not why I started up Red Dragonfly. We should share each other’s stories and by doing so grow as artists and as a community. We tour extensively around the UK and our audiences, I am pleased to say, are very representative of the local communities. Yes they are predominantly white but they also include East Asian, South Asian and Black faces, and that is what I feel theatre should be about - it is a place for us to come together and share stories - because our stories are for everyone and, especially in a time when Britain is so divided, we need to be inclusive.”

Monkey and The White Bone Demon is a story taken from the Chinese classic 'A Journey To The West'. The cast will also rep in Taking Flight New Writing Festival, short new plays from an Eastern perspective by emerging British playwrights, and a hilarious stage adaptation of Henry Fielding's 'Tom Jones', a bawdy romp through 18th Century Somersetshire.

When asked if Red Dragonfly is not afraid of the controversy that might arise similar to RSC’s incident in 2013, Yim replied: “Where does it say what race a monkey god, a pig demon and a river demon are? The fantastical nature of Monkey’s story is perfect for a mixed and diverse cast. We are also performing it in Rep which needs a diverse cast, and by including Tom Jones in the programme our cast get the opportunity to appear in a classic British play - something BAME actors have very little opportunity to do.

The productions are part of a travelling theatre and film festival that will be visiting Greenwich for the first time from 7th June to 16th June this year. Nomad Festival will literally pop-up at Cutty Sark grounds in its own 14m Geodesic Dome.
