BA(Hons) Acting and Creative Performance are off to the Brighton Fringe Festival in May.  Here is your chance to see a preview of the shows!  Two shows each night so it’s two for the price of one!

Wednesday 24th May

Dot. Dot. Dot.

An absurdist play following and exploring a dysfunctional relationship. Drawing inspiration from Samuel Beckett’s ‘Waiting for Godot’ we muddle through their unstable network of support and neglect as they struggle to understand each other and themselves.

Just Broken

If you are only half of who you are, would there still be enough of you? Mary suffers with demons in her life day in and day out. “Just Broken” an original story explores the unstable relationship of a couple with mental health issues. Is anyone in this world normal?

Thursday 25th May

The Stroop Effect

What is the difference between reality and belief? What is the difference between being awake and asleep? Brace yourself for an epic Physical Theatre piece; entrance yourself in to a lucid dream-state.  Sweet dreams…

The Fool, The Champ and The Bandito

Join us on a journey where we will explore the effects of laughter, alcohol and the random rubbish three actors can come up with. Of course we can’t forget to comment on politics and social events, so don’t worry, it’s not all for the hell of it.



Make a night of it by booking a pre-show meal at Food @ the Mercury. Simply add either a two (£13.95) or three course (£15.95) meal to your basket along with your theatre tickets.

No need to choose what you are having in advance – simply select from the delicious options available on the night.

This show has been paired with our Daffodil menu. Click here to take a look!
