joue le genre returns to Edinburgh Fringe Festival after two years with their new work, What Goes On In Front Of Closed Doors.
Applications opened today for participants to join the Network of Independent Critics (NIC) for their second season at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, from 4th – 28th August 2017.
After first seeing previous show Labels in 2015 at the Edinburgh Fringe and again at Theatre Royal Stratford East in 2016 on tour (see my full review here), I have eagerly had my ear to the ground for any hint at a future production from Worklight Theatre. Luckily, this year they present and tour their next work, Love Thy Monster, where I first caught a work in progress showing at The Pleasance, Islington before it rushes away to Perth, Australia and eventually up to the Edinburgh Fringe once more for an official unveiling.

‘An incendiary new play about power, fear and fanaticism’ is how the programme describes Gareth Jandrell’s latest work for Dawn State Theatre Company. The plot revolves around a touring trio of performers – Potts (Christopher Birks) and Nowell (Dan Nicholson) achieved fame throughout the county of Lancaster by dispatching of the much feared Pendle Witches. Accompanied by a disgruntled Jennet (Amy Blair), the youngest Pendle child that survived the witch trial, they tour the country regaling others with their tale, in an attempt to regain their lost popularity.
