Dance, Dahl & drama at Reading Fringe

We’re always proud of Reading and never more than this week with the reaction to last Saturday’s tragedy. And we’re proud to play our own small role in making this town such a vibrant place. While we can’t meet in person this year we’re excited about the wide range of events we are bringing you online from 17-26 July


From solo shows like Big Girl and The Legacy of William Ireland to international drama & dance project Love, Sex & Zombies we have a variety of theatre shows from 17 July. There’s silent physical comedy & magic with José Pedro Fortuna’s Entrée, a radio drama told from the perspective of a teddy bear in Not So Quiet on the Welsh Front and monologues in From The Rooftops. Plus we have a quartet of compelling two-handers: darkly funny thriller Hitman and Her, feminist folk-horror Sary, hellzapoppin’ Shakespeare The Travesty of Richard III and climate change play We’ll Dance on the Ash of the Apocalypse

From 17-26 July we will bringing over 50 events – including cabaret, comedy, film, panels, photography & much more – direct to wherever you are with Reading Fringe Digital.
