Richard III - Edfringe Review

It is always exciting to find a reworking of a Shakespeare classic with a woman at the centre. In this case Shakespeare’s arch villain, Richard III – a play that came to define not only the man but was the prime example of a play as propoganda, for several hundred years. Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015

Fraxi Queen of the Forest - Edfringe Review

Fraxi is an Ash tree who protects and nourishes her fellow creatures by providing them air, shelter, and a place to call their home. In a beautiful mix of story, music and physical theatre we see her grow to maturity, to become Queen of the Forest. But nothing stays the same, change is happening all around the trees and tragedy strikes when an airborne disease, Chalara, reaches the forest. The Queen must die to preserve the woods around her, but her memory will live on in the music that her wooden trunk is later shaped to make. The Royal Botanic Gardens, Fletcher Building (Venue 84), Asylon Theatre, Edfringe.
