The Fringe Files


The Fringe Files present Blackhaven in 2020

For 2020, The Fringe Files will present horror, Blackhaven, a new one act stage play, written and directed by Michael Starr.

The Trailer

The video trailer for this play is coming soon...

The Plot

It's just another night for CYNTHIA and producer WILL on their controversial night-time radio talk show. All seems well before technical failures kick in and residents of Blackhaven start reporting strange events. The very survival of this small rural community will soon be hanging in the balance.

The Notes

For this production, The Fringe Files welcome back Michael Starr (writer / director), Seb Webber (sound tech), Chris Harris-Beechey (performer), Rhian Brimble (stage manager) and Ian Tapner (set design). New members Kirsty Elizabeth Johnstone (performer), Hannah Turner (graphic design), Joe Chadney (light tech) and Daniel Wright (performer) join us for the first time.

As part of our tenth year anniversary, Blackhaven will also feature special cameo appearances by TFF alumni legends Stuart Lyddon, Theresa Roche, Adam Holland, Emma Victoria Loveday, Charlotte Elizzabeth Langley and others.

The Timetable

Rehearsals will run between January 2020 and March 2020 at the Church of St Thomas the Martyr, Bristol. To date, we have confirmed performances at the Somerset County Drama Festival (March 21, 2020), the Maidenhead Drama Festival (March 2020) and Bristol (April 4, 2020)
