For 2017, The Fringe Files presented the world premiere of dark surreal comedy play, The Not so Great Fallout of 1983, written by Michael Starr and directed collaboratively.
Here's the official video trailer:
One day, in 1983, possibly around July time, late of an evening, around seven, a minor dispute over a night light escalates into an epic, not quite so epic, fallout between neighbours in a not so far away quaint English village. The tale is dark and surreal. The events did not happen. They are merely based on other events of similar ilk.
For this production, The Fringe Files welcomed back Will Leighton (lighting tech), Emma Victoria Loveday (performer), Chris Harris-Beechey (performer), Charlotte Elizzabeth Langley (performer), Michael Starr (performer / writer / producer) & Rhian Brimble (tech support). Original and long time contributor Jeff Haas (graphic illustrator) also returned whilst Seb Webber (sound tech) joined us for the first time. Our Bristol show was supported by new play So Far So Good, written by Jon Attwood & Charlotte Wright.
Rehearsals ran from August 2017 through to October 2017 at the St Werburghs Centre (Bristol). Our first showcase was in Bristol, at The Watershed on October 15, 2017. There was a 2pm and a 5pm show time and both performance slots were supported by new play So Far So Good, written by Jon Attwood & Charlotte Wright. We also presented The Not so Great Fallout of 1983 at two national festivals, the Woking Drama Festival on October 20, 2017 and the Spelthorne & Runnymede Drama Festival on October 28, 2017.
