The Fringe Files

The Not-So-Great Fallout of 1983 (2017)

For 2017, The Fringe Files will present the world premiere of dark surreal comedy play, The Not-So-Great Fallout of 1983, written by Michael Starr and directed collectively.

The Plot

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.

The Notes

For this production, The Fringe Files welcome back Will Leighton (lighting tech), Emma Harris (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 returns whilst Seb Webber (sound tech) joins us for the first time. Our Bristol show will be supported by new play So Far So Good, written by Jon Attwood & Charlotte Wright.

The Timetable

Rehearsals will run from August 2017 through to October 2017 at The St Werburghs Centre (Bristol). Our first showcase will be in Bristol, at The Watershed (October 15, 2017). There will be a 2pm and a 5pm show time and both performance slots will be supported by new play So Far So Good, written by Jon Atwood & Charlotte Wright. Beyond Bristol, we’ll be presenting The Not so Great Fallout of 1983 at two national festivals, these are the Woking Drama Festival (October 20, 2017) and the Spelthorne & Runnymede Drama Festival (October 28, 2017).
