Fringe previews

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: Hughman

Hughman could be the happiest place in the world right now. With unbridled joy, Hugh Sheridan raises the bar, lifts spirits and serves up unadulterated fun. ★★★★

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: Bred

Be open to being challenged, be open to having the conversation. Bred creates a safe space between audience and performers where ideas and emotions are unpacked and connections are made. ★★★ ½

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: Egg

To freeze or not to freeze: is that the question? It’s hard to know how Erin Fowler ultimately feels about motherhood in this hybrid physical performance. ★★★

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: DIЯT

A young Australian man visiting Moscow hooks up with a Russian tourist guide but it emerges that each has his own secrets and agenda, as playwright Angus Cameron’s wryly engaging thriller takes us through a labyrinth of misrepresentation. ★★★★  ½

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: That Boy

After infant Tom pushed a little girl because he didn’t want to be hugged, “he became That Boy”, his mother recalls, “and I became That Mother.” Martha Lott powerfully describes the lonely challenges of parenting a turbulent child when everyone else has given up. ★★★★

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: The Twins

Two friends are cast in a school production of The Comedy of Errors. One is Greg Fleet, the other Ian Darling. One took the high road, the other the low. Forty years later they ponder where life has taken them ­– and which road was which. ★★★★
