Southend Fringe Festival is launching its first ever Southend Fringe Festival Award in 2019. Our winners are Concept Theatre, with their brand new show ‘Naked People Waking Up’
The Southend Fringe Award Winners will have producing guidance from the Directors of Southend Fringe Festival to materialise their project into something brilliant. The first performance slot on 13th July at 7.00pm is a celebration of the winners work.
Following the award winners we have the brilliant Shit-faced Shakespeare at 8.15pm.
Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Outrageously raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 350,000 eager theatre goers across the UK, US, and Australia. Having successfully completed multiple sell-out runs of the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, the Magnificent Bastards made their way stateside in 2015 to Boston and have been enjoying a smashingly successful runs on both sides of the pond since.
Shit-Faced Shakespeare® seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist – reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.
What could possibly go right?!
