BLUE DEVIL'S NEW PRODUCTION
Blue Devil is thrilled to announce our next production – ‘The Tragedy of Dorian Gray’ a new play by Ross Dinwiddy.
Due to the Covid-19 crisis, our shows in the Brighton Fringe have been postponed, we are working on new dates for May 2021 and will share details here just as soon as a new run has been arranged.
Oscar Wilde’s classic, gothic tale moves to the 1960s, where the world has changed and London is swinging. From there, Dorian’s odyssey of fame, vanity, lust and corruption plays out against the changing music and fashions as the decades pass. Humour, intrigue and a touch of bloody murder.
After our sold out 2019 shows, Blue Devil returns to Brighton Fringe with this exciting, brand new play ahead of its London transfer. We expect and hope that we will be able to open in the postponed Brighton Fringe in October 2020 and transfer to London in 2021. We will share news of dates as soon as we are able. Anyone who has already bought tickets will be able to opt to exchange them for a new date. Brighton Fringe will contact all who have purchased tickets in due course.
Stay safe and healthy and see you in the autumn.
More details about the London run and other dates coming soon
BLUE DEVIL'S 2019 PRODUCTIONS
After their sell out, 5-star reviewed, critical success with Franz Kafka – Apparatus at London’s White Bear Theatre throughout January 2019, Blue Devil Productions returned to The Rialto Theatre for Brighton Fringe 2019 with this brand-new production. Now, The Geminus will transfer to The Tristan Bates Theatre in London's West End in August.
The Geminus by Ross Dinwiddy, a reimagining of Joseph Conrad’s, ‘The Secret Sharer’. In this story of a different heart of darkness from Conrad, themes of love, trust, isolation and sexuality collide in an unsettling, yet poignant romance.
Based on the novella, The Secret Sharer by Joseph Conrad, this classic tale is retold as a dark romance and voyage of self-discovery.
The Geminus is a British ship, far from home, sailing through perilous, exotic waters. Young Captain George Hotson is feeling the strain and isolation of his new command. But, Hotson is about to meet his 'second-self' in a fugitive called Leggatt, a handsome and enigmatic stranger with blood on his hands.
Our second play for Brighton Fringe 2019 at the beautiful Rialto Theatre is "I am a Camera", by John van Druten, adapted from The Berlin Stories of Christopher Isherwood & directed by Ross Dinwiddy.
Is Sally Bowles a sophisticated thrill-seeker or vulnerable innocent abroad? She’s certainly a fascinating mass of contradictions.
'I am a Camera' is the play that 'Cabaret' is based on. It is a rich picture of the heartbreaking pathos, wicked comedy and divine decadence of 1931 Berlin. But soon the carefree indulgence must end as the Nazis smash their way to power.
"I am a Camera" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
Apparatus closes in London on a high.
Blue Devil's production of Ross Dinwiddy's compelling new play based on Kafka's 'In the Penal Colony' finished its London run at The White Bear to full houses and critical plaudits sweeping up more 4-star reviews along the way..
Blue Devil will return with Apparatus at a later date.
