BLUE DEVIL'S NEW 2021 PRODUCTION
Blue Devil is thrilled to announce our next production, ‘The Tragedy of Dorian Gray’, a new play by Ross Dinwiddy.
It’s 1965, the world has changed and London is swinging...
In a studio in Chelsea, a young man is about to have his portrait painted. From there, Dorian’s story of fame, vanity, lust and corruption takes us on a twisted odyssey through heartbreak, betrayal and a touch of bloody murder.
After our sold out 2019 shows, Blue Devil will return to Brighton Fringe this May and June with this exciting, brand new play ahead of its London transfer.
As part of Brighton Fringe 2021, we will stage 6 performances at the beautiful Rialto Theatre. 3 shows over the opening Bank Holiday weekend of the festival (29th to 31stMay) to restricted audiences.
Then 3 more shows once restrictions have lifted (22nd to 24th June).
More details about the London run and other dates coming soon
BLUE DEVIL'S PAST PRODUCTIONS
Here are extracts from our scrapbook of past performances. We have had the privilege to work with some incredible actors over the years and played in some beautiful spaces.
Deadly serious comedy.
A young man says he's just looking for a place to stay, but he's got sex, violence and revenge on his mind. When Mike and Joyce open their door to Wilson, they're letting in so much more than a handsome stranger.
Joe Orton's Ruffian on the Stair was our first production back in 2017 at Brighton's Lantern Theatre. With a great cast and crew, we were nominated as Best Newcomers at the Brighton Fringe Award and the reviews were great.
With Kiki Kendrick as Joyce, Elliott Rogers as Wilson and Pádraig Lynch as Mike.
You are cordially invited to a most unusual, mechanically achieved execution.
2018 saw us back with Ross Dinwiddy's Franz Kafka - Apparatus, a reworking of Kafka's short story, In the Penal Colony. We received fantastic reviews for our previews at Brighton's Rialto Theatre plus a nomination for Best New Play as the Brighton Fringe Awards where it won the Best Design for Print Award. Apparatus transferred to London's White Bear Theatre in January 2019.
