Brighton Fringe: What’s on this week

The Brighton Fringe has entered its final week of core events, here are some choice picks from the city-wide celebration of all things art.

Jekyll and Hyde: A one-woman show

26-29 October

Heather-Rose Andrews will be performing her much-celebrated one-woman take on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella, Jekyll and Hyde for four nights this week (26-29 October, 20:30-21:30).

The event will take place Street Werks 2, 15-17 Middle Street.

“You must suffer me to go my own dark way…” Stevenson’s classic science-horror is reborn, with award-winning performer Heather-Rose Andrews in the titular role. Class, terror, and hypocrisy in Victorian London, as the search for self collides with the lure of the sensuous, taking its toll on all around Jekyll and Hyde.

“The performance of Heather-Rose Andrews in this one-woman show is what makes the production stand out.” ( for ‘Metamorphosis’)

Nexus 2020

26 October – 31 November

The neXus 2020 arts exchange is a dynamic collaboration between urbanflo creative and artist Vian Roos in association with Vrystaat Arts Festival (South Africa), Brighton Fringe (UK), Lagos Fringe (Nigeria) and The Brighton Storeroom Gallery (Barbados).
