Cutting Edge Comedy & Theatre

Zena Barrie and Michelle Flower produced hundreds of shows for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival between 2002 2006, but since then, they have brought their organisational skills, hard work, and dedication to Camden to prove that London can do comedy and theatre just as well.

Camden Fringe is now in its ninth year, and produces shows that span the whole borough across twenty-four venues. Between the 28th July - 24th August, you can see over two hundred cutting edge performances that will with have you weeping with joy, laughter, and sadness.

You can see their full schedule on the website, but here's a taster of what you can get on the first night:

Comedy

The Perceptionists

See into the surreal ludicrous world of The Perceptionists, in which characters from Fawlty Towers are sent to work on a cookery show hosted by ghosts.

Pen

Listen to three blokes on stage, telling jokes that were written entirely by people using pens.

Gelt

Meet Youtube star, Mrs Frankowitz, a Granny with so much cheek she can fit two gobstoppers in her mouth. Listen to her thoughts and decisions about the London property bubble, and how it could destroy her dysfunctional family.

Theatre

Maybe I Should Freeze My Eggs

Is it me, or is panic in the air? That old familiar DRILLING noise at the back of your head- creeping in, waiting to eat you for breakfast...'

Lucy Bairstow & Jess Murrain make their debut through dark and neurotic episodes

Metamorphosing

A mixed media production showing how people who have to adapt to physical change. It tells Kafka of post-traumatic experience after a spinal cord injury that left him in a wheelchair.

Glass Mountain

This open air theatre production brings you a whole new fairytale, about Little Hans, the boy who has no fear. He goes in search of his true love, Lind, who is on her own journey to Glass Mountain to fly with the witches.
