The Copenhagen Theatre Circle is staging its second Fringe Festival after last year’s success, bringing you music, drama and excitement in ten one-act plays performed over three nights.
Among this year’s highlights are Before Breakfast (May 26), the story of a worn-out 30-year-old woman who loses the plot after years of unhappy marriage; a teenager’s dreamy journey during the Great Depression in New York (Brighton Beach Memoirs, May 26); the story of a man praying for a Waiter To The Rescue (May 27) when he forgets it’s his wedding anniversary at a fancy restaurant; and the Lewis Carroll-inspired #Wonderland (May 28) in which Alice and the Cat swap sanity with the Mad Hatter.
Also on the line-up are Revenant, Brian’s Self Belief (May 26), The Sandalwood Box, A Rose Would Still Smell Sweet (both May 27), and The Bond (May 28).
The festival offers a great platform for up-and-coming directors, playwrights and actors to showcase their work and talents. Director Maria Lundbye presented Last Tango in Little Grimley at last year’s festival and ended up directing the CTC’s autumn production, Funeral Games.
All the plays are in English and a night’s ticket gives you access to all the plays on that day.
