Women Owned Local Businesses Founded during the Pandemic, One Year On

COMA – FRINGE REVIEW 2021

The best word to describe the ‘COMA’ immersive experience at Fringe is Unsettling.  Encouraged into a shipping container full of claustrophobia inducing bunk beds, the world outside seems to slip away. As we lay on our sterile plastic mattresses the container begins to dim until it is illuminated by only bright red lights slowly fading as a voice guides you into a collective dream through DARKFIELD‘s signature 360-degree audio. ...

Live-streaming and moving their entire lives into their bedrooms, the kids tackle gun laws, the future, government, love, each other and themselves.” A Boy Wanted To looked promising. An original musical with script, music, and lyrics written by...

Prismatic – FRINGE 2021 REVIEW

Captivated from the first second, Prismatic had us all transported into a dreamscape karaoke bar where each performer had a story to tell. Giving too much away about this show would be a disservice; the beauty comes within the unpredictability and raw emotion. Three monologues, three excellent portrayals of characters that I feel as though...
