This year’s Buxton Fringe features the return of some of the festival’s most popular and acclaimed young performers.
REC Youth Theatre tackles Dennis Potter’s Blue Remembered Hills set in the shadows of the Second World War, while Shadow Syndicate offer Lapse, an energetic piece on the unseen consequences of human choice.
Buxton Community School features performances from both Spotlight Theatre with Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, and Dilate Theatre with the surreal Asylum by Keith Aisner.
Fringe newcomers PB Theatricals Youth Theatre, featuring a local cast led by professionals, offers its take on Gilbert and Sullivan’s Trial by Jury.
For classic productions given a fresh young twist, try JM Youth Productions’ As You Like It or CHS Youth Theatre Company’s Crossroads, retelling the Faust myth with a hint of comedy.
Or for something altogether stranger, JM Youth Productions are also putting on Ionesco’s farcical The Chairs in which a very old, island-bound couple pass the time with mind games and chair manoeuvres.
