At the Junction Cafe
  • Brighton Fringe

Homegrown Buckle Collective hits Brighton Fringe with a new, experimental black comedyAt times moving, at times hilarious, 'At the Junction Cafe' is a battle of the generations that explores relationships, memory and human communication in a highly innovative way. Two people meet in a cafe. Who are they? Are they connected? Will a struggle of wills ensue?This group of local professional artists, led by Charmaine K. Parkin and including Nathalie Codsi and Jack Klaff, got together in November 2016. This, their first production, is the premiere of a play written by Tim Coakley. Charmaine K. Parkin, the Director, said: The team and I are really excited about the themes and theatricality that can be brought out in this piece. It breaks normal theatre conventions, which is at times quite scary. The contrast between this and the heartfelt subject matter is fascinating to watch. They plan to tour the play after Brighton Fringe.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
