Ensonglopedia of the Human
  • Brighton Fringe

What does it mean to be human? Local science-singer-songwriter John Hinton has not one answer, but twenty-six, one for each letter of the alphabet, and hes turned them all into comedy song. In an era when weve had a lot of time to ponder who we are, where we come from, and where were headed, John presents a lighthearted musical look at the anatomy, evolution, habits and quirks of that strange species, the Homo sapiens. Peer reviewed by scientists, doctors and thinkers. Written for humans. World premiere.Johns previous musical science comedies have won awards at Edinburgh, Adelaide and Brighton Fringes, and at Londons Offies.John Hinton is an absolute joy... This guy could get anyone interested in science (Adelaide Theatre Guide).After beguiling me with yet another diverse, engaging show, Im starting to wonder if John Hinton can possibly really exist (Fringe Guru).

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.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
