Happenings
  • Brighton Fringe

In these tough times, everything is a struggle. 'Happenings' explores the unfulfilled aspirations and monotonous existences of three 30-somethings, who have the whole world at their feet, but cannot find the way to move forward.Jane wishes that something, anything, would happen to her, to fill the void in her life. Clearly, everyone else is happy. One look at any social media feed will tell you that.Jo doesnt understand how he can view the world so differently. He says hes just happy to get along and be left alone.Maybe neurodiverse character, Fran, really does have all the answers. Or are the same fears that keep her friends together slowly tearing her apart?If your life is made up of things that happen to you, then what is your value if nothing ever happens? How much would you dare risk to push your life agenda, and how easily can it all fall apart?

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.
