Following a successful 2014 tour funded by Arts Council England and Farnham Maltings, Theatre Exchange make their first visit to Brighton Fringe with Our June’s Wedding.
Production assistant India Grant explains: “Our June’s wedding is a play that isn’t quite a play, a wedding that isn’t really a wedding, but with all the anticipation, wobbles and warmth of both. So what better choice of venue than St Andrew’s, Hove – a church that isn’t quite a church? The play moves its audience through the action to a second venue, the lovely Dukebox Theatre, for a very special party with cake for everyone!
“We meet Richard. He’s nervous. There is still no sign of his best man. Hilary is panicked. It’s her son’s wedding day and the whole thing is looking a little too homemade for her liking. Peter is overjoyed. By some miracle he has made it to his daughter’s wedding day. And June – well, where is June?”
India added: “Theatre Exchange are a small professional theatre company based in Surrey. Their unique calling card is the interactive participative style in which the majority of their work is framed. Audiences are immersed into the very heart of live performance, sometimes acting, walking or dancing with the actors, contributing questions or making decisions for the characters.”
The play is at The Dukebox at St Andrews on May 9-10 and May 16-17 at 12.30pm. Tickets on www.brightonfringe.org or 01273 917272.
