After a run of six fabulous and festive, popular performances of ‘IMMACULATE’ by Oliver Lansley, throughout Oxfordshire and Northants, Peppered Wit are pleased to be able to give a ‘little something’ back to the Banburyshire community, in which they are based.

The fringe theatre company provided complimentary mulled wine and mince pies at both their Banbury and Croughton productions and combined with generosity from those audiences and the actors themselves, donated £125.40 to the Banbury Young Homelessness Project, as a result.posterVERSION3

Justin and Rachel from BYHP (pictured above with Tara Lacey), accepted the Christmas donation on behalf of the Project, at their offices in Banbury on January 12th.CAST on set

Peppered Wit says a huge ‘Thank you!’ to all their audiences and looks forward to seeing you later in 2018!

Brighton Fringe Review – Blink

This is the most affecting bittersweet piece of theatre seen at the Fringe for a while and a masterly play. That Hall and Lacey invest it with such pathos humour and delicacy whilst working to pinpoint direction is equally winning, equally devastating and makes you dream sequels. So tightly scored is the piece with its briefest of musical interludes, you’d think it moves like a tiny musical or chamber opera. It’s a must-see.

Blink – Brighton Fringe


by Phil Porter

“ Raw, real and utterly brilliant”

Unconventional, quirky and voyeuristic, this funny delicate often ’heart-rending’ love story cleverly weaves themes of loneliness, bereavement and consensual stalking (!) into the intimate and engaging story of Jonah, Sophie and a fox called Scruffilitis.

Peppered Wit Productions bring their five star show, written by award winning playwright Phil Porter to Brighton, having moved audiences during the 2016 Camden Fringe with ‘superb performances from both Lacey and Hall’ of the sheltered Jonah and the vulnerable Sophie.

This slick, tight-knit company use vibrant multimedia to add an extra dimension to their ‘beautiful, poignant and humorous’ storytelling.

Peppered Wit have toured fringe theatre throughout the UK including Edinburgh Fringe (2012) and Camden Fringe (2013/16) impressing audiences with their ‘chilling and thought-provoking’ interpretation of Mark Healy’s ‘The Collector’, described as ‘excellent and effortlessly believable’.

This Oxfordshire quintet, a merry band of actors and musicians first met performing the stage version of ‘Brassed Off’ in their local theatre.


  • BLINK will be at Sweet Waterfront 1 (Venue *?*) from 29th May – 4th June at 5.30pm (80 mins) with tickets priced at £9.50.
