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

BLINKblink_lampbanner_NEW

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.

NOTES:

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

‘This is a true story…our love story’ Jonah tells us but the course of true love never did run smooth and anyway, is your ‘happy ending’ mine too?

Unconventional, quirky and voyeuristic, this funny, delicate 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.

Sophie, vulnerable and raw from the loss of her father to pancreatic cancer, craves visibility whilst Jonah, sheltered and fresh from a religious commune, having lost his mother to the same disease, wants to find out what ‘life on the outside’ is really about. They find each other in Leytonstone. Their ensuing relationship is dysfunctional, darkly funny and unexpected – in more ways that one!

Peppered Wit Productions return to the Camden Fringe Festival. Impressing audiences with their 2013 production of ‘The Collector’ by Mark Healy at Upstairs at the Gatehouse theatre, this slick, tight-knit company received a deserved four-star review from the popular Everything-Theatre, describing their intense, psychological thriller as ‘chilling and thought-provoking….my favourite piece so far at this year’s Camden Fringe’.

With a creative and fluid approach to set, sound and lighting, the Peppered Wit team of Tara Lacey, Rob Hall, Jem Turner and Nick Wilson work collaboratively on all aspects of the staging. Creating a multi-functional set has been a challenge but one which the team has relished as they look forward to the show.banner2

Having worked together on many productions for other companies – including ‘Brassed Off’ for Banbury Cross Players in collaboration with Hook Norton Brass Band (where the quartet first met!), Peppered Wit have previously taken fringe theatre to Edinburgh (2012) and Camden (2013). Their last creative foray together was a series of Christmas Dickensian Dinner Shows with seventeen well-loved characters played by four and a half actors, Victorian underscoring and spooky sound-effects a-plenty!
