Play: The Marriage of Kim K – Monday 3 – Monday 17 July

Kim Kardashian’s love life has been set to music by classical composer Mozart to create a satirical musical called The Marriage of Kim K – and its coming to to the sixth Greater Manchester Fringe 3-4, 10-11, 15-17 July 2017.

In 2011, Kim Kardashian televised her fairytale wedding to NBA basketball star Kris Humphries… 72 days later she filed for divorce. In this brisk, clever and ambitious take on Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, this spectacular Kardashian failure is just one of three iconic marriages to comically disintegrate on stage.

Monday 10 July & Tuesday 11 July – 9:30pm
Saturday 15 July & Sunday 16 July – 4pm
Monday 17 July – 7pm

Tickets: £10 (£8)

 

Play: The Loves of Others – Tuesday 18 – Saturday 22 July

Part of the Greater Manchester Fringe, The Loves of Others is written by playwright and performance Poet Alex Keelan and directed by Kayleigh Hawkins. The play is a dark comedy about romance, pretence and love, all told through the lives of three thirty-something couples. Leanne hosts a dinner party and is keen to prove she has the perfect relationship with Max. Can a game of Mr and Mrs really prove who is the most in love or will it reveal the cracks in their relationships they all try to hide? The Loves of Others has been described as a modern, northern Abigail’s Party.

Tuesday 18 – Thursday 20 July at 7L30pm, £9/£7

Friday 21 & Saturday 22 July at 9:30pm, £9/£7

Boris the Musical – 27, 28, 29 July – 8pm

Suitable for Ages 15+

Part of the Greater Manchester Fringe

One year on from the referendum, Blowfish Theatre presents the rise, fall and unfortunate rise again of Britain’s most famous politiclown. Hear the (soon to be) smash hits, “I’m talking about Brexit”, “Posh Lads” and “BeLeave!” Boo Michael Gove as he welcomes you to the Church of Brexit. Witness the life and time of Boris, in song!

A blend of biography, Brexit farce, and musical satire, “Boris” is the 5* show with something for everyone. Mixing pop with punk, tango and gospel, this is the always hilarious, often enraging tale of BoJo and his hand in Brexit.

Now newly updated to include the 2017 General Election. Join us on a musical journey from Eton, through Brexit, to Election 17!

So come along and laugh your socks off at the state of the world for an hour…before returning to your grim, unavoidable reality.

“A very funny show… something of a blessed relief as the UK struggles with the aftermath of Boris’ Brexit Shenanigans” Manchester Theatre Awards
