Heading to Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August? Make sure you go see our School of Fine & Perfroming Arts‘ alumni and students who are performing as The Lincoln Company at C Venues. Check out the shows that were selected to go:
The Addams Family
The Addams Family request your presence, spiritual or otherwise, for an evening of morbid musical capers. Join Gomez and Morticia Addams as they are forced to face the most unimaginable torture… their future in-laws. That’s right: Wednesday Addams is in love and is switching her crossbow for a bouquet! The resulting shenanigans show the Addams Family as you’ve never seen them before. Can they keep up appearances and have one ‘normal’ night? Come along and reacquaint yourself with the divine darkness and exquisite sorrow.
It’s 1965, and Hal and Dennis have just robbed the bank next to the undertakers. Dear old mum’s conveniently just died, there’s a coffin waiting to be buried, and they need somewhere to stash their loot. Keen to cop a crook before the day is up, Detective Truscott is hot on their trail, and mum’s corpse reappears at the most inopportune moments. Can the two get away with their crime? The macabre collides with the hilarious in Joe Orton’s fast-paced, side-splitting play set at the height of rock’n’roll. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of this outrageous farce.
In this economy, a nostalgic record store sounds like the perfect moneymaker; anything to get you off your Game Boy, out of your parents’ basement and into the real world. A group of well-meaning, infatuated, reckless teenagers take on a business with limited growth potential and next to no customers. Hell, it’s better to burn out than fade away. A laconic cut of Shakespeare’s misguided comedy brings to light the love, loss and dedication of die-hard music fans: who needs money and a girlfriend anyway? Rock’n’roll, baby.
We cook. We clean. We cry. We buy shoes. We wear bras. Sometimes we burn them. We bitch. We moan. We seduce. We give birth. We menstruate. We wash clothes. We pick arguments. We know what we want. We are attention seekers. We are the emotional sex. We are from Venus. Drawn from fact and fiction, history and fantasy, Womenswear explores the point where expectation and reality meet. The Lincoln Company uncovers and confronts stereotypical attitudes towards womanhood. Follow us on a journey to discover the truth behind the stereotype and reveal the real life that women wear.
A tattered map. Outdated, well-loved, and a nightmare to fold. Sarah is busy dying, counting down her heartbeats until her untimely death. She is studying maps of places she never intends to go. John is driven to travel by the need to be someone interesting. He is drawing lines across continents, counting the borders he’ll cross and the cities he’ll see. Both are looking for a future when they meet each other. Through song, string and a bright red anorak, this is a show that asks if we’ll know happiness when we get there.
