Watch Brighton Fringe Digital Events From The Comfort Of Your Home

If you can't make it down to Brighton this month for Brighton Fringe, fear not. With over 30 digital events featured in this year's programme, get ready for a #CuriouslyFringe experience from the comfort of your own home - or wherever you happen to be in the world!

Need something to keep the kids entertained? Brighton Fringe's digital programme offers something for the little one's with Mr Dilly's Alice in Wonderland, where nothing is as it seems. 

Gather the family and join Mr Dilly and MacMillan Children's Books on a joyous journey to the magical world of Wonderland. 

Meet your favourite unforgettable characters as Mr Dilly brings to life the grinning Cheshire Cat, the anxious White Rabbit, the noble White Knight; and join an endless tea party with the Mad Hatter himself. 
The Tragedy of Dorian Gray, the OffFest award-winning hit play of Brighton Fringe 2021, returns with a stunning, black and white digital version ready to stream from 6 May. 

In a studio in Chelsea, a young man is about to have his portrait painted. From there, Dorian's story of fame, vanity, lust and corruption plays out against the changing music and fashions as the decades pass - a twisted odyssey of heartbreak, betrayal and a touch of bloody murder. 
Alternatively, catch Rough Night from New Zealand based Tempest Theatre Co, as Declan, Liv and Jamie retrace their steps and look for missing friend Sarah after a heavy night of drinking at an end of summer house party. 

In this part-theatre, part-installation, explore the online lives of these people and discover exactly what happened that night. Rough Night streams throughout the festival, from 6 May to 5 June.
Watch Becky Fury: C*nt! live alongside an in-person audience from Laughing Horse @ The Quadrant on Tuesday 10 May. 

Profanity and Powerpoint collide in this show, partly an irreverent, illustrated history of the c-word and partly just an excuse to indulge in the simple joy of using it. 

Becky Fury is a comic artist and stand-up comedian who has won awards at a number of art festivals in the UK for her innovative and creative approach to making comic theatre. 
Brighton Fringe is delighted to continue its online streaming experience with more than 30 events to enjoy from anywhere. Get ready for a #CuriouslyFringe experience, at home!
