WHATS ON: Shiny New Festival | Lantern Theatre | 27 July – 2 August 2015


Lantern Theatre Liverpool is playing host to its annual pre Edinburgh theatre event Shiny New Festival for the fourth year this July. From Monday 27th July until Sunday 2nd August 2015, audiences will be treated to 3 shows per night from the North West’s top fringe talents. TICKETS

The festival was founded in 2012 by Shiny New Director Pete Mitchelson in association with the Lantern and has gone from strength to strength over the past four years. With an eclectic mix of performances from new writing to Bouffon clowning, there is something for everyone to enjoy at Shiny New Festival.

This year’s line-up includes an exciting new collaboration with Manchester’s 24:7 Theatre Festival. Four plays from the Manchester festival will be transferring to the Lantern in the first collaboration of its kind in the North West. Annika Edge of 24:7 Theatre Festival says, “This exciting collaboration connects two unique festivals and demonstrates there are further opportunities for new plays in the North West.”

Acts that audiences can expect to see throughout the festival include Teatro Pomodoro, Man with a Porpoise and Farucchio Peru is Extraordinaire who recently enjoyed success in Liverpool’s Physical Fest. There will also be a whole host of new writing for audiences with plays focusing on the marriage of Frank Sinatra and Ava Garner (One for my Baby) societies increasing use of social media (Follow/Unfollow) and a comic play based on what is seen by cleaners in an office (Cleaners).
