OPEN: 23-27 Jan

We've seen this in preview and it's absolutely stunning. Chris and Tim explain and explore their open marriage in beautiful, tender detail. Go.

17: 23-27 Jan

WildCard are one of our favourite companies, and they've got a cracking cast for 17, which explores being a teenager in 2019.

COUNTING SHEEP: 23 Jan-17 Mar

We saw and loved this in 2016; a stunning immersive show putting you in the heart of the 2014 Kiev Uprising. Well worth throwing yourself in.

A SUPER HAPPY STORY (ABOUT FEELING SUPER SAD): 30 Jan-03 Feb

This cabaret musical about depression, from Olivier-winner Jon Brittain and Frisky & Mannish's Matthew Floyd Jones is meant to be just great.

THE NOBLE NINE: 30 Jan-03 Feb

Matt Parvin's a Pint-Sized alum, and this Famous Five pastiche looks as inventive and precise as the everything he does.

PECS: KING FOR A NIGHT: 02 Feb

Knockout drag kings Pecs with their latest - go for it.

 

MANCOIN: 06-10 Feb

We're big fans of Felix Legge's work, and this expose of white male wokeness feels like it could be just the right kind of uncomfortable.

KINGS OF IDLE LAND: 06-10 Feb

We longlisted an extract from Conor Hunt's play this year, and we can't wait to see the whole thing.

SH!T THEATRE DRINK RUM WITH EXPATS: 10 Feb

Sh!t Theatre are some of the best theatre-makers in the country. Go go go.

COLLAPSIBLE: 13-17 Feb

Margaret Perry's one of our favourite writers, and Collapsible explores heartbreak and identity in a world that doesn't have time for you to fall apart.

GIRLS: 13-17 Feb & BOYS: 16-17 Feb

We've heard wonderful things about The Pappyshow's two shows exploring the male and female experiences. Well worth a look.

WARPED: 20-24 Feb

If the preview we saw last year was anything to go by, this piece about the Kray twins and the way we mythologise them is going to be a stunner.

WORK BITCH: 27 Feb-03 Mar

Jessica Sian's brilliant - Klippies and Kiki's Delivery Service have both stayed with us years after we saw them. This new play about pulling pints, refilling coffee cups and sweeping floors is for generation side-hustle, and we can't wait.

ALCATRAZ: 27 Feb-03 Mar

We really like Nathan Lucky Wood and Emily Collins - they're launching Alcatraz into the world in February and it'll be well worth a look.

BOBBY AND AMY: 06-10 Mar

This dark comedy by Fringe First winner Emily Jenkins looks at heartache and friendship in the midst of the Mad Cow Disease outbreak of the 90s. 

 

HEART: 08-09 Mar

Jade Anouka's a stunning performer, and her work-in-progress piece about being 'the other' looks like it could be the start of something special.

LUCY LIGHT: 13-17 Mar 

Sarah Milton and her writing have a really special place in our heart; Lucy Light is tender, beautiful and bloody lovely.

ANNA X: 13-17 March

We've all heard brilliant things from this by the writer of last year's Brilliant Jerks - what does it take to become somebody from nobody?

FINDING FASSBENDER: 15-16 Mar

Lydia Larson and Blythe Stewart last worked together on Isley Lynn's Skin A Cat, one of our very favourite shows. They're back together for this one-woman hit from this year's Fringe - we'll see you there.
