Upstairs at the Southern Cross, the latest venue on London’s Fringe opened its doors for the first time on June 28th, for a 6 week celebration of the very best of fringe theatre.  Twenty-eight acts, many performing at both the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, make up a diverse and exciting programme including 3 new dramas.

Friday 12 July
7:30 - Can You Hear Seagulls? (Drama)
At the centre of this 55minute two hander is RD Laing’s claim that there are only two rules in families.  The first rule is that families don’t talk to each other, and the second rule is that they don’t talk about  the first rule. Jimmy and Sal are waiting for a representative from Beautiful Darkness to assist in their  deaths. As they wait it emerges that although devoted to each other the closeness of their  relationship may have stifled honest communication. An incident causes one to review the decision  to die. Will the pact go ahead?

Friday 19 July
7:30 - The Silent Stream (Drama)
Written and Performed by Jonathan Brown, Winner: Best New Play, 2012 Brighton Fringe (for “The  Last Lunch”). Best Male Performer (nom) Brighton Fringe 2007 and Shortlisted Best New Play,   Brighton Fringe 2013. (for “The Silent Stream”)
George is a king in waiting. Kept to the wings and given no role by his pious, over-controlling and  distant father he turns to a life of hedonism. Cavorting, women, building, gambling, driving, drink and  laudanum all become close to his heart, As he moves to his next project, his Brighton Pavilion, he is  forced to change the course of a hidden river that runs through the centre of the town. Unbeknownst  to him, the ancient river has its allies deep in the underworld.

Saturday 27 July
9:00 - Capacity House
Glaswegian alternative drag queen Miss Diagnosis spends her days in preparation for the big show,  endlessly going through a dress rehearsal in the confines of her studio flat. Do strangers visit in the  night, while she sleeps, as she says? Unable to leave the confines of her tiny flat, she fantasies  about a sparkling, brilliant life that they have stolen from her. Family, friends and siblings are all  suspects…
