Pulse Fringe Festival takes theatre to houses and caravans
Homes, offices and caravans will join the more traditional venues to host shows at the Pulse Fringe Festival.
The series of 52 performances will take place in Ipswich from 25 May to 9 June.
Avon Calling (25-27 May) is among the more unusual shows. It will be performed in front of 10 people at the home of one of the audience members.
Pulse director Emma Bettridge said: "Audiences want to take risks, want to try new things and are keen to support the development of new talent."
Many of the shows will take place at the New Wolsey Theatre and the Wolsey Studio.
Hugh Hughes will return to the festival with a new piece, Stories From An Invisible Town, and Dan Canham will present a work-in-progress performance of Ours Was The Fen Country, inspired by the East Anglian landscape.Caravan convoy
Pulse prides itself on supporting new talent and this year has commissioned two pieces.
One is a new play by Morgan Lloyd-Malcolm (1 June), who won a Fringe First Award at Edinburgh last year for You Once Said Yes.
The other is called The Campsite (1-3 June) and will see campervans and caravans used as venues for gigs, puppet shows, poetry, film and art installations.
The convoy will be parked at St George's Street and visitors will be encouraged to go from vehicle to vehicle and then share a drink around a campfire.
Laura Mugridge, who helped come up with the idea, said: "Pulse is going to be fantastic as we have a great place to park up for the first time, a lovely leafy area in the centre of Ipswich."
Some of the performances are free, but for all other shows tickets cost either £5 or £8.
