Brighton Blonde Productions
Brighton Blonde Productions was formed Peter Kenny and actor/director Beth Symons, to bring new flavours of comedy to the stage.
Our first collaboration was A Glass of Nothing first performed during the Brighton Fringe Festival May 2016. The debut performances featured Kitty Underhill, and Dylan Corbett-Bader, and picked up some excellent reviews.
We repeated the show in December at Brighton’s Marlborough Theatre. We teamed this with We Three Kings a new gender-bending 21st century nativity, which ran in the Marlborough Theatre Brighton in December 2016 and also featured James Kuszewski.
In August 2017 Brighton Blonde Productions made the long trek north to perform A Glass of Nothing for its third run at Surgeons’ Hall Edinburgh, adding Matt Colborne to our cast.
“Writer Peter Kenny’s and actor-director Beth Symons’s A Glass of Nothing knows exactly what it’s doing – and who it’s doing it for. The very first lines pop like a Formula 1 celebration and we are delightfully bathed in a stream of deliciously fizzing jokes and observations. Featherweight bliss, this is a real Babysham of a show.” Charley Ville in Broadway Baby
“…dark humour playfully dances on the thin line between imagination and reality. Drowning in beautifully written monologues – it charms, pouts and glitters.” Isabelle Emma Stokes in Arts Award Voice.
