Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me (Made In China)

Tonight I'm Gonna

Made In China return to this year’s Fringe with their latest show, where relationships are hard and power is everything. It’s an uncomfortable look at power dynamics and who really has control –the writer or the performer? Real life couple Jess and Tim put their relationship on stage. Well, they put Jess on stage, in a box. Tim’s there too, but only in the background. He’s the writer though. “Sort of”, says Jess. Our unreliable narrators digress and disagree at every opportunity, even roping the audience into their games and playing to aspects of the human condition we’d rather not think about. Brilliant theatre, uncertain and uncomfortably familiar.

Forest Fringe, until 28 Aug.
