Everyone knows being a soldier is hard. Everyone knows that warfare is nasty...but if you've never seen a dismembered body up close then you can't possibly, truly understand.
For those who've witnessed the worst things imaginable, the world can never be the same again; and for those that haven't...the least we can do is listen.
Matt Fox's new monologue is a stark, brutal and savagely honest exploration of what modern warfare really means, and is performed in this year's fringe by Swindon theatre's own enfant terrible Peter Hynds.
Anglichanka (Englishwoman in Russian) is an exhilarating new comedy show about living in the former Soviet Union in the 90s and returning after 18 years as the first UK comic to perform comedy in English and Russian.
Including diary extracts, the consequences of drinking hardcore vodka, studying opera and using outdoor loos in -20 temperatures, we see how Russia has changed and what we need to know about Putin and the country described as ‘a riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma’. ‘True comedy genius...on our list of newer stand-up comedians not to miss in 2016’ GQ Magazine.
