Theatre Peckham is set to host the Peckham Fringe for its third consecutive year, with two new musicals on the bill.

Running from 1 May – 8 June 2024, this year Peckham Fringe breaks new ground by extending its reach beyond the confines of Theatre Peckham, venturing into the heart of the local community and utilising surrounding spaces.

With over 20 outstanding artists and creatives on the lineup, the festival will showcase a diverse array of performances, including emerging writers, new musicals, clowning, and spoken word.

The programme will include Rain in the serenade, a captivating musical of cultural clashes and romanticism in Peckham.

Meanwhile, showcasing a heartwarming odyssey through dreams, Miracle the Musical uses a sensational score to delve into self discovery, and the power of healing on a magical path of empowerment.

Among the other highlights is the opening act by Dominique Davis, known as ‘Variety D’, who brings her new work, Variety D: Misunderstood in the Hood, to the stage. Jason Patterson, another notable performer, will present an hour of stand-up comedy, sharing his experiences in PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE.

Peckham Fringe’s programme has been meticulously co-coordinated by Theatre Peckham’s Ambassadors, a group comprising local artists, creatives, and members of the Peckham community. This collaboration ensures that the festival remains deeply rooted in the community, highlighting voices and stories that are often underrepresented in the arts.

The lineup boasts a significant number of women writers, global majority voices, and neurodiverse stories, alongside an exciting scratch night at the Golden Goose pub.

Peckham Fringe’s Projects Producer/Programmer Vikesh Godhwani commented: “Peckham Fringe continues to break barriers for underrepresented artists in a really difficult time for making theatre.

“The variety of our programme is representative of our rich cultural landscape, with work that is both formally inventive and tackles subject matter that is incredibly timely.”
