Type ‘Reading Theatre’ into google and cinema listings will be the first hit. Yet this week Reading is becoming the hub of Fringe UK with SITELINES- Theatre in Unusual Spaces- Festival.
The festival is sprawling across the city into unexpected places, with everyone from schools to business’ giving up rooms for theatre magic to take place. The ambitious performances aim to show that no subject is too insignificant, nor place too ordinary to be an appropriate source for Theatre.
The festival kicks off tomorrow with Shady Jane’s performance of ‘Sailing On’, which gained good reviews this Summer in Edinburgh and procured for Shady Jane the Total Theatre Award for an Emerging Company. This promises to be a fantastic start to the week-and-a-half long festival.
