At the PARK Theatre

SIT-Up, stand up! Two outstanding 2018 Edinburgh Fringe shows in one day for £20

For the first time in our five years at Park Theatre, we are super excited to host two of the hottest plays from the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe.

SIT-Up Sunday on 28 October provides a London platform for two plays commended in their debut year at the Fringe: And Before I Forget I Love You, I Love You by Pip Utton and the 2018 SIT-Up Award-winner Dangerous Giant Animals by Christina Murdock.

Our Artistic Director Jez Bond sat on the panel for the SIT-Up Awards this year and having been ‘moved to laughter and tears’ was compelled and delighted to give ‘an opportunity for a London audience to see these powerful, punchy and vital plays’.

Standing for Social Impact Theatre, the SIT-Up Awards were recently launched at the Edinburgh Fringe to reward and support theatre to achieve greater social impact.

Four Victorian women are drawn into the dark underground world of female boxing. Controlled by men and constrained by corsets, each finds an unexpected freedom in the boxing ring.
