All That Is Wrong, the latest Drum Theatre Plymouth co-production with Belgian company Ontroerend Goed, is one of the first recipients of this year’s Fringe First Awards, it has just been announced.
The awards celebrate high-quality new drama at the Edinburgh Festival and were established in 1973. Winners are selected by a team of critics from The Scotsman and are chosen from original drama pieces which have their UK premiere in Edinburgh (although up to 6 preview performances at another venue are permitted).
Since opening, Dominic Cavendish of The Telegraph said, “The Traverse has chalked up an early Fringe talking-point” while totaltheatrereview.com said, “It is a powerful body of work, capturing the changes through teenage years with extraordinary precision and insight.” Neil Cooper of The Herald Scotland said the show is a “meditation of the hard facts of life, not so much performed…as lived in real time” and Lyn Gardner of the Guardian said, “Like much of the work by the provocative Belgian company Ontroerend Goed, it’s an artful confection.”

All That Is Wrong runs at the Traverse until Sunday 12 August and will return to the Drum from Tuesday 6 until Saturday 17 November. For more information or to book tickets for the Plymouth performances, click here.
