PREVIEW: Brighton Fringe: A little respect

Besi Besemar May 3, 2015

Hungry Wolf Visionary Youth Theatre has enjoyed great success since it’s launch in 2013 and has since been propelled to the forefront of cutting edge theatre made and performed by young people.

A little respect

Hungry Wolf made their debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with Growing Pains, receiving 5* reviews, national press interest, a schools tour and a slot on ITV, followed by last year’s critically acclaimed success The Electra Project, described as “a love letter to drama teachers everywhere”.

This year, Hungry Wolf are back with a new black comedy A Little Respect. Irreverent and dark, A Little Respect is a sexy little thriller filled with intrigue, waspish one liners and homo-eroticism.

What first appears to be a traditional piece of situation comedy quickly becomes something sharper and more sophisticated, as the stereotypes we are presented with in the opening scenes are flip reversed.

With an intimate cast of six, A Little Respect is a stark story of stolen kisses, adolescent cruelty and cyber revenge.

When describing the style of the piece, writer Dave Jackson said: “think ‘Skins’ meets ‘Gone Girl’. With a bit of ‘Glee’ thrown in!”

The production will preview at award-winning fringe venue The Marlborough Theatre, Brighton on May 4, 9 and 10, 2015 as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival prior to a week-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.

Hungry Wolf performs the piece, after an extensive search across East and West Sussex to find the area’s most talented young actors.

The piece has been written and directed by NYT director, Radio 4 Young Comedy Writer of the Year and ITV writer Dave Jackson.
