This is the story of a gal from New York and she’s bringing her antics to Hastings in a classic cabaret style but with an operatic twist.

Shirley finds herself ‘Washed Up’ on the shores of Hastings. She laments the trials of middle age, excess blubber, sea fog and inevitable invisibility.

You can find the full review, of this good show, on Fringe Review.

Hastings Fringe is relatively new. Like many new art and theatre initiatives it needs support. If you are in the area, get a long and see some of the shows, they may surprise you.

In real life Shirley is, Debbie Bridge and you can find out more about her, here.
