TICKETS for the annual Ipswich Pulse Fringe Festival go on sale on Monday, it has today been announced.

Hosted by the New Wolsey Theatre the festival provides a platform for the development and presentation of work by regional, British and international artists.

The line-up for this year's Festival, which opens on May 27, includes an eclectic mix of theatre, dance, comedy, music, event led visual arts, physical theatre and circus led work.

Festival director Stephen Freeman said he is particularly excited by two award winning productions - Paperweight by Top of the World, an absurd story of two men trapped in mindless office jobs, and The Caravan by Look Left Look Right, which tells the stories of real families forced to live in caravans as a result of the severe flooding in 2007.

He added: “Performances of The Caravan actually take place in a caravan with an audience of eight so early booking is essential.

“I actually saw Paperweight in Edinburgh last year and booked it immediately. I'd never seen anything quite like it before and I'm really excited it's coming to Pulse.”
