7 March

"You have a plan, and then you don’t. You have a dream, and then you wake up. You fall in love, and your heart gets broken. The question is: do you pick up the pieces and try again?" 

Plan B for Utopia is a show about how we choose to live our lives: about having a dream, giving it up and trying again, but above all, it’s a story about friendship. Mixing dance, theatre and storytelling with a good dose of humour, the performance features classic songs like Somewhere Over the Rainbow, When you Wish Upon a Star and What a Wonderful World.

Age guidance: 11+

The Stage

“Original and uplifting, Plan B for Utopia is one of the stand-out dance theatre pieces on show at this year’s Fringe.”
