TINTED is coming to the Edinburgh Fringe next month


Not dated? Laura is funny, creative and sexy. She wishes she could leave her parents’ house once in a while. Being visually impaired is not a defect, although some people treat it as such. But when you’re disabled, the consent lines get a little… tinted.

Originally written as a disabled response to #MeToo, Tinted examines bodily autonomy in the group that society often leaves behind.

Director: Adam Elms is a Bristol-based actor, director and screenwriter. His acting credits include Theater Mill in Leeds, The Hope Mill in Manchester and The Barn Theater in Cirencester. He is an associate artist at Schoolhouse Productions in Bristol where he made Educating Rita & Shirley Valentine. He recently began to own his status as a visually impaired artist after having his first visually impaired role in Amy Libby’s play Eyes at the Bunker in 2018.

Producer: Joanne Brooks is a creative producer and project coordinator based in Bristol. Her most recent work as a producer includes ‘Jane Eyre’ at Tobacco Factory Theater in June 2022, ‘Tinted’ at Theater 503, Theater Deli and Gilded Balloon in July-August 2022 and ‘A Weak and Feeble Woman’ at The Alma Tavern in November 2022. Joanne works for the University of the West of England on their Future Quest project, creating and delivering sessions to provide pre-HE students with the tools to understand and realize their ideal future. Her official debut as a producer was in 2014 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Antigone and she is very happy to perform there again this year.

She reads for the 503 and Pint-Sized Theater and dramatizes The Sleeping Sword (adapted by Tatty Hennessy) at the Watermill Theater in November. Tinted is the most personal thing she’s ever written, and she’s grateful to successive teams of people who have helped her tell the story.

Performer: Charlotte Eyres is an actress/musician from North Somerset who graduated in Acting: Comedy and Satire from Goldsmiths this summer; having previously trained with The Actor’s Workshop and the National Youth Theatre. Previously, she worked at the Camden Fringe, Vaults Festival and was involved in R&D work with the National Theatre.
