The Probability of Love

•22/01/2014 • Leave a Comment

Welcome to 2014 everybody!

Already John is working away on more projects. This Saturday sees the first performance of The Probability of Love by Richard Fitchett at The Space. For those of you who missed John’s last directing job (the double Offie nominated Corpus Christi), now is the perfect time to see John’s work on in this lovely venue. Examining exactly how much more likely he is to bump into Paris Hilton than he is to win the lottery, Howard takes us on an hilarious journey through mathematics and… um.. Coventry…

By booking tickets you’ll get to see not only the marvellous Daniel Collard  (who also worked with John on Corpus), but also FOUR other monologues on wide variety of topics and all for only £12! You can even get a discount if you want to see more of the programmes on offer as part of The One Festival 2014 as booking for more than one programme should get you a £4 per ticket discount! Which could potentially mean less than a pound per play… bargain! Get your tickets quick by CLICKING HERE as there are only three performances to catch.

For those of you who follow all things OutFox, you’ll have noticed that preparation for The Gut Girls is well under way. John is once again co-producing with Amy Gunn on directing duties down at the Jack. Check out more details by visiting the OutFox pages HERE.

We’ve also had a bit of a rewrite and rejig of the website, so do take a moment to have a look around some of the new stuff whilst you’re here.

It may have been a while getting here but we’re delighted to share with you the trailer for John’s second feature film, How to Become a Criminal Mastermind. You’ll notice John being his usual calm and normal self (ahem)… beating people up whilst sporting a rather fetching dungarees/hawaiian shirt combo. It looks simply hilarious and we can’t wait to see the full film! You can find other films of John’s over in the videos section of the site by CLICKING HERE, but just below you should find the trailer we’ve all been waiting for!

The Watchers

A few of you may have seen the trailer which was up previously on the videos page for John’s 2012 short from Writer/Director Mark Bowsher, or even have been lucky enough to see it at one of the various festivals it played. If you didn’t though you can now see the whole film online in it’s entirety, RIGHT HERE! After winning BEST SHORT at the LA New Media Film Festival, one Huffington Post writer had this to say:

“The Watchers is a spooky, witty, disturbing treat – with aesthetic elements reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange, Requiem For A Dream, and early Woody Allen films – but with a style and atmosphere all of its own.” Xaque Gruber, The Huffington Post

 

 

John’s also in rehearsals for his next directing project. Rope, performs at the Jack Studio Theatre 9th-27th April. You can find out more details about this on the OutFox Productions website.

Spring Awakening

•25/06/2012 • Leave a Comment

John has broken into the world of Direction with the début for OutFox Productions, a new adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre.

Reviews are allready staring to come in and John all ready has some nice notices for his role on the show.

One Stop Arts: 4 Stars – **** – “Sexual education has always been a tricky subject but, from the confident new Outfox Productions, Spring Awakeningshows how damaging it can be to not educate our children enough. This is a dark and impressive production adapted by director John Fricker from Frank Wedekind’s 1891 original… John Fricker’s direction keeps things moving enough to include all three sides of the Jack Studio’s auditorium with each scene seamlessly overlapping the next.”

The Stage said: “In bypassing the temptation of a rousing soundtrack, director John Fricker’s adaptation focuses on Wedekind’s uncompromising writing and depiction of the conflict between teenage sexual desire and 19th-century adult morality. Stripped of singing and dancing, the play’s portrayal of child abuse, rape and suicide feels more immediate and consequently more unsettling – a reminder of what inspired censors to frequently ban its performance over the years… Fricker’s direction is strong and fluid”

British Theatre Guide: “a very creditable directorial debut from actor John Fricker, and a first production to be proud of for OutFox Productions. It will be interesting to see what comes next.”

A Younger Thetare: “this is an enjoyable and often powerful production”
