PART OF THE CAMDEN FRINGE FESTIVAL 2017
Presented by Nigel Osner
26th & 27th August 7.30pm
“tremendously talented and very entertaining…Osner’s songs are well-turned, amusing and evocative…a pleasure to see a performer of such distinctive ability flex his wings – and occasionally bare a fang.’’
-Ben Walters, The Scotsman
Nigel Osner takes an intimate and engaging cabaret journey through a lifetime of yearning, illustrated by original songs and stories. There are a host of quirky characters, male and female. These include the Archangel Gabriel who has quit his job in Heaven to play jazz in New Orleans; a peckish vampire who casts a speculative eye over the audience; and an actor who is bemused at his loss of charisma.

The show had an applauded debut at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016. Nigel took it to the Brighton Fringe this May. The show is directed by the actress Janine Wood.
“The hugely talented Nigel Osner…all the songs were finely crafted and heartfully delivered. The man can sing! …a Hidden Gem. Go and see this unique show.”
- Paul Levy, Fringe Review
Nigel wants his show to look good. He had vampire fangs made by a fangsmith and specially designed angel wings. Other costumes include a fake fur coveted by both male and female members of the audience! And sequins? Yes, some of them too. All this is to produce an inventive and dramatic show which is always entertaining, whether funny or wistful.
“A show of angelic bite, Angel to Vampire! taps into a still pumping vein of light entertainment, injecting in some marvellous modern wit.”
- Grumpy Gay Critic
