Greater Manchester Fringe highlights

Rosie Fleeshman explores internet dating, a quarter-life crisis and her “sexy mind” at this year’s Greater Manchester Fringe, at the King's Arms in Salford, July 15 to 16.

Narcissist in the Mirror is a one-woman show, written and performed by Rosie wearing just a dressing gown to examine her character’s flaws and faults.

It’s directed by Rosie’s mum Sue Jenkins, who played Jackie Corkhill in Brookside and Gloria Todd in Coronation Street.

And if you think the Fleeshman name sounds familiar, her brother is Richard Fleeshman, who played Rosie Webster’s boyfriend Craig Harris in Coronation Street. Her dad David Fleeshman is also an award-winning actor and director, who has appeared in Boys From The Black Stuff, Edge of Darkness, Silent Witness—and Coronation Street.

Meanwhile Kim Kardashian’s love life has been set to music by classical composer Mozart to create a satirical musical called The Marriage of Kim K—at 53two, as part of the sixth Greater Manchester Fringe in July.

And drama comes to Stockport Station with the debut of The Suitcase, The Beggar and The Wind as part of Greater Manchester Fringe. Using an old disused room, Gare Du Nord Theatre will transport audiences back to the golden age of the railways.
