Presented by Innovocative Theatre at Silver Meteor Gallery, Tampa FL

May 11 - 14 2017
Dark Vanilla Jungle at the Tampa Fringe Festival

This show will make you laugh, cry, and squirm in your squirm in your seat!

Local newcomer, Innovocative Theatre will be presenting Philip Ridley’s Dark Vanilla Jungle, a revival from the 2016 Camden Fringe Festival performance in London.  Ridley masterfully crafts Andrea’s tragic story.  As Andrea reveals and relives key moments in her life, the audience will be taken on the ride of their life.  This one-woman-show will leave hearts racing and post-show conversations buzzing.  Matthew Rees, an audience member at the Camden Fringe tweeted after seeing the play, “Dark Vanilla Jungle should be renamed Dark Dark Dark.  It’s immensely gripping, very weird, and hugely rewarding.”’s four-star review celebrated its “gripping performance tapestry” in “an ambitious, beautifully performed and smartly directed gem of a production.”  In his five-star review for INDY Week, critic Byron Woods called its 2015 debut “the most compelling local production I’ve seen in quite some time. Drop everything; this you’ve got to see.”
