Love, death, dream, betrayal, angels, time... This song cycle is eccentric, haunting and wonderfully curious. Each song springs from a photograph and the stories come alive in a mix of horror, comedy and an unmissable score. Hold still... focus... for there is life. At its heart, 35MM is a queer love story between a composer and photographer. UoN’s Musicality return to the Fringe with hits like The Ballad of Sara Berry, Leave Luanne and more! 'West End quality on local stages' (Kev Castle). 'Phenomenal vocal abilities… gorgeous harmonies… fantastically funny' **** (Everything-Theatre.co.uk).

This is one of the best student performances I've seen at the End Fringe in a LONG time!
All 5 performers on the cast are SO talented! You can tell that a lot of work and effort has been put in by all the cast members to create such a wonderful show.
The show has everything! Stunning vocals, wonderful acting and some great dance moves!

I highly recommend that you treat yourself to seeing 35mm!!!

Was so pleasantly surprised by this show! Went in knowing it was a song cycle and put on by young performers but do NOT let their ages fool you. Filled with powerhouse voices and beautiful story telling. The whole show was so tight and as a performer myself I found myself wondering how long it took to rehearse with how difficult the material is. Just shows the level of dedication and passion! Highly recommend!

A brilliant show - truly original and with some talented up-and coming actors from UoN. The vocals were superb and each singer sang truthfully, I believed every word. If you are around, check this one out - its a really great piece of different, exciting musical theatre!

Plenty to love about this. It is certainly a challenging sing, and the five strong cast gave it their all, only really struggling in the very upper reaches. I’d much rather people chose challenging work than play it safe. All 5 voices had moments to shine; particularly beautiful was ‘The Seraph’, a great comedy number in ‘The Ballad of Sarah Berry’ and a stirring epic highpoint in ‘Leave Luanne’. If you want polish go and see some bland Lloyd Webber. If you want viscerally thrilling noise, I’d recommend spending 90 minutes with these guys.

I can see the vision of this show but either due to the lack of experience or the lack of of direction this didn't really work. Performers sounded like they were often singing outside of their range and stage direction felt random at the best of times.
