A Matter of Time

Theatre (solo show, cabaret)

  • Babes in arms policy: Babies do not require a ticket
  • Policy applies to: Children under 2 years


Why does time often feel so oppressive? And did it always have to be this way? Part history lesson, part cabaret show and part heart-rending personal quest, this theatrical, musical piece is an attempt to come to terms with a world in which the clock is always ticking. The debut solo show from Anjali Singh. Featuring songs! Fun history facts! Hamilton references! And silliness! ‘Special… Singh is a versatile performer, with a voice to be heard. Do not miss it.’ **** (BroadwayBaby.com).

A beautiful, bold and nourishing show. Anjali is delightful. If you are looking for something intellectually stimulating but still personal and charming, you should definitely see this show!

Just saw this show and it has been my highlight of the Fringe - I'm a sucker for science and emotion and it was both hugely interesting and a real punch in the heart. And it was funny! Beautifully performed, expertly written and delicately deployed. I can't recommend it enough, I just loved it, loved it, loved it.

This is an extremely disjointed show that I didn't enjoy at all. I'm not sure if it is going for comedy, because it isn't funny, but it isn't really anything else - except a mess. It lacks purpose, direction and identity. Its through-narrative (a break-up) is disconnected from the rest of the show both in content and tone, and the comedy just isn't strong enough to stand alone. I would have given it the benefit of the doubt in a free show, but for a tenner it really isn't worth your money or, pardon the pun, your time.

My best show in 8 days at the Fringe. Well done Anjali on creating a piece that is so clever and so entertaining. It must have taken months to research this. And your performance was faultless. Thank you!

Weird, wonderful and completely heart felt. A touching and clever show with a FIRE rap; excellent multi-rolling; and VERY RELATABLE content. A vulnerable, truthful and endearing performance. GO AND SEE IT! 5*

A true hidden gem. A very affecting performance, quietly moving, engaging, witty, and fizzing with ideas. An excellent performance all round!

I didn’t know what to expect but I found this show thought provoking, eloquent and funny throughout. The writing is personal and excellent, and the performance matches it. Highly recommended!

So clever! The morning after and I'm still thinking about it. A witty musical face to face with time, life and the choices we are afforded (or not). Don't miss!

A Matter of Time is a deeply moving and overall great show, a pleasure to watch, and, no pun intended, absolutely deserving of your time.
