Donny has committed an act that shocked everyone. Tabloids called him ‘evil’ and The Most Hated Boy Alive. No one can understand why he did what he did. And no one can forgive him. But Donny’s not really interested in forgiveness. All he’s interested in is ... getting his own television show.

Written by internationally acclaimed writer Philip Ridley, Tonight With Donny Stixx is the companion piece to Ridley’s 2013 Fringe First winner, Dark Vanilla Jungle. It was first seen in preview at the Soho Theatre, London, on 27 July 2015, and went on to premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The Independent described it as ‘A heart-wrenching blend of tenderness and viciousness . . . Donny Stixx’s final trick is to cut the viewer in half, split between sympathy and horror’.
