FRANK. presented Chameleon in the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2019 (Emerging Artist Award), Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019, FRINGE WORLD 2020, and a reimagined version with a chorus of women as part of Rumpus Theatre Program 2020.

Britt is currently directing Swedish performer Oliver Nilsson (Scotland! & The Bakers) in a one-man clown show, The Baroque, which is premiering at FRINGE WORLD Festival 202, and Adelaide Fringe Festival 2021 (The Mill Centre Stage Residency), and developing a new project which will tour to schools.
