[SM] The Visitor @ The Hen and Chickens Theatre

On the 23rd and 24th August I will be operating on ‘The Visitor’ at The Hen and Chickens Theatre in Islington, London.

A charming comedy with a dark twist highlighting naivety in young adults. Set in 1981 a fly on the wall look at an average night out for Caz and Shell who find themselves part of the New Romantic movement. The arrival of an unwanted visitor turns a normal night into a different place when things spiral out of control.

This short and quirky one-act play is being performed as part of the Camden Fringe Festival.

Remember the Clause @ The Courtyard Theatre

From the 19th June to 7th July, I’ll be stage managing for All or Nothing Repertory Theatre Company. Their new season of shows, ‘Remember The Clause‘, is playing at The Courtyard Theatre in Old Street and features three full length shows.

  • Measure for Measure (LGBT Version) by William Shakespeare
  • As Is by William F. Hoffman
  • The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

These three plays are running on different nights, so be sure to check to see which plays are running on which evening.

Remember the Clause commemorates the 30th anniversary of Clause 28, a UK ruling which forbade schools from promoting or even awknowledging the existence of homosexuality.

I am very happy to be a part of this project and I’m really happy to be working with this wonderful and friendly company. Continue reading “Remember the Clause @ The Courtyard Theatre”

The Winter’s Tale @ City Lit

When I’m not writing, I also work as a stage manager in the West End. I’ve decided to add the larger productions I’m working on to this blog. This December I’m working as the DSM on a production of The Winter’s Tale at City Lit in Holborn.

I’MPOSSIBLE

On the 20th – 24th October, actor and charity activist Donald Waugh will host a unique and varied exhibition titled I’MPOSSIBLE. Working with people who have been through homelessness, mental health issues and substance abuse, and disabilities through his company Pavement 2 Catwalk, Donald has created a show which will include live performances, filmed documentaries and physical art. As well as stage managing the event, the exihibtion will feature 2 short documentaries made by myself and Abbigayle Bircham about different projects that Donald has organised over the last couple of months.

From the event page:

‘I’MPOSSIBLE’ directed by Donald Waugh also known for his starring role in Bugsy Malone, Grange Hill and Cats.

A thought provoking exploration of Donald’s Journey from Alcohol Abuse to Homelessness to Utter Madness and then spiralling into total chaos.

Through divine intervention and a spiritual awakening Donald was given a second chance, a gift of gratitude and compassion to see the world through new eyes. Whilst homeless and on the streets Donald began to see the talent and value of those who were disadvantaged. Donald spent 3 months working with survivors of homelessness, mental health, addiction and disability clients.

Using recycled materials to create art and fashion. The exhibition highlights thrown away things by thrown away people.

When homelessness, addiction, mental health and disability collide nothing is impossible.
