Camden Fringe: Suck Seed

suck.jpg

Porn sells better than princesses... is a lesson Gaelle learnt when she was a teenager. Her dad’s a pornographer. He’s great at selling porn but even better at spending money and accumulating debts. Her mum's unhappy in her marriage and asks for a divorce. Gaelle decides that she’s going to do better than both her parents. Did she?
It must be wonderful to be a crow... You start thinking stuff like this when you have heartache. But this year Jo’s conquered all that, right? We are told to be the best version of ourselves, but is there a Jo already holding that position in a parallel universe somewhere? A light-hearted look at metaphysical thinking to cope with reality as we know it.

Camden Fringe: My Name is Cathy

kathy.jpg

A darkly comedic rise and fall story, with a coming of (middle) age theme, dealing with alcoholism in the professional classes, the barriers and prejudice that an ambitious woman faces, and the bias of a judicial system that, at heart, has remained stubbornly patriarchal. 
Set one evening in 2016 as teacher Cathy celebrates her 50th birthday alone, and recalls events of the past fifteen years. We meet her younger self, who has it all; perfect family and successful career. But as the years go by, hope turns to hubris, as she is dealt a series of losing hands. The bank of life forecloses, and her world unravels, as her once perfect personal life and glittering career and children are put in jeopardy by a s**t-storm of poor life choices, farcical situations and no-win deals, created with casual indifference by the men in her life. Ultimately life affirming and triumphant Cathy, a fallen superwoman, faces down her demons as she confronts her worst enemies. An absurdist farce for our time.

What would happen if a ghost hunting TV crew and a pair of treasure hunters, unaware of each other’s presence, find themselves in the same spooky mansion in the middle of nowhere?

Is this a spooky coincidence? Neither pair is aware of the other. Who will get what they are looking for? Is the mansion really haunted? Is there really any treasure?

Double Bill: Hitman & Her | Legacy of William Ireland

hitman.jpeg

A Preview of two New plays , following the success at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe with the five-star show After Today, Stage D’Or returns with their latest works from acclaimed playwright Tim Connery. London, Today, Donna Ryeman’s friend meets a hitman in a pub as she wants her husband dead. He is reluctant to accept, particularly as it seems that Donna Ryeman’s friend may not be 'all there' even though she has a certificate to prove her sanity. Will he take the job? What’s with the Post-it Notes? Why is the pub suddenly so empty? And who is having an affair with her husband?

London, 1796. Meet young William Henry Ireland, self-proclaimed poetic genius (or idiot according to others). William relates the improbable but true story about how he managed to not only improve on some of Shakespeare’s works (giving them a happy ending) but also forge a brand new Shakespeare play, causing riots and the near-destruction of the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane – which of course was not his fault.
