Delay – 5 – 24 March Camden People’s Theatre

Delay is a new performance zine that can be purchased from Camden People’s Theatre (for £2) from 5 – 24 March 2018.

Delay is a queer love story told in an 8 page zine. It is part of the Sprint Festival and a Private Play that takes place in the bar of Camden People’s Theatre (58-60 Hampstead Rd, Kings Cross, London NW1 2PY).

Delay is a story about waiting. It is love story where a person is waiting in the Camden People’s Theatre bar for their partner to arrive. It attempts to capture the moment in a relationship when you can’t decide if putting the effort in is worth it. I think it is a universal theme and an interesting one to explore in the Private Plays format. The story is from the perspective of a same sex couple, but the subject matter could apply to anyone.

The Zine for Delay does not actually contain a traditional theatre script. With this Zine I wanted to try something new and experimental with words, language and illustrations. It is more like a comic book that concisely imparts the inner thoughts and frustrations of the characters within the story. As thoughts and feelings can be difficult to express through words, the language and presentation is abstract and obscure and asks the reader to draw their own conclusions. Delay is therefore an experimental piece.

I would like audiences who turn up to the Sprint Festival to read the Zine whilst they are waiting for a show, or waiting for their friends to turn up. Alternatively if they do not have time, they can take the Zine home with them and read it there. If they use their imagination you could envision being in the bar at Camden People’s Theatre.

Letters We Leave Behind

In late 2016 I was awarded a residency from the National Theatre of Scotland as part for their Starter for Ten scheme.  During the residency I created the framework for a new Private Play involving puppetry. The title of this show is Letters We Leave Behind. It is still a work in progress and is a special show involving 5 puppets that the audience member will manipulate. The puppet in turn will give a letter to the participant that the audience member can read. There will be five letters (one for each puppet) and they tell the story from the show. Letters We Leave Behind will be completed in early 2018.

Borderline Personality Disorder – New Mini-Zine

Borderline Personality Disorder

This mini-zine looks at the condition of Borderline Personality Disorder and gives a personal account of the emotion of living with this affliction.
It is a short 8 page performance documentary in a zine. The performance takes place in front of a mirror and requires the participant to read the zine to themselves or out loud (it is their choice).
Borderline Personality Disorder is the second performance in the Do It Theatre mini-zine performance series and will be available at various venues during the Edinburgh Fringe. Check on twitter to stay up to date with where and when.
