New Zine – Interview ABC

Interview ABC is a 32 comic book zine that looks at mental health from an experimental and investigative perspective.

Interview ABC can be bought from here

It follows an unnamed character who starts work at a radio station. He finds some old cassettes tapes that feature a series of interviews. The character listens to the tapes and realizes he is hearing interviews from an abandoned radio documentary on mental health. The character draws parallels with their own life and looks to learn from the tapes and express selfcare. The story draws on my own experiences with mental health

Interview ABC uses evocative imagery and powerful language to tell a personal and exciting story.
The comic is A5 in size and in full colour.

Delay – 5 – 24 March Camden People’s Theatre

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.
