Things I've done for the stage
Join us in the underworld of London's Soho in the 1950s, with its strip joints, revue bars and seedy bookshops. Dark doorways and dingy stairwells lie beneath the neon lights, and police raids are an occupational risk.
Three punters descend such a stairwell in search of their fantasies, only to be caught up in such a raid, sharing the space with three of Soho's denizens: the shop owner, a stripper, and a fading burlesque dancer. The laughter gradually dies away, as the mood turns alternately domestic and dark.
This is a play written and directed by Alan Godfrey. Unlike my last two Buxton appearances, I only have a minor role in this. Alan will do all the creative stuff, I will just do the administative liaison with the venue and fringe.
The cast of A Nasty Little Play is:
|Johnny, the shop owner||Michael Fletcher|
|John 1, a discreet punter||Alan Godfrey|
|John 2, another discreet punter||Neil Gander|
|Raymond, a not-so-discreet punter||Chris Neville-Smith|
|Jill, a stripper||Hazel Geldard|
|Miranda, a burleque dancer||Caroline Chapman|
A Nasty Little Play will preview at:
UPDATE: Sorry, the City Theatre preview is off. Turns out the building work on the theatre entrance that wasn't supposed to affect the rest of the build has made the entire building unusable for the next month. Come on Monday.
It will then go to Buxton on the following dates:
All performances take place in Pauper's Pit, Underground Venues, Buxton. Details of how to book are on the the Underground Venues page here.
