Artificial

Ever feel confused about Love? Where to find it and keep it? Do you think you touch yourself too often?

If Love is a drug, meet the dealer.

“Liz McMullen is a bubbly and endearing performer who gives us her all in Stupid Cupid” – Vancouver Fringe

“Insightful & Delightful” – Two Cents & Two Pence (Vancouver)

“McMullen can switch her emotions on and off like a tap, and her versatility is impressive” – Performance Works (Vancouver)

Directed by James Wren

 

CLINGFILM

20th July 9.30pm £8.50

 

What do you get when a Pole, a Turk and a Brit turn up at a funeral? A cabaret. Obviously.

Welcome to Clingfilm, the dark, sparkly and anxiety-ridden world of three hipsters. Join them as they hash out one WTF after another, from turning thirty to the imminence of Brexit. This accidental musical comedy promises to be wholly unpredictable as it delves into the unique perspectives of three very different women from three very different backgrounds (from the home counties to the roughest borough in London via a grandmother who swears she actually walked here from Poland…) Join this unlikely girl band as they discover what unites and divides them.
