The Almedia Theatre in Islington holds an annual festival to celebrate the work of new international productions. This year's festival is on until the 9th August and is jammed with award winning shows. Although small scale, but they really pack a punch.
Opening the Festival is Tim Crouch and Andy Smith, whose world premiere show is about a reunion gone wrong. What Happens to the Hope at the End of the Evening looks at betrayal, inaction, and opposing beliefs. How do shadows fall over friendships?
This is followed by Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model , written and performed by Bryony Kimmings. Disappointed by the lack of worthy role models, Kimmings and her niece, Taylor, created their own; a pop star called Catherine Bennett.
There will be fanciful stories about the imaginary worlds such as Little on the Inside and Rabbits, where a couple enter a fantasy world, in which they become King of the Rabbits and Queen of the Hares. On a more serious note, Dream Pill looks at social issues such as child sex trafficking, while CommonWealth by Roz Wyllie closes the festival, with a look at inequality and education among young people.
