New production images have been released for We Are Kilter’s personal, interactive meetings between actor and audience member: Theatre For Two. These semi-improvised micro-plays engage the audience as a vital part of the narrative. Tickets can be booked to pop in for each stand-alone piece or to experience the full cycle over the course of an hour. Presented in a specially designed travelling venue to create an intimate escape from the world outside, the stories will be popping up at Turbine Theatre, Battersea on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 June before the run finishes at COLAB Tavern, Borough on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 July.
Gluten Free Chocolate Crispy Caramel Mini Bite from Tabby Lamb (Since U Been Gone, HighTide) is led by Mary Malone. A cancelled picnic, a cancelled protest and now a cancelled bus? Exploring the need to be seen, heard and valued for who we are, this is a clarion call for a more tender society. Mary Malone also performs Reptile by Macadie Amoroso (Blue Beneath My Skin, Bunker Theatre) – a heart-warming piece about a cold-blooded companion in the good times and the bad. Alone within four walls, sometimes you need to have a conversation, have someone talk back to you, someone to tell you that your Ex just isn’t worth it.
Rumour has it she was once the most famous woman in Hollywood but now, faded beyond memory, she lives out her days inside, trying to recreate the Golden Years. Written and performed by Ryan Lane (Ryan Lane Will Be There Now In A Minute, VAULT Festival), at The Recluse Who Lives On A Hill you might enter as a nobody, but you could leave as the next shining star. Ryan Lane also performs in Share-My-Home Companion from Gabriella Leon (Casualty). This ludicrous and powerful piece is about the need to have something to do, something to look forward to, something to talk about as time trickles and yet races away, stuck inside. So, meet a unique friend, create something never heard before and make your time count.
