A new piece for Beta Public VI

This week I’m making a LET’S PLAY for Beta Public VI, London’s only curated night of videogames and performance. I’ll be showing a brand new short performance made in response to playing a video game. Which I confess I haven’t done for a very long time..

Beta Public is on for three nights, 8th-10th November at Camden People’s Theatre, and I’m part of the Thursday night edition. Full info and tickets here: cptheatre.co.uk.

MAN UP final: 18th November

This past Wednesday I took Ollie to The Glory for their drag king contest, MAN UP. I was excited and mildly terrified, having never performed in this context before – a sweaty bar and a (blood)thirsty crowd. But I’m super pleased to say that Ollie has made it through to the final, which is next Wednesday 18th November. He will be in esteemed company, not least with excellent pals Figs In Wigs and johnsmith.

Photos from this week soon.

The Glory is at:
281 Kingsland Road, E2 8AS
