Presented by Jointventure Theatre
Winner of Best Actress and was nominated for Best Original Show at Reading Fringe Festival.
Viki is not coping. Seeing people is a strain. Reading a book is a battle. Going food shopping is a horse-race and she’s in last place. It’s time to stop pretending to be ok.
It’s time to ask for help.
HELP! is an engaging solo performance which questions what we know about ourselves. It is about falling apart, pulling yourself together and being surprised by what you are left with.
Taking you from the dairy isle of Sainsbury’s to the greens of Ascot, via a disco of dirty secrets with a euro pop soundtrack; HELP! is a show for anyone who’s ever struggled.
It will be playing as part of The Ignite Festival, Ferment Fortnight at The Bristol Old Vic, Reading Fringe Festival, before coming to Camden People’s Theatre as part of The Camden Fringe Festival.
"A surreal blurring between reality and drama, in a refreshingly raw and honest performance.” Expose
"Hilarious, warm, touching and thought provoking all in one sitting. A must see." Dom Jinks, Arts and Culture, University of Exeter.
