Presented by Hannah Maxwell, and returning to CPT by popular demand
“89 years. 172 different productions. I am the first female member of my family to not appear in a Thalians show for a reason other than pregnancy.”
Amateur dramatics: the unspoken past of many a Fringe performer. From four generations of leading ladies comes one queer Londoner, sharing a story of return and reconciliation – with her hometown, cultural inheritance and secret love of musical theatre.
Step-ball-changing between suburb and city, I, AmDram minds the gap between the identities we assert and the worlds we leave.
Developed through Starting Blocks at Camden People’s Theatre in 2017. The artist is honoured to enjoy the support of the Welwyn Thalians Musical and Dramatic Society (est 1929).
“Hannah Maxwell is a future star and deserves full houses.” – ★★★★★ To Do List
This is an honest, compassionate and often very funny look at how to break free from your roots, while still celebrating what they’ve given you.” ★★★★ The Scotsman
“[Hannah Maxwell’s] humour is eccentric and eclectic, informed by years of tradition, befuddlement and whole-hearted amateurism” – Exeunt
“Imaginative, good-natured and thoughtful. A rare and instant likeability… startlingly witty” – A Younger Theatre
“Hannah forded every stream and followed every rainbow to get I, AmDram right… the show [is] beautifully judged and perfectly balanced.”- Brian Logan
