What happens when you try to speak in someone else’s voice, but they’re not done talking?
Kit has written a show about Mabel Normand, one of the most notorious movie stars of early Hollywood, and the real cold murder case that threatened to swallow her legacy. But there are pigeons cooing in the walls of the theatre, and she keeps getting calls about a strange woman in her flat.
The debut solo show by poet Kit Finnie (Barbican Young Poet, former Roundhouse Resident Artist, member of Roundhouse Poetry Collective and Spit The Atom) is a ghost story for a new generation, and a fresh response to the ongoing crisis of an industry reluctant to examine its legacy.
This is a preview ahead of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
“Instantaneously engaged her audience with colloquial one-liners and her clever account of relatable experiences and the recognisable obscurities of the female mind…poetry doesn’t tend to the most accessible of forms but Finnie makes it ripe and ready for the taking for every single member of the audience.” – A Younger Theatre
