This is my next solo theatre piece currently in development. I am currently devising it and just ten mins has been shown at the Tristan Bates Theatre in Oct 2016, directed by Colin Watkeys who directed my award nominated comedy/cabaret/solo theatre piece The Singing Psychic.
Queen Of The F****** World is a piece on women and power – sexual and otherwise, how they wield it, the cost and how it is perceived alongside the choice to fight or indeed to not fight within others’ defined parameters. These topics will be explored through the character of a stripper who, as with Irina Arkadina in Chekhov’s The Seagull, is seeing her star power fade as younger competition makes her see her life, how she got to be Queen of the F****** World (her words and her world at least) and what she is fighting to keep. It is aimed to be finished by April 2017 and start touring from then.
Knowing me (given I have produced over 100 videos for my Singing Psychic character, there will also be a film/TV/web version of some kind.
