Dolls House Teaser

We are happy to share news of Fringe shows. Here we have details of a premiere for Buxton. If you want your show or event featured here then send details to: entries@buxtonfringe.org.uk




AUDIENCES FACE A TEASER …
A MODERN day ‘whodunit’ is the new theatre play ‘Write Yourself Free: Female Fact or Male Fiction?’ which has its first outing at Buxton Festival Fringe in July.
Audiences decide who wrote a controversial new book – was it ‘wannabe’ celebrity Felix Wright or his wife Jill? And is that book her facts, as she claims, or his fiction?
The play features Dolls House cast, Alan Charnley, Nici Preston and Joanna Lavelle and tackles the topical issue of historical abuse, friendship between women and why women sometimes keep dark secrets for too long inside and out of marriage.
Jaunty Felix claims he wrote the novel in bizarre circumstances in order to film a reality TV show and the work is pure fiction.
However if Jill wrote the book with the help of her new friend film-maker Belinda Gold as she asserts - then her husband is in big trouble as she reveals home truths.
Not only is ‘Write Yourself Free: Female fact or Male Fiction?’ a theatre play but it is also available as a book or download on Amazon 1505931215 – and can be read before or after the show.
Alan Charnley is a Buxton-based writer and singer/songwriter and a previous Fringe award winner. Nici Preston acted in ‘Checking In’ which won last year’s Best British Film in the London Film Awards and Joanna Lavelle is best known for her one woman shows - one of which is a tribute to Joyce Grenfall.

Write Yourself Free: Female Facts or Male Fiction is showing at the Old Clubhouse, Water Street, Buxton, on Friday July 10 and Wednesday July 22. Tickets from Buxton Opera House Box Office 08451 272 190 or 01298 214 454.
