Penny From Heaven by Emma Jarvis
Penny and Gene meet at a Unitarian Church meeting and stumble into getting to know each other. Gene’s secret gambling addiction is an obstacle that Penny doesn’t know about. This piece explores how three disparate unhappy people find each other and try to navigate towards a kind of happiness together.
Cast : Jonathan Wober, Kevin Furness, Katie Smith
Directed by Adam Hampton-Matthews
Condensed, written and directed by Anthea Hill
A wry, funny and dark monologue taking you through the ins and outs of a relationship with a chaotic, seductive, epicurean and narcissistic flatmate in the depths of lockdown. Part poetry, part prose, this piece explores what happens when we allow ourselves to throw caution to the wind and truly dredge the bottom of the barrel.
