Two unique episodes of Character Solos: a collection of solo stories; poignant, funny, and compelling mini-plays invented, written and performed by each actor.
Each ‘Solo’ delves into a new Character’s life in one very potent moment. The magic of these pieces is that the actors create everything for the audience: the atmosphere, setting and their imaginary scene partners. Each piece will transport us to a new world and tell a new story, from a London drug dealer, to a southern American preacher, to an Australian mother desperate to get her child into the right school, to a poet in a relationship breakdown sometime in the past, to an elderly care android in some near future.
The actors take us on a diverse journey through time and place: Character Solos is a celebration of actor-led new writing and character transformation. Each episode is a jam-packed show full of solo performance wonder. Although each episode is self-contained and unique and can be enjoyed individually, watch both episodes to see the full range of stories and the craft of the actors, as they inhabit their distinct roles.
