I moved to London last Friday. Isn’t that mad?
I made it. The capital. I’m actually the first person from my college to venture further than Manchester. I mean, what can I say? I’m fearless.
Hope has just moved out from her childhood home in Macclesfield to the bright lights of London. After getting a job at a (get this) dinosaur themed bar and moving in with a very mature housemate, everything seems to be going brilliantly. But when she learns some questionable things about her manager, things at work spin out of control. Hope slips deeper and deeper out of her depth and questions how ready she was to leave home after all.
With witty audience interactions, hilarious physical comedy and touching vulnerability, you can expect a good laugh followed by a single tear rolling down your cheek.
Almost Adult was developed from Charlotte’s zoom work-in-progress Twenties which was met with critical acclaim:
Everything Theatre ★★★★ “A play made in lockdown that proves good writing and simple inventiveness can make a monologue from your lounge feel so much greater.”
North West End ★★★★ “Funny and relatable”.
The work-in-progress also won Everything Theatre’s Make Do and Mend Award for Ingenuity in Lockdown and was nominated for The Voice’s Editor’s Choice Award.
This production is made possible by an Arts Council Culture Recovery Fund grant awarded to the Old Red Lion Theatre.
