PREVIEW: Young, Queer & Skint @ The Marlborough

What does it mean to be Young, Queer & Skint in 2017?

This new project, supported by Arts Council England, sees the Marlborough Theatre running a series of mini-festivals throughout the year responding to issues relevant to the people who walk through their doors.

They launch this weekend with three days of performance and events featuring Scottee, Sh!t Theatre, Katy Baird, Selina Thompson and Bryony Kimmings.


Workshy by Katy Baird
Katy Baird is a Glasgow born, London-based artist and activist who often finds herself in uncomfortable situations of her own making. Her solo work is intimate and autobiographical, reflecting on gender, class and sexuality. She has performed at Live Art festivals and venues across the UK as well as squat parties, clubs and raves.

This is a show about work. Some people work to make money. Some people work to feel fulfilled. Some people don’t work at all.

For the last two decades, Katy has been at the frontline of the customer service industry. From getting you high to supersizing your whopper meal she has done everything she can to make you happy.

She isn’t sure if she has much left to give but, for this show (like the true professional she is), she will put herself out there one more time to give you everything you want.

Working Class Dinner Party by Scottee

You are invited to dinner with Scottee in which he and his guests will talk about the C word class!

Joined by acclaimed artists Bryony Kimmings and Selina Thompson they will discuss growing up on council estates, working class identity and learning how to be posh in an art world dominated by the middle classes.

Whilst they chew down into social politics and crispy pancakes you are encouraged to join the conversation and ask questions – you can also sit on your hands and do nothing.

Part show, part discussion, this is a dinner party that Nigella would wince at.

Letters to Windsor House by Sh!t Theatre

 

Written and performed by Sh!t Theatre – ‘the rising stars of performance art’ (Telegraph) duo comprising Rebecca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole. They have lived and worked together for five-and-a half years now. From the kitchen of their North London council flat they have been watching a London and a friendship that’s changing.

This housing crisis gets personal. This is a show for Generation Rent.

Song, politics, dodgy landlords, property magnates, detective work and a loophole in the Postal Services Act, all come together in (another) potentially felonious hour by the makers of 2015’s award- winning Women’s Hour.
