A new show by emerging writer and performer Stephanie Claire premieres at the Dukes Theatre in February.
Love Letters & Other Pointless Scribbles, staged by Lancaster Teacup Theatre, is a generous and engaging piece which blends story-telling and comedy.
Stephanie, above, is considered one of the region’s rising stars of theatre writing, and this show takes us on a journey from love found to love lost, getting off at every stop along the way.
If you could forget you’d had your heart broken, would you?
Stephanie has never received a love letter, although she has fallen in and out of love with people, things and places and there may or may not be a song or two about her on YouTube.
In this new performance, she invites you to join her in celebrating the drama that comes with relationships, the memories that shape us and the heartbreaks we can never forget.
Love Letters & other pointless scribbles is about questioning being young, and taking your memory for granted.
It is about taking time to appreciate the events in our lives that shape us, and the memories we leave behind with others.
But above all it is about Whitney Houston and just wanting to Dance with Somebody.
There will be party nibbles, a game of pass the parcel and someone may even leave a message on a paper cup telephone for you!
Stephanie is a self-proclaimed “mad hatter” who aims to find the story in the everyday.
Creating theatre that plays with contemporary devices, humor and narrative to create an experience for the audience and work that can be discussed afterwards over a good cup of tea.
She is an alumna of Lancaster University’s Theatre Studies Department. www.teacuptheatre.com
The production has been supported by Lancaster Emerging Arts Platform (LEAP) an organisation based in the city which produces, curates, develops and shares emerging artistic practices with a focus on live, interdisciplinary and collaborative work.
