In the aftermath of a date from hell, mixed with the trauma of a past loss, Ruby arrives home to find an old friend who just won’t let things go unresolved.
Driven by comedy but founded in the personal reality of loss, Me and My offers a funny, heartfelt and thoroughly relatable exploration of the everyday annoyance of emotions.
Funny Bird Productions is made up of Lucy Alwin and Sarah Tattersall, and is dedicated to telling funny, female stories exploring the extreme of emotion. Directed by trauma expert Graham Bryan. They are coming to Centre17 following sell-out shows at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre and Bread and Roses Theatre, before hitting Edinburgh Fringe in August.
‘Its new, it’s crazy, it’s fun and it gets you right where the heart needs to get’
‘The first time in my life I cried on a Saturday night for a good reason!’
‘The new Fleabag!’
The plan was simple: steal the drugs, sell the drugs and get out of town. Sequoyah and Rose are tired of living second-rate lives in the watered-down ghost town they call home. Following the guidance of the mysterious (and possibly hallucinated) Chicken Lady, our heroes come face-to-face with talking animals, a murderous hermit and their bleak futures. This stoner comedy begs the big questions: can you ever truly escape your hometown? Are drugs the answer to our problems, or the cause? Where do guinea pigs come from?
