WE WANT TO MEET CREATIVES!!

We are pleased to announce a free workshop on June 5th 2017!!!!  The main purpose of the workshop is to meet and engage with new actors and creatives. We are unfortunately limited to 35 people due to the constraints of the space, so we will be filling up the workshop on a first come, first served basis.

We are going to follow no particular theme or subject, we just want to get a ton of people who share our same passion for creativity and collaboration. We want people of all ages, from everywhere. From any discipline. If you're a sound designer. Wicked. Just be prepared to join in!

We aim for these workshops to become a regular fixture in our schedule so if our aren't successful on this occasion, please keep your eyes open for another one in the future!

We'd love for you to be part of this journey with us and invite you to get in touch with us by emailing lonesomeworkshops@gmail.com with a little about yourself. We aren't asking for an essay or an application, we just want to know where your creativity lies.

From there we will be getting in touch with more information.

We hope to see you soon!

Our Artistic Director is working on a very exciting new project.

Presented by Lauren Gauge

The Unmarried is a truly original production that’s boldly cross-genre. Sharp comedic and poetic writing laced with explosive musical beats. This is gig theatre. Theatre you can rave to.

Rhythmically underscored by a live mix of beat boxing 90’s Dance hits and old school UK Garage. Award winning actor-writer Lauren Gauge explores with cutting comedy, the feminist defiance of the legacy of a patriarchal society that nearly succeeded in defining the hopes of a generation.

The story we tell is a raw, feminist, comedy. Luna is a bold a brass lager lout on the prowl for wild times, whilst in a 7 year long relationship with a wanker banker. Come and see the show explode with powerful performances, beat boxing and vocals…

Cast: Lauren Gauge
Beatbox & vocals: Kate & Nate (of Battersea Arts Centre’s beatbox academy.)
Director: Niall Phillips
