Monologues make their mark at Teddington Theatre Club
6:00am Saturday 10th August 2013 in News
Teddington Theatre Club will toy with a new format when it performs Pity about Kitty alongside three monologues next month.
The unique combination of play and monologues comes from two local playwrights, both connected to Teddington Theatre Club.
In Jimmie Chinn’s play, Pity about Kitty, staff nurse Kitty gets carried away giving evidence at a medical tribunal and finds her helpful deeds misunderstood.
The three monologues by Patrick Adams, who recently won the top award at an Artsrichmond playwriting festival, explore the lives of a middle aged woman, a young disabled girl and a military man.
Director Ken Mason says: “The two parts are not related but they both have a medical theme.
“It’s something quite different, but we did something similar last year.
“The studio just holds 50, it’s very intimate and so it’s an ideal venue for the talking heads part.
“The play is quite good too, it’s very interesting.”
The director will also take part in a post show discussion on Sunday, September 15, when audiences can have a chat about the performance.
Pity about Kitty; Hampton Hill Playhouse; September 15 to 21; 7.45pm, Sunday 6pm; £8 to £10; 0845 8387529; ttc-boxoffice.org.uk.
