8th – 12th of August
Camden Fringe 2017
Performed by Alyce Louise-Potter
Directed by Xander Mars
A one-woman verbatim play about medicinal and recreational drug use; and the checkered life of the woman who took them. What’ s performed are the true stories of Billie, who bounces joyously between sex, drugs, and rock & roll, before landing squarely in your heart.
Performed by Alyce Louise-Potter, Billie is a lovable eccentric. Her life is, frankly, incredible, and Louise-Potter brings you effortlessly through hilarious misadventures, and blackest tragedies, with equal and heart-breaking ease. The performance is nuanced and deeply touching.
With every delighted tongue-wagging cackle, you can see the 60-something soul behind the headphones.
My only regret is that I’ve only managed to review it so close to the end of it’s run. I can only hope it’s remounted elsewhere soon. Please, do yourself a favour and see it if you can.
And if you’re a lover of verbatim, call in sick from work right now.
