“The great migration south from the Edinburgh fringe begins this week. Over at Shoreditch Town Hall you can catch Civilisation, Jaz Woodcock Stewart’s heart-breaking dance-theatre piece about a woman grappling with grief. Meanwhile Soho’s Autumn season includes Karim Khan’s Edinburgh hit, Brown Boys Swim, but kicks off with Haley McGee’s Fringe First winning solo, Age is a Feeling. It takes as its starting point the suggestion that we are only properly an adult from the age of 25 when the brain is fully formed. After that it’s a countdown to death. Nobody will be saved. So we better make the most of it before it’s too late. It’s a show which knows exactly what it’s doing and how it’s doing it, and it is prepared to take its time so that it turns the screws before it pierces the heart.”

Overview

Age Is A Feeling wrestles with our endless chances to change course while we’re alive. A covert rallying cry against cynicism and regret. A call to seize our time.

From Haley McGee (‘fearless, raw talent’ Canadian Broadcasting Company), creator of the sellout play The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale and author of a memoir by the same name (published by Hodder & Stoughton).

This never-the-same-twice show is directed by Soho Theatre’s Associate Director Adam Brace (Liz Kingsman’s One Woman Show, Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum with Expats) with scenic design by Zoë Hurwitz (winner, 2019 Linbury Prize for Stage Design) and lighting design by Daniel Carter-Brennan (Liz Kingsman’s One Woman Show).

Age Recommendation: 16+

Critic reviews

An astonishing dive into the future

· The Guardian (Edinburgh Fringe)

In purely technical terms, it’s an assured performance

· The Times (Edinburgh Fringe)

Skilful exercise in storytelling

· The Stage (Edinburgh Fringe)

Decades trickle away in this heartfelt solo performance

· WhatsOnStage (Edinburgh Fringe)

McGee's poetic voice is strong, her writing is fluid and lucid

· Broadway World
