A new dark comedy offering a limited run on stage at Camden Fringe Festival. The play follows two cousins Chantal and Georgia, who go on a journey of exploring their true identities. They explore LGBTQ+ relationships and possible psychological disorders. In the play, Chantal is preparing for her first proper date with a girl, she seeks her older cousin Georgia's help and the two then begin discovering truths about LGBTQ+ relationships, family dynamics and also each other. Things get messy between the two of them and in the end they uncover a hidden truth that could destroy their relationship.
Written by emerging theatre artists Steph McNeil and Helin Ekin, who also portray the characters of Chantal and Georgia. The play is based on the writer's actual friendship with each other. Steph felt that, like the character of Chantal, she has an energetic and slightly reckless side to her personality. Ekin felt that, like the character of Georgia, she is more straight forward thinking and often finds herself acting as a mother figure to Steph. This inspired the premise for the play, a young girl seeking guidance from an adult figure and coming to terms with the harsh realities of life.
It’s laugh out loud funny and certainly one to watch out for again
