An unreliable show about the fetishisation of the feral female.

Overview

"Hands up who's bored of white people making sentimental autobiographical solo shows that use direct address, spoken-word, and gritty clichéd accounts of other people's struggles for the entertainment of the middle classes. The well-established default.
... Whoops."

Fresh off the back of a sell-out scratch at Camden People's Theatre, OPAL FRUITS is an unreliable solo show about the fetishisation of the feral female - about working-class women and the trouble with 90's nostalgia - spliced with stories from four generations of women who came of age on the same council estate in South London.

OPAL FRUITS is Holly Beasley-Garrigan's debut solo show. It's a tongue-in-cheek questioning of the broader implications of faux-working-class cultural trends and a re-claiming and re-casting of the self-congratulatory, spoken-word solo show. The show explores what it means to be making performance as a working-class artist today... to have a stake in two worlds but to feel as though you don't really fit into either.

“In 1998 a much loved British sweet changed its name to – we don’t say that name here. It was all downhill.”
