About Beige

Alex is funny. That’s what Lila says at least. But it’s more embarrassing coming from yer mum right? “It’s genetic, Hun. I’m f**king funny me.” You know that thing when yer dad’s a philandering absentee, yer relationships are forever on the wonk and the binary don’t apply? Yeh, that’s Alex on the daily. Thank f**k for Lila. Alex and their mum are both just trying to do life. Some days it’ll make them wanna punch through a wall, on others they’ll find themselves slow-dancing in an art gallery. Whatever gets ‘em through ya know? In this half-play, half stand-up gig, Anna Wheatley explores the art of being human in a world obsessed with boxes. You might do a laugh. You might do a cry. You might join hands and stick two fingers up to society. Magna is a new company founded by writer Anna Wheatley and director Jessica Daniels. Anna is a writer, actor and musician. She has bopped around being in plays and gigging but she never stopped writing. After having a number of short plays performed by RBL theatre company, Anna’s first full length play; a queer, feminist adaptation of A Christmas Carol, was staged at South Street Arts in December 2018. The company then recommissioned her to write this year’s show; a rave adaptation of Hansel and Gretel which will play at South Street this Christmas. 15+ Tags: Funny,LGBTQ+,New Writing *Contains strong language
