Preview performance of my show FABLED at theatre503.com on the night of the 24th of July, 2012.
"Lois Tucker returns as her wordless alter ego Lois of the Lane in this irreverent black comedy, performed to a continuous soundtrack.
Finding herself as part of an unlikely storytelling set-up with only her wits and a bottomless suitcase to hand, Miss of the Lane will endeavour to entertain against all odds."
My performance was still pretty rough around the edges at this point and not as BEAUTIFULLY HONED as it was after a whole month's run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, but this is the only filmed performance and, actually, I kinda like how shonky it is.
-me sweating off most of my mascara as it was SO HOT ON STAGE.
-my bike bell breaking and me having to resort to clanging another prop instead to make a noise.
PLUS: see if you can work out where the soundtrack froze and the backup soundtrack had to be played instead... I think I managed to hide my genuine panic/confusion...
A BIG THANK YOU to my creative team for helping to make this bizarre brain fart a reality in such a stupidly short amount of time!
