RATTLED by Rachel Harper

"WHEN THE MIND IS PUT UNDER EXTREME PRESSURE, IT CAN FRACTURE. DID YOU KNOW THAT? SPLINTER INTO A THOUSAND PIECES. THE MORE BRITTLE THE MIND... THE MORE THE PIECES.”

Em never meant to get married. She didn’t mean to be unhappy. It all just sort of happened by accident... like running over your neighbours cat. Things always seem to just happen to Em. Now standing alone on the edge of a train station platform, she just wants to know... whose baby is this?
 
RATTLED is a vital piece of new writing that explores the effects of childhood trauma through the eyes of a woman confronted by her past. 
 
Running time: 60 minutes (approx.)

'Keep It Moving' Theatre presents

IN SEARCH OF APPLAUSE by Maroussia Vladi

Lorelei has spent the last two years of her life with Nigel. But something is missing …
 
So today Lorelei has written herself one of those ‘lists’,
 
Cons                                                                                           Pros
Sex - scarce, unsatisfying,                                                    Security
No foreplay EVER
We don’t talk
We don’t go out
He doesn’t hug or caress me
He never compliments me
He doesn’t invite me to see his friends, nor family
We don’t laugh
We don’t joke
We don’t play
He just sits there at his computer … endlessly
We don’t eat together
It’s like he doesn’t need me
He doesn’t yearn for me …
 
How much have you been willing to sacrifice for the sake of ‘comfort’ and ‘security’ in your life?
Lorelei can write as many lists as she likes … but what will she DO?
 
 
Directed by Andrew Hurst, Keep It Moving Theatre presents a new, romantic comedy in the form of a one woman play that explores our human propensity to search for validation from the world around us for the rational decisions we’ve made …while our insides tear in two.
 
But then again, who’s ever going to be truly happy? We may at least be comfortable.
