Exeter Fringe Housewarming
Double Bill – GAMBIT & Close Enough
A double bill of new performances, presented by Artists who have completed the Northcott Futures programmes.
GAMBIT by Roisin McCay-Hines, with Esther Wilson and Catrin Walker-Booth:
We all f*** up. Every single one of us. But f******* up before you’ve even really started? How do you come back from that?
GAMBIT explores the complexities of what it means to be young, and the struggles of trying to navigate your way through an unknown future… especially when you’ve f***** it up straight off the bat.
Close Enough by Cristina Varga:
Close Enough is an autobiographical solo performance that talks about belonging and challenges stereotypes about immigrant women from Eastern Europe. The piece is based on real life experiences of actress Cristina Varga, a 28-year-old woman from Romania who moved to the UK three months before Brexit to study, but at some point ended up doing something completely different from what she expected.
With a comedic approach, Cristina shines light on the diversity and the different dynamics between the two cultures that she is now part of: Romania and UK. And by looking back on her own childhood and talking about her family, tries to discover if there are any connections between these two.
With the use of original live music, footage from her childhood and physical theatre elements, Cristina questions her place in this world and hopes she’ll find an answer by the end of the performance.
