Part of The Last Word Festival, celebrating fearless storytelling.
Mabel and Mickey is the debut show by Kit Finnie (Barbican Young Poet, Roundhouse Collective, Spit the Atom), exploring her obsession with 20s movie star Mabel Normand.
Kit’s poetry is inflected with violence, the paranormal, and local history, asking what’s at stake when we tell a story that will never really be ours.
In this solo performance, sound effects and broken projectors force Kit to move between scenes: the ghost that seems to be haunting the theatre, and her boyfriend’s panicked phone calls about being trapped in her flat.
I’m excited about the possibilities of where I can go and what I can doSophie Read my story
