Joe Orton's Fred and Madge at the Hope Theatre
Rough Haired Pointer and Adam Spreadbury-Maher present the professional world premiere of Joe Orton's Fred and Madge at The Hope Theatre in Islington, north London, from 15 September 2014 - 18 October 2014, with an official opening on 19 September 2014.
Fred and Madge are a normal unhappily married couple. Or so we think. Until we discover that they are inhabiting a play about themselves. To this meta-theatrical framework, the young Orton adds his trademark biting satire and social insight, along with the truly strange. This play is full of sardonic wit and sexual innuendo and gives a glimpse into the mind of Orton himself.
The cast for the production includes Andrew Brock, Jake Curran, Loz Keystone, Jordan Mallory-Skinner, Jodyanne Richardson, and Geordie Wright.
Fred and Madge is directed by Mary Franklin, Artistic Director of Rough Haired Pointer and Resident Director of The Hope Theatre. It features design by Christopher Hone and lighting design by Seth Rook-Williams.
