Rachael's Cafe by Lucy Danser at the Old Red Lion Theatre
Little Fly Theatre presents the London premiere of Rachael's Cafe, a play written and directed by Lucy Danser, at the Old Red Lion Theatre, a 60-seat fringe venue in Angel, north London, from 25 Feb to 15 Mar 2014.
The play, which has previously been performed at the Edinburgh, Brighton and Dublin Fringe Festivals, has lighting design by Owen Evans and stars Graham Elwell as Rachael.
Eric Wininger is a churchgoing, motorbiking, loving husband and father of three, living a small-town life in Bloomington, Indiana. But when he begins living his life as Rachael Jones, there are inevitable consequences. Based on interviews with Rachael herself, Rachael’s Cafe is the true story of an ordinary man in an unusual situation, who risks everything to be true to himself. From bigoted Texans to shocking family revelations via run-in’s at airport security, an unexpected call from Obama, and the creation of a friendly, inclusive cafe.
