The Frida Kahlo of Penge West at the Bridge House SE20
KPS Productions and the Bridge House Theatre SE20 present The Frida Kahlo of Penge West at the Bridge House Theatre SE20 in south east London from 4 to 23 November 2014, with an official opening on 6 November 2014.
Written and directed by South London resident Chris Larner, and produced by Penge resident Kat Portman Smith of KPS Productions, this is described as a "two-woman comedy about one woman's struggle to stage a one-woman drama about Frida Kahlo, with two women in it..."
The cast includes Cecily Nash and Olivia Scott-Taylor, with designs by Nina Patel-Grainger, lighting design by Celia Degua and costume design by Natalie Pryce.
"When quiet, unassertive Zoe agrees to let an old university chum sleep on her sofa for "just a couple of nights", little does she imagine how much her life will be blown apart. For Ruth - vain, driven, and totally narcissistic, is an unemployed actor and extraordinarily cross about it. And when Ruth determines to show the World a thing or two by writing and starring in a play of her own, the hapless Zoe is dragged unwillingly into playing a supporting role or eight."
