Unhappy Birthday with Amy Lame - Camden People's
Unhappy Birthday, written by and starring by Amy Lame, at Camden People's Theatre, a fringe venue near Warren Street, central London, from 1 to 12 May 2012.
The show is directed by Scottee.
Amy Lame invites you to share her birthday. Morrissey - icon for the bookish, bespectacled weirdos of the world - is invited too. A seat is reserved for him... will he arrive clutching a bunch of flowers and a gift? Will he turn up at all? Unhappy Birthday is an exuberant culture clash of party, performance and DJ set, where guests will be called on to get out of their seats, play pass the parcel or even take on the role of Morrissey himself. Cracking open the cult of celebrity and fandom, Amy flays fat, faith and sexual identity; probes the pains of growing up; and cross examines a curious nostalgia for a time that may never have existed except in the bedroom of our imagination.
