Last night, I decided to get cultural and went to check out Bedtime Solos, a new play by Jakob Holder at The Old Red Lion Theatre in Islington.
Featuring two actors and just two lone beds, Bedtime Solos is an emotive narrative, which explores a relationship from the inside out.
Poetic and humorous, a couple’s insecurities are laid bare and the audience is let into their inner most thoughts, worries and distractions.
Across The Pond is a new non-profit theatre company, showcasing fresh talent from the UK and USA.
Producer of the show Emma Laugier said, “We chose to stage our first play at The Old Red Lion Theatre as it’s a well known platform for new fringe theatre and has a good reputation for showcasing up-and-coming plays.”
Jakob Holder is one of the company’s two resident playwrights, accompanied by British playwright, Ali Muriel.
Look out for more plays from the new company on both sides of the Atlantic as they plan to take a British play to the USA soon.
Bedtime Solos is on at The Old Red Lion Theatre until 26 September. For further information or to book tickets, visit the website www.oldredliontheatre.co.uk
