Pop-Up Theatre comes to the Camden Fringe 2016 with Acting Exercise by acclaimed British playwright Peter Barnes, 8-9 August at 2.30pm, at the Etcetera Theatre.
Directed by Jon Campbell (White Space Film Productions), this short farce depicts a meeting between an actor, Rowan, (David King), and Mr Willet, (Joe Staton), a distraught husband who accuses Rowan of stealing his wife.
Rowan is forced to employ all the theatrical skills at his disposal to try to convince Willet he is mistaken. But the question is, will Willet be fooled?
David came up with the idea of Pop-Up Theatre in 2015 following a brain hemorrhage and the discovery he had an AVM (arteriovenous malformation).
Acting has played an important part in his recovery. He hopes that his performance will inspire others who have had a brain injury. David and Joe are also currently working on a feature film, Seagull, with White Space Film Productions, inspired by Anton Chekhov’s play The Seagull.
Any profits from ticket sales will go to the Brain and Spinal Research Fund via Mr Francis Johnston, consultant neurosurgeon, at St Georges Hospital, Tooting, London.
