Each has a story, each a woe, each is scabrous yet tender, ribald yet plangent, Reprehensible Men are coming to Tristan Bates Theatre, 15-20 August at 9.15pm.
Reprehensible Men has a cast of five and is written by Dan Horrigan, whose screenplay Populace was hand picked for Danny Boyle’s Shuffle Festival and has screened globally winning numerous awards. His short film Devotion has won best horror.
Dan’s play Face The Camera And Smile made the shortlist for the Kings Cross Award for New Writing and played at The So And So Arts Club in the West End in July 2016. He won the Critical Stage Award in 2001.
He directed The Duchess of Malfi with a cast of 17 and a circus troupe at The Charing Cross Theatre in 2010. Contortion, Hula, grotesque clown, rope, and aerial silk, all combined to trap the spectator in the curious and macabre hues of the 16th-century play.
His radio play Learning To Swim was directed by Sally Avens at Broadcasting House, featuring Alison Pettitt and Tony Bell. A collaboration between Talawa and the BBC part of the Gridlock project. His dramatic monologue Perennial was published in The London Spoken Word Anthology 2016 and features at The Tristan Bates as part of Camden Fringe alongside other stories in Reprehensible Men.
Tony Bell is known for his work with Ed Hall’s Propeller company (an all-male Shakespeare company) and most recently he appeared in the stage version of The Damned United.
