Line-up includes a play loosely based on Greek myth and a comedy sketch duo
The Sea Between is a play by Demi Leigh
Although the dark comedy Flumps will shortly end its run at the Barons Court Theatre, there is no summer lull in productions at the venue.
From 30 August to 17 September, The Sea Between by Demi Leigh tells the story of Ginny, a Greek millennial, who finds herself adrift in London, stuck in an unfulfilling job. A dreamer, she seems destined for a tragedy as reality comes crashing down on her. When she meets Mike, a charismatic British lawyer, she lets herself to get spirited away by the promises of love and stability. In love with the idea of what could be, she rushes to move in with him, leaving her old life behind. The Sea Between follows loosely the journey of Iphigenia from the home of her parents, to the promised marriage to the legendary hero Achilles.
Demi Leigh left Greece for the UK in 2008, in the midst of the financial crisis. After a decade working in technology, she started working with Site Productions and the Working Actors Studios as a writer and performer, before launching her own production company, Driftwood Prods. Her short plays have been performed at the Tristan Bates, Etcetera Theatre, Cockpit Theatre & Theatre Deli to glowing reviews. The Sea Between is her first full-length play, reflecting her experience as a migrant in London in the times of Brexit.
The play is recommended for ages 15 and over only and performances are at 7.30pm and tickets are priced at £15 or £10 for concessions and can be purchased online.
Comedy sketch duo Specific Cabbage
Beginning on Friday 2 September and then every Friday night through September, comedy sketch duo Specific Cabbage will be performing from 9.30pm. Kit and Arthur met at Durham University and they say they were bored by the non-stop fetishizing of stand-up comedians and yearned for the freedom and variety of sketch show comedy. Having been forced to watch classic sketch shows by their annoying parents, from a very young age, they have a wide knowledge of classics to steal their best ideas from. Drawing inspiration from Monty Python, Not the Nine O’clock News, Monkey Trousers, Big Train, Smack the Pony and League of Gentlemen, they promise a roller coaster ride of slightly bizarre contemporary sketches.
Ticket cost is £10, and are available now online.
The Barons Court Theatre is below the Curtain's Up Pub at 28a Comeragh Road, London W14 9HR.
