Anything But (a one-woman play)
By Mark Fiddaman and Lucien Young
Easter Week 3
Rambling to us over the finger-foods at her Father’s funeral party, Agnes inadvertently unfolds a tale of hilarity, disappointment, and a woman who can’t give anything but love. The last Cambridge run of Anything But won popular and critical acclaim and is likely to do so a second time this May.
Written by footlights alumni Mark Fiddaman (Footlights president 2011) and Lucien Young (Armageddapocalypse writer/performer), directed by Ben Ashenden (writer/performer in The Pin) and starring Abi Tedder (Footlights President 2010), this is a raucous, poignant comedy about the messiness of living.
As the Footlights’ Harry Porter prize winner last year, the production has been developed and recently sold-out some early London previews that have been held. This brand new version is coming to the ADC before heading up to the Fringe.
