Fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Britney is the true story of what happens to two best friends when one of them gets a brain tumour. It's told by a host of characters, including a stuffed dog, the population of a small Welsh town, Rubeus Hagrid, a pair of Hollywood Producers, the two best friends in question, and some bubble wrap.
Hilarious, poignant and touching, this show is an uplifting reminder that laughter is sometimes the best medicine.*
The debut show from ex-Cambridge Footlight Ellen Robertson (CUADC/Footlights Pantomime 2014: The Emperor's New Clothes, 2015 Footlights Spring Revue) and prize-winning playwright Charly Clive, Britney is a sketch-style-cum-cabaret-cum-play-cum-comedy-cum-one-cum-all-cum-to-the-show.
- Ultimately the best medicine is the operation and please, if you have a brain tumour, seek urgent medical attention.
