Annie McKenzie’s solo show Happiness is a Cup of Tea will transfer to the Theatre N16, following successful runs at The Hen and Chickens, the Canal Cafe Theatre, the VAULT Festival, LOST Theatre.
Combining story-telling, puppetry, song and grief Annie McKenzie’s monologue explores family and grief.
During a stormy night on the cliff top at Beachyhead, Fiona Nash is faced with her own mortality. Her sister has some news, and Fiona’s been asked to write a eulogy – she didn’t even know her Mother was ill. Now she’s just trying to figure out things in that head of hers. She should probably go home, but sometimes it’s best just to have a cup of tea and a sit down for a minute.
The show is directed by Michael Tonkin-Jones (of Pipeline Theatre’s Spillikin: A Love Story), with music from Jack Lawtey and is performed by Annie McKenzie.
Theatre N16 is a theatre that was founded by young people for young people and is London’s newest Fringe venue. It is dedicated to becoming a creative centre for new and existing works to be explored and pushed to new boundaries.
Happiness is a Cup of Tea will play at Theatre N16 from the 27th November until the 1st December. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.theatren16.co.uk/happinesscupoftea
