Up in Town
Maddie, fifty, invites you into the intimacy of her dressing room for a conversation. Open yet guarded, the pieces gradually reveal a portrait of a flawed, funny, resilient and very real woman. From marauding rats to dishy vets, unfaithful husbands to a haunting photograph of a happy young woman frozen in time, your evening immersed in her world will be joyful, ridiculous, uncomfortable and heartbreaking. Always living through cinema, is Maddie more Dirk Bogarde or Vivien Leigh? James Dean or Julie Christie? Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a... you get the picture.
