Unhappy Birthday - T1285552910

Amy Lame, cult performer and co-creator of London's infamous Duckie collective, invites you to attend her Unhappy Birthday and take your place at the party table! Her invited guest of honour is the iconic Smiths frontman and cult global superstar, Morrissey: a pop icon for the excluded, oppressed, bookish, fat, spectacle wearers, LGBTQ, and outsiders of the world. A place is set for Morrissey...he's running late...will he arrive clutching a bunch of flowers and a bottle of plonk? Will he bother to turn up at all? The show explores issues around the cult of celebrity, obsessive pop fandom, fat and body fascism, victimhood, and litigation culture. It is a personal narrative blurring the lines between fiction and reality. It is interactive and multi-media with use of sound, film, social networking, live music, pop quiz show and lots of snacks. Unhappy Birthday is a scratch performance, written and starring Amy Lam? (Duckie) and directed by Scottee (Eat Your Heart Out).

Amy Lame's Mama Cass Family Singers - T793130784

Amy Lame was a chubby child star in a 60's cover band. Touring with her dysfunctional siblings she had everything she ever wanted - fame, fortune and sandwiches. She lived the American dream until it turned around and bit her on the ass. As Amy peels away the layers of her shady past, questions are raised. Did Mama Cass die choking on a ham sandwich? Did her sister really eat a two-week old hash brown she found in the back of a station wagon? And just who is Schwartzy the dog?Author Amy Lame. Director Christine Harmar-Brown. Performer Amy Lame.
