<p>Katy Brand’s hit Edinburgh Festival show <em>I Was a Teenage Christian</em> is an honest, fascinating and funny exploration of her self-imposed conversion and total immersion in evangelical Christianity.</p> <p>One Sunday, aged 13, Katy went to a local church service and became a fundamentalist Christian. From then on she attended church four times a week. For seven years she put the &#8216;fun&#8217; into fundamentalism…and the &#8216;mental&#8217;. She was an obnoxious, self-important dick, but at least she knew she was going to heaven. Now she&#8217;s not so sure. Katy will relive her glory days of certainty and judgement (and unrequited love…) whilst trying to figure out what the hell was going on in her own head.</p> <p>Katy Brand performed her first professional comedy gig in a London pub in 2004, before joining acclaimed sketch comedy troupe Ealing Live!, and touring around the country with her own show. She won a British Comedy award for her TV sketch series <em>Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show</em> in 2008 and has since written for and appeared in numerous films, TV programmes and radio shows. Her first novel, <em>Brenda Monk is Funny</em>, was published in 2014. She has worked as a journalist, screen writer, actor, comedian and director. She really wanted to be an astronaut but didn’t have the maths. She also once dressed up as Beyonce on national television and very nearly got away with it…</p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 60 mins<br /> <strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+</p> ]]>

<p><strong>Part of 2017 London International Mime Festival</strong></p> <p>Only Bones is an award-winning new production by New Zealanders Thomas Monckton and Gemma Tweedie, and Finland’s Kallo Collective.</p> <p>Monckton’s stage is one metre square. There’s a chair, a lamp and a circle painted on the floor.With its quirky, low-tech aesthetic and using just his bendy, bickering, wiggling hands and seemingly uncontrollable face, Monckton creates an exquisite piece of micro-physical theatre unlike anything you’ve seen. Ahypnotic show about a lot, using very little.</p> <p>Born in New Zealand, Thomas Monckton trained in circus arts in Christchurch, and then at the Lecoq school in Paris. His solo show for CircoAereo, <em>The Pianist</em>, was a hit at <span class="caps">LIMF</span> 2015 and continues to tour worldwide. Now based in Finland where he is a member of the Kallo Collective, fellow Lecoq-graduates, he premiered <em>Only Bones</em> in New Zealand in 2015 before taking it to the Avignon and Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016 where it played to sold-out houses.</p> <p><strong>Get the best seats at the best price</strong><br /> This show has <strong>allocated seating</strong> offering you more choice and less need to queue. <strong>Ticket prices</strong> for this show are subject to change as the theatre fills, so if you can book early and be flexible with your dates you’ll be guaranteed to bag yourself the best seats at the best price. <a href="http://www.sohotheatre.com/visit-us/terms-and-conditions/">Find out more</a></p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 40 mins<br /> <strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+</p> ]]>
