Tiny Theatre on Sixty-Seven
We reviewed Tiny Theatre‘s Sixty-Seven when it was first on at Lion and Unicorn Theatre at the end of 2021. It was a play that our reviewer said conatined “very pertinent themes of environmental impact and mental health, yet at its heart is a story about female friendship.” You can read the full review here.
So when we bumped into the company’s co-founders Olivia Roebuck and Alexandra Brailsford during a trip to see another play at Lion and Unicorn, we couldn’t resist inviting them to come and chat with us. Especially because the play is getting a fresh outing in June, having been invited back for a second week at Lion and Unicorn.
It was a great chance to find out more about the play. We also found time to discuss why the Lion and Unicorn is such a welcoming place for emerging artists, and express surprise that whilst at drama school they didn’t get encouraged to explore fringe theatre more!
Beth and Jools are two twenty-something legal secretaries working Monday to Friday, nine to five with a pension package they’ll probably never see (but it’s a nice thought) …
In an age of Instagram, veganism and eagerly waiting for ‘Friyay’, this comedic story of an unlikely friendship explores the highs and lows of being a woman in 2022.
Sixty-Seven plays at Lion and Unicorn Theatre 7 – 11 June, further information and tickets can be found here.
