Praise for ★★★★ Prurience at Southbank Centre:
“Tests the limits of theatre” Lyn Gardner
“The kind of art that leaves its mark on you” The Times
“A deeply unsettling experience, one that gets right to the core of contemporary life” Whatsonstage
★★★★ “An unforgetabble feat of emotional engineering” – The Guardian on Home
Christopher Green is an Olivier-Award-winning playwright, an experiential theatre maker, and a performer with really lovely hair. He made ★★★★★ Office Party, staged a totally immersive show in a care home, and has toured his cabaret characters Ida Barr and Tina C internationally. He’s written books; he’s often on the radio.
I’ve won awards. I’ve played different characters. I’ve created genre-busting, emotional, funny work, which people love. This is my new show. TBH, I’m thinking there’s a chance I might not turn up. You might want to come and find out whether I do or not. Or not.
Expect the expected! This show is probably going to be exactly what you’d expect from brand “Christopher Green”. No fourth wall, a re-negotiation of the fragile, beautiful, invisible contract between performer and audience resulting in innovative, well-reviewed theatre. So that’s reassuring in an uncertain world, isn’t it?If you’ve never heard of me, then you’ve nothing to lose, right? I might show up. You might love it. Anything’s possible.
