A One Life Stand x 3

Published: 7 September 2018

Hull based theatre company Middle Child will bring gig theatre show One Life Stand to three NE venues in October.

Gig theatre offers a “good night out” by mixing original live music with “big ideas and bold new writing” and One Life Stand, which gained numerous four-star reviews at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, follows in the footsteps of their 2017 Edinburgh Fringe hit All We Ever Wanted was Everything.

One Life Stand is a late-night search for intimacy across a city obsessed with sex and screens, where the expectations of lust and the limits of love are ever-changing.

You see, Kit and Kat are on a break, but Kit doesn’t know it yet. With the promise of fresh excitement just a swipe away, is Kat’s long-term lover really her lifelong dream?

Writer Eve Nicol is a director from Glasgow who has worked with the National Theatre of Scotland, Edinburgh’s Lyceum Theatre and Tron Theatre in Glasgow. She is the artistic director of Heroes Theatre which works all over Scotland and this is her professional debut as a writer.

Music is provided by James Frewer and Honeyblood. Frewer is a composer and musical director who has worked with Middle Child on seven previous productions whilst Honeyblood are Glaswegian duo Stina Tweeddale and Cat Myers whose 2016 album Babes Never Die was described by The Skinny magazine as “peppered with catchy choruses and heroic riffs… with sing-along moments galore.”

The show’s three North East dates are:

  • Thursday 4 October: Arts Centre Washington
  • Friday 5 October: The Witham, Barnard Castle
  • Saturday 6 October: Hartlepool Town Hall
