Event Description

Company of Sirens

Present

 

Dark Vanilla Jungle

By Philip Ridley

 

Tour September/October 2015

 

With

 

Seren Vickers as Andrea

 

Directed by Chris Durnall

 

Following its acclaimed  Welsh premier in March  Company of Sirens are touring Philip Ridley’s extraordinary  one woman play about a young girls search for love and home.

Seren Vickers plays Andrea a young girl abandoned by her family, groomed and abused by sexual preditors and rendered homeless. Depressing? In part , but Ridley allows her spirit and sense of hope and possibility to shine through in sections of Bleak Humour that are breathtakingly brilliant.
