Show-stopping Sugary Goodness At WEST END BAKE OFF 2017Show-stopping Sugary Goodness At WEST END BAKE OFF 2017
May 22, 2017

On a (thankfully) sunny Saturday afternoon, the thespians who usually inhabit London theatres turned bakers for the day. Benefitting Acting For Others, an umbrella name that represents 15 charities devoted to helping people in the theatre business, the West End Bake Off was a bounty of show-stopping sugary goodness.

Peter Darney brings back his highly acclaimed and disturbingly honest 5 Guys Chillin' to King's Head Theatre. After an original run in 2005, the show has touched audiences at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, and the SoHo Playhouse in New York. The play challenges the uncomfortable implications that come with the practice of ChemSex, the sexualised drug use largely spread among gay men. By interviewing real consumers and transposing their words verbatim, the playwright and director is effective and straight to the point.

Five people face the shame that comes with being exposed in the digital age: awoman dealing with her younger sister's sex tape being published; a father coming to terms with his daughter's sexuality and his relationship with porn; a scorned woman's revenge on an ex-boyfriend; an app developer's faux pas; and a young woman's self-love discovery that turns against her. Thetales are joined by a thread consisting of sex, porn, and the impulsiveness and appeal of new media.

Lettice Douffet (Felicity Kendal), a tour guide at Fustian House, has inherited her mother's penchant for theatricality. This inclination leads her to filling the gaps in the boring history of the stately home with embellishments and imaginative stories. Her dismissal by her supervisor Lotte Schoen (Maureen Lipman) oddly marks the start of a timid friendship that will develop into a fascinating adventure for the two lonely women.

In a zombie-raided Scotland, best friends Paul (Paul Thirkell) and Rob (Finlay Bain) have found refuge in an abandoned flat. Out of luck, they managed to surround themselves with all kinds of comforts, so they've accustomed to a shielded, secure life in their sanctuary away from the horrors of the real world. Their lives turn upside down with the arrival of Penelope (Pearl Appleby), a young woman who survived a lot more than just zombies.

At the end of World War Two, Annie (Ruth Gemmell) and Isabella (Emma Paetz) are being interviewed in Poland by the Allied forces. The two women tell two sides of the same story: the former - a Commander's wife whose biggest dream when she was younger was to become a dancer but is forced into marriage - recalls her married life with her husband Frederick, the latter - a ballet dancer - explains how she was picked from a concentration camp because the Commander wanted a ballet dancer for his party.

Dennis Potter's 1976 work finds new life with Matthew Parker. Written as a television play but never broadcasted due to its disturbing plot, it was finally produced at the Sheffield Crucible in 1977. Now, 40 years later, its revival is unsettling and relevant as then.

After breaking up five years prior, Charlie (Samuel Lawrence) writes a quite melodramatic letter to Vic (Katharine Davenport), his ex-girlfriend, confessing how he is dead inside, and how he almost feels as if he were rotting away. He is a medical mystery, his heart is not pumping any blood and his organs are de facto dead.

Music is the centrepiece at Hadley Fraser and Will Butterworth's show at Zedel.
