BBC Newsreader Simon McCoy Makes Fringe Theatre Debut in Second Skin Theatre's THE EXORCISM, 28 Nov-16 Dec

BBC Newsreader Simon McCoy is destined for a life on the stage, or at least his voice is. Second Skin Theatre's latest production, The Exorcism, features segments of newscasts recorded by McCoy detailing current episodes of starvation and poverty in London.

Written by Stoke Newington local Duncan Stevens and devised by "N16's resident theatre company" (N16 Magazine), this dark Christmas ghost story plays at the White Rabbit Theatre from November 28 to December 16.

The show's description reads: "A lavish Christmas gathering hosted by Terrence and Clara for their friends Richard and Rachel is disrupted by disturbing phenomena which then leads to reality collapsing in front of their eyes. Soon everything they once took for granted falls beyond their reach, and only a wronged voice from the past offers sanity..."

Artistic Director Andy McQuade (Best Director 2012 – Fringe Report) explores themes of terror in isolation and the unknown, in a society that leaves its forgotten poor to haunt the privileged few. All news reports included in the production are quoted from recent mainstream publications and media sources.

Second Skin Theatre's The Exorcism by Duncan Stevens plays from November 28 to December 16 (no show December 1 & 7) at the White Rabbit Theatre, 125 Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 0UH. Performances are on Wednesday to Sunday evenings at 7:30pm. Advance tickets are £10/£8 and available at www.ticketweb.co.uk.
