A Kind of People


Friday night and someone's having a party. It seems like a laugh, but not everyone’s having fun.

Gary and Nicky have been together since school. Gary's going for a promotion so he can get his family out of their council flat and give Nicky everything she deserves.

Anjum and Mo are used to aiming for the best. And doing whatever it takes to get it.

Gary's sister Karen is more interested in having a life than fighting for any cause.

Mark is just…always there.

And Victoria, Victoria wants to dance with somebody…

Set amidst a contemporary British community, Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti's new play, directed by Michael Buffong, asks how it's possible to get on when the odds are stacked against you.

On March 28, 2009, any number of other things may have happened, but for some cabaret fans, the date marks the first performance by the cabaret group BENDING THREADS. In an area where groups come and go, that they've stayed together performing for four years and are still going strong is a prime indication that something is working - as are their 2010 and 2011 nominations for Best Group and Best Musical Director from Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs.
