the fan & THE STAR & the star & THE FAN To Run On Camden Fringe From August 8
Stars need fans and fans need stars - this symbiotic relationship usually plays out with neither two meeting.
But award-winning playwright Jan Harris has set two characters on a collision course that gives "the odd couple" a whole new meaning!
There's plenty of drama and comedy when the fading star finds herself all out of five-star hotels, and her devious agent has manoeuvred her into the two-up two-down home of Fran, a besotted fan.
With a reversal of fortunes, odd career moves, and some betrayal, this gem of a comedy has an upbeat ending that proves its premise: the Fan needs the Star and the Star needs the Fan.
This play is the perfect vehicle for all those actresses who say there are no leading parts for women of a certain age. Look no further!
Janice Day (The fan)is a talented all-round performer who has won awards for her stand-up comedy.
Together these two ladies bring perfect comic timing and drama to this well-rounded comedy.
Directed by Matthew Gould, who is a dedicated theatre director with a background in many West End musicals; he views the play as a dramatic piece with its themes in musical theatre.
The show runs from August 8 to 13, 7pm every night at RADA's John Gielgud theatre, Malet Street London WC1E 7JN Box Office 020 79084800
