All profits going from the event will go towards Macmillan Cancer Support and The Royal Theatrical Fund.

In December 2020, Australian-born Performer Lucinda Shaw passed away aged just 36, following a two year battle with cancer. Lucinda trained at Brent Street Studios in Sydney, where she began her career in musical theatre. Her first principal role was playing The Lady of the Lake in Monty Python's Spamalot in Melbourne, for which she was nominated for a Helpman Award. After relocating to the UK, she quickly established herself as a talent to watch, with credits including Violet in It's A Wonderful Life at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich, The Enchantress in Sleeping Beauty at the Birmingham Hippodrome and Mazeppa in Gypsy at Leicester Curve. Her West End debut came playing the Diva in Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the Palace Theatre, and she was subsequently seen in The Bodyguard, From Here to Eternity and Gypsy (Chichester Festival production). Lucinda travelled the UK, Europe and International Venues with tours of Cats, We Will Rock You and Shrek. She was involved in workshops for Groundhog Day and Wonder.Land at The National Theatre and appeared in the film version of London Road, both directed by Rufus Norris. Other UK credits included playing Tracy in the UK premiere of The Life at Southwark Playhouse.

Review: BUTCHERED, VAULT Festival Photo
There are some shows that fit perfectly within the walls of The Vaults. Magic is made when old bricks and humidity meet the right production. Expial Atrocious’ Butchered is one of those that feel at home enveloped by the horrid architecture and the rumblings of Waterloo Station. The love child of Sweeney Todd and Hannibal, it’s a grim look at life and death in a dog-eat-dog world.

Review: THE LAMB DISAGREES, VAULT Festival Photo
It’s equally funny and stimulating, opening up a broader conversation about people’s use of foreign cultures and experiences to further their own goals. Wang only gives a taste of the issue in The Lamb Disagrees, but we hope her budding career will explore the subject in more detail.

Review: FOR A BRIEF MOMENT AND NEVER AGAIN SINCE, VAULT Festival Photo
It’s a missed opportunity to explore young parenthood and the effects of thoughtless actions on a couple.
