Delirium Theatre

SUMMARY

Delirium Theatre Productions, a brand-new pioneering ensemble theatre company, bombards the Fringe Festival for the first time this summer, performing Arthur Kopit’s (Three-time Tony Award nominee, and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist) first written play, Chamber Music.

Arthur Kopit snatches eight iconic women from their usual historical contexts and institutionalises them in this absurdist comedy masterpiece. Held together in what seems to be an insane asylum and placed under the ubiquitous eye of the doctor, Amelia Earhart, Gertrude Stein, and Constanze Mozart-to name a few- come together to plan for an attack they expect from the men’s ward. Expect hilarity mixed with homicide. Expect questions with no answers. Expect no one to be who they say they are. All fixed notions of identity, gender and sanity are interrogated- or even tortured- in this uncanny world in which both the characters, and the audience, are embroiled. Do not expect passive theatre: this is not it.

Delirium Theatre Productions consists of 11 talented students who hail from the flagship undergraduate Drama course at the University of East Anglia. With their fresh and experimental approach to ensemble theatre, the company aims to push the boundaries of theatre to the edge, to the Fringe.

Admission: £7.50(£5.50)
