Annie Siddon’s autobiographical show about chronic loneliness is coming to Soho Theatre from 13 February 2017.
The show which has been billed as “funny, brutal and poignant”, chronicles the time in her life when she was a single mum living in Twickenham, the most married place in London, and her gauche attempts to fit in.
Partly through performance and partly through surreal film, the show had a successful run at Summerhall as part of the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, How
Not To Live in Surburbia Features Siddon’s autobiographical writing combined with film made by Richard DeDominici, whose The Redux Project was broadcast on BBC as part of the recently broadcast Live From Television Centre.
Annie Siddons said, “I’m an inherently gregarious person. I’m not the person that you would think would be lonely. But I became pathologically lonely, and it affected me really deeply, changed my personality and my outlook. It became impossible for me not to talk about it. It became very dangerous for me.”
Not To Live In Surburbia is directed by Justin Audibert and runs at Soho Theatre from 13-18 February 2017 and does contain scenes of a sexual nature and scenes that some may find disturbing.
