In London’s (Off) West End 2019: Conversations with Ed by Exactly Different Theatre and Mind Out Theatre
LONDON – “We are just a cluster of stardust particles that have formed for a brief amount of time before we dissipate into something else.”
Co-produced by Exactly Different Theatre and Mind Out Theatre, and directed by Evangeline Osbon, Conversations with Ed follows nature lover Ellie and lifestyle guru, Ed, who have been friends for a long time. When Ellie meets down-to-earth Zahara, things change. Mercury is well and truly in retrograde as Ellie battles through the clusterf*** that is life. A play seeping with jealousy, control and power, Pickup’s debut play explores every kind of relationship. Relationship with food, romantic relationships and relationship with self.
Writer and actor Meg Pickup began writing and performing spoken word poetry, and had her work selected to be part of the MA Acting final performance at Arts 2 Educational Schools London. Exactly Different Theatre is her first theatre company, and she has expressed her commitment to creating female-led work that destigmatises mental health, and presents the nuances and complexities of the human condition.
Conversations with Ed plays from 16th to 20th July 2019 at The Bread and Roses, Clapham. Tickets available here
