E Elia: Body(s)

Book this event online or email the box office at boxoffice@creativefolkestone.org.uk

A first, professionally staged reading of Body(s), collaboratively produced and directed by Jessica Hynes (Spaced, The Royle Family, Years and Years), and written by E Elia (We Go to the Gallery, The Diary of Edward the Hamster 1990-1990).

Body(s) is a viscerally lyrical trilogy of satirical duologues, each a skit on a particular section of the human body.

"Relentlessly abstract even as it describes in detail the loss and regeneration of missing body parts, Body(s) nonetheless aches with human longing. Its characters urge and support one another instead of conflicting, as they are parts of a whole piecing together a story they share. At the end of each of its three scenes we yearn—as do the characters—for something just outside our reach." David Hodges, NPX

E Elia is an acclaimed author and playwright, known for the cult arts satire We Go to the Gallery, which he wrote with his sister Miriam, and the Beckettian rodent nightmare, The Diary of Edward the Hamster 1990-1990.

This rehearsed reading will be performed by professional actors Zoe Aldrich, Alex MacLaren, Oliver Senton and Lucy Trodd. The reading will be followed by a Q&A with the writer and performers chaired by Jessica Hynes.
