The Queen's Company presents The Accidental Activist, written and performed by Kathryn Blume, directed by Michaela Hall, with live music composed and performed by Eliza Ladd. Blume, co-founder of the Lysistrata Project, brings to the stage the story of her astonishing inability to save the world. Part fact, part fantasy, part soy-chai-latte-fueled madness, this irreverent and irrepressible performance imagines the ways in which one woman might make a difference on a planet that couldn't care less. Laced with self-deprecating wit, impossibly optimistic socio-political observations, and deft sketches of determined, defiant women from around the world, Blume's solo work is an on-going search for a good reason to get out of bed.
The Accidental Activist runs in rep with The Queen's Company's production of Aphra Behn's The Lucky Chance running on the days Activist is not (and Sunday nights).
