DESCRIPTION

As part of LGBT HISTORY MONTH & The B Right On LGBT Community Festival

Following recent performances in Brighton, which delighted audiences and critics alike, TWINKLE now plays for one night only at the B RIGHT ON Festival.

Jason Sutton (aka Miss Jason) stars in Philip Meeks's one man play: TWINKLE.

"This is moving theatre that firmly establishes Sutton as a star who completely understands theatrical tradition.” Stephen Vowles, Boyz

Jason takes a dramatic departure from his fabulous guise as one of Brighton and London's leading lights on the cabaret circuit to play the tragi-comic figure of Harold Thropp. Harold, a veteran pantomime dame, reflects on his life in the blaze of the footlights, which has dimmed over the years as the world's recognition of star quality has turned on its head. Harold's woes at being given a dressing room in the basement spark a chain of incredible memories and events that will ensure Harold is never forgotten.

TWINKLE promises to make audiences cry with laughter and shed some tears of sadness as Harold's hilarious anecdotes and bitchy one-liners unmask a dame in her descent with one last punchline to deliver.

Following the performance, Jason Sutton and director Allan Cardew will discuss the play and will be happy to answer questions from the audience..

"Sutton is a born trouper and Meeks a skilled writer of pathos, mood and captivating dialogue that tugs at the heartstrings and with Sutton performing in such a scintillating manner this play will move you to tears of pleasure.” Stephen Vowles, Boyz

The B Right On LGBT Community Festival celebrates LGBT History Month, is organised by the Volunteers of the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum and takes place at the Phil Starr Pavilion - a multi functional, fully accessible, heated performance, conference and community space with a licensed bar which is located on Victoria Gardens, Brighton, BN1 1WN.
