Winner Best New Play, Brighton Fringe 2012

The one-woman play centres around Betsy who, after being expelled from St Mary’s Home for Penitent Women for her brazen irreverence, is thrust into an unknown world where she discovers she can still make a living from her body. Soon she becomes confidant and concubine to local dignitary George Bintshaft.  But, after subsequently bearing a child, she finds herself in grave danger.

Something Underground Theatre Company, who in 2012 Won the Best New Play Award at The Brighton Fringe have created another visceral, shocking and tender play blending the brutality of street life with the deep instinctual tenderness of a maternal woman on the edge.

 Something Underground Theatre have been racking up the Brighton Fringe Awards lately, with Best New play in 2012, Best Male Performer in 2013, Best New Play shortlist 2013, Best Female Performer nomination 2013, and Best Male Performer nomination 2007.
