The Cloakroom Attendant - Camden Fringe 2018
Tristan Bates Theatre
I shall share with you the most exciting secret of my profession: the study of human nature!'After successful performances at the Wallace Collection in London, in Copenhagen and in Athens, Dimitra Barla's autobiographical one-woman show The Cloakroom Attendant, directed by Natalie Katsou, comes to the Camden Fringe. Margot, the cloakroom attendant of a national museum, entertains the audience with her daily stories, while exploring the unavoidable dilemma: 'to be or not to be a parent?' With wit and sensitivity, artefacts become alive and visitors take mythical dimensions. Dante's condemned lovers, an unfortunate French queen and an inquisitive boy help Margot balance on a suspended world of imagination, aspirations and self-fulfillment.
