No One Likes Us - Camden Fringe 2019
Hen and Chickens
Spider, a proud South London Millwall fan diagnosed with a serious illness, is sent an East European nurse, Jolana, to care for him. As their relationship develops, he opens up about his past life, his dreams and his fears, taking the audience on an emotional rollercoaster.Spider, superbly played by award winning actor Paul Dewdney (Best Actor, Monaco Film Festival 2018), has the audience recoiling, laughing and crying in equal measure. Nurse Jolana (the excellent Jennifer Evans) needs the job but will her instinct to care be sufficient to overcome Spider's vitriol?Audience feedback: "The bar resembled a recovery room after the show""Bastard play made me cry in front of my new girlfriend." "Best thing I've seen anywhere in over a year." "I hated him so much at first I was ready to walk out but by the end I wanted to hug him." No One Likes Us explores how an unequal society sows the seeds of prejudice revealing the deep universal humanity which binds all of us together.
