WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY HARRIET GANDY
DIRECTED AND CHOREOGRAPHED BY ANTONIA DRAPER
Desmond lives to perform cabaret. Wilbert creates posies from wildflowers. Who shall wear the crown tonight?

On the edge of a breakdown, Wilbert decides to confront the not-so-well-kept secret of his shadow self and provocative cabaret artist: Destructive Desmond. This darkly absurd tale encapsulates the emergence of the authentic self-questioning what is real and what is simply a performance.

Inspired by the character in WH Auden’s The Dog Beneath the Skin. This one-person show is edgy in nature, blessed with fervent choreography, excavating layers of raw emotional intelligence throughout.
