  • About the event

    Vernal Theatre Company are proudly presenting an intoxicating revival of the play, HOT MESS by Ella Hickson, for the Camden Fringe Festival 2017. 


    Twins, Polo and Twitch are celebrating their 25th birthday on a big night out. Born with only one heart between them: Polo is not looking to be loved and Twitch can do nothing but. Join them on their raunchy night out with trips down memory lane, pumping music and plenty of laughs.


    We believe this play can truly resonate with all kinds of people in today's society, especially in the age of social media, pornography and dating apps such as Tinder and Grindr. It is a play about love, lust, connection, relationships and coming of age. 


    The show will be performed at the

    Lion and Unicorn Theatre (Kentish Town, London)

    from 22nd-26th August 2017 - 19:45 


    Directed by Julian Bruton and Kieran Rogers 

    Cast includes Katrina Allen, Timothy Renouf, Natalia Titcomb and Gareth Balai 

    Why should you sponsor?

    We believe this would be a surefire production to sponsor as we have already trialled our ideas to help realise the production successfully. This production is a revival of an existing play and has proved a success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (2010).


    This production will be part of the one of the most prominent arts festivals in London. The theatre is within walking distance of one of the biggest hotspots of tourism in London (Camden), which will attract an eclectic demographic of audience members. 


    We are a team armed with professional training and experience in theatre. We have also assembled a cast of professional actors who have trained and worked extensively in theatre, film and television. 


    By sponsoring this event, you will be supporting and securing the next generation of directors and actors. The future generation of people making theatre, film and televison.
