10 Days Earlier

This one-man play has lofty ambitions – it tells the story of an amateur scientist who finds out that there is going to be a zombie apocalypse, and recounts the 10 days between his life-shattering discovery and Z-day. Writer/director Lizzie Milton says of the show: “It’s an exploration of loneliness, how actors relate to an audience and the normalisation of tragic events in our lives.”

This comedic performance, revolving around doomed protagonist Harold Grimhold, sees our anti-hero, or just non-hero, struggle to deal with life, whether zombies are on their way or not. Sketch actor and stand-up Andrew Goddard stars.

Chris Neill: Lifetime Achiever

A Fringe regular, Chris arrives in Camden to tell of the year in which his life fell apart. As the comedian explains: “The age of 41, freshly single and weeping like a little girl, it was the worst year of my life.” To add to his bad luck, it was also the year in which he died on stage in front of the prime minister, got himself sued by a multinational bank and played a depressed owl to boot. This tumultuous 12 months forms the basis of this new show – two years on from the Chris-apocalypse – in which he considers how it all went a bit wrong, and how he managed to claw his way back from the brink of ruin to find success again.
