joue le genre returns to Edinburgh Fringe Festival after two years with their new work, What Goes On In Front Of Closed Doors.
Hundreds of miles underground, a young woman is searching through a room full of old cassettes. Playing tape after tape she gradually pieces together Molly Brentwood’s story through the ordinary, forgotten moments. The unremarkable moments that brought about a remarkable turn in Molly’s life. At just nineteen years old, following the death of her mother, with deteriorating mental health, and without a network of support, Molly finds herself homeless.
What Goes On In Front Of Closed Doors is the culmination of eighteen months of research by writer/ performer Emma Bentley. Having spent a year volunteering for homeless charity St Mungo’s, time on a writing placement at Cardboard Citizens, and with advice from young people’s charity New Horizons, this show explores how everyone is just a few steps away from homelessness.
From the team behind the 2015 Edinburgh success To She or Not to She, joue le genre return to the Festival Fringe working with Calum Finlay, who is making his director/ writer debut.
What Goes On In Front Of Closed Doors plays The Pleasance as part of Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 2 – 28 August. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
