Did you know your neighbour’s mum’s got chlamydia? Bethany Lewis, TV psychic extraordinaire, said so. Beth’s enjoying her fame – but the spirits have got other plans. Big plans. Beth starts to get visions of dark government secrets, making her a threat to the men in power. Ssspssshhwhh… Oh, hear that? The Pope’s an escort. An adult comedy with puppets.
The Prophetic Visions of Bethany Lewis follows Beth on her journey from ordinary woman to celebrity psychic – and religious leader. But while she is loved by many, Beth’s meteoric rise draws the attention of the sinister powers that be. She’s a working-class woman with funny ideas about ‘equality’ – and that makes her a threat. It’s one modern day prophetess against a corrupt government. Who will win?
The Prophetic Visions of Bethany Lewis is written by Daniel Pool and directed by Cat Robey with puppetry direction from Mike Hutcherson. It stars Katie Wells, Luke Dunford and Emma Lundegaard. It is produced by the award-winning Laura Elmes Productions.
The Prophetic Visions of Bethany Lewis plays Underbelly Cowgate from 3 – 27 August 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
