A solo theatre show with character comedy, stand up and music.
In an old regional theatre, Alfie, a comedian who performed as the male half of a double act re-enters the stage… as Zora, a woman. A charming, funny rollercoaster through show business, gender, spirituality, identity and love. An important statement about gender fluidity and stage fright.
|“Sharp observations on the entertainment industry… Reddin-Clancy is delightful onstage. The List.
“A journey of gender, life and love. Grace…impressively weaving between genders and characters…The quick, sarcastic gags and sharp dialogue was well written and Reddin-Clancy did a brilliant job.” Ed Fest Mag
“The fringe is perfect for performances like Grace…full of fascinating contradictions…about the drag and theatre industries.” Three Weeks
“The strength of this show is Katie’s razor sharp…barbed tongue and her skill as a comedian. Katie is a skilled performer with fantastic delivery – I look forward to seeing her shine.” One4Review
“A barn storming whirlwind performance… Tremendous hour of thought-provoking fun.” GScene.
“Beautiful…haunting and poetic…Deliciously observed character comedy. Mesmerising and witty piece of comedy theatre. Reddin-Clancy’s performance is powerful, intelligent and funny. Go see this show for laughs and food for thought.” Mumble Theatre
The enigma that is Grace. Grace is not comedy, not cabaret, not theatre, it is all…in the body of one actor….in a gender-bending, time-melding, quick-stepping menagerie of theatrical homage. Katie Reddin-Clancy, a performer to be reckoned with, the kind of individual you couldn’t pin down if you tried. Grace plays with artifice…like a magician that reveals their tricks…. laying the cards of the gender fluidity conversation clearly on the table. When she sings, it is wonderful… the flamboyance. Like Katie’s performance, it is indefinable, of infinite variety. Come one, come all, come down and embrace the carnivalesque world of this unique performer’s mind. The Empty Blog Space
