Helen is currently understudying on the new musical ‘Pippi Longstocking’ at the Royal and Derngate, Northampton. An all-singing, all-dancing new version of Astrid Lindgren’s classic stories, this swashbuckling adventure is playing until 31st December 2019 – catch it while you can!
After a successful UK tour, Helen’s one-woman show ‘Loop’ came to a close this week. Some of the incredible feedback from audience members has included:
“The use of a loop station was brilliant and told a powerful story about mental health & loneliness that I won’t soon forget. I was holding back tears by the end!”
[A] deceptively simple story woven and looped back on itself with such care and attention. Properly uplifting look into loneliness but also self care. @ryan_leder is an impeccable storyteller and @helencrevel’s performance was beautiful.”
“A show for our times; about loneliness. Theatre that’s innovative, very well-performed, and really has something to say.”
After an incredible week of research and development at Shop Front Theatre Coventry for Loop, Helen performed an extract from the show last weekend at Derby Theatre in a scratch performance hosted by In Good Company and Notnow Collective.
Feedback from that sharing included:
“I found myself sucked into an immersive world of aural fantasticness!”
“My kids would have enjoy this – my Mum would have also loved it”
This weekend, Helen will be participating in 14/48 – the world’s quickest theatre festival! – at the Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton. It’s a speed festival where 14 world-premiere short plays are created over the course of two days, or 48 hours – with a team of directors, writers, actors and designers – many of whom will never have met!
At the end of this month, Helen will be appearing in ‘Carword’ at the Core, Corby, an evening of five exciting new short plays by Core Playwrights Ensemble – all set within the confines of a car. You can get your tickets on the Core website.
For the next two weeks, Helen will be working with Carbon Theatre on Sea Girl – a brand new, multi-sensory show for young audiences, inspired by young women sailing around the world including Tania Aebi and Laura Dekker. Helen plays Naomi, a young girl who is inspired by these journeys and begins to imagine her own. She can’t wait!
Last month, Helen’s work of several months – working with the local community, devising, writing and rehearsing – culminated in a sold-out performance at the Royal & Derngate Theatre in Northampton. The play was described as “an incredible journey” and “an amazingly dynamic achievement” that “deserves to…seen a lot more” (The Nenequirer). We’ll keep you posted!
