In A Hoop
Written by Darren Yorke.
Directed by Sarah Bradley.
Starring Kate Finegan.
A beautiful, brave and boisterous production that pushes the boundaries of a ‘One Woman Show’ into the realms of a ‘One Woman Circus’.
Kitty (played by Kate Finnegan) presents herself at a vertigo-inducing heights, and in her element. She twists and contorts, dizzies and dazzles. She swoops and she soars. She rises and falls. She’s sure of herself – apparently.
IN A HOOP. is a wonderfully funny and at times vulnerable play that receives its audience with intimacy, and shares in the tone of ‘We’re All Friends Here’.
It’s about Heart. It’s about Soul. It’s about spectacle. It’s about Purpose.
Unfiltered, Kitty and is unabashed in voicing her cogitation, as she grapples at a juncture in her life.
“Why does it always seem that all your friends – all your peers – know exactly what they’re doing with their life?” – Kitty
In tracing her steps, she gathers her bearings. In grounding herself, she contemplates her advance. She picks herself up; she knocks herself down. She weighs the dream against the fear; the confidence against the doubt; the choices made against the hypotheticals; the ideal against the reality. She’s ‘in a hoop’, but aren’t we all?!
She casts a wide net, and she strikes an accord.
She’s one night only, and she’s worth the ticket!
