Description

Amateur dramatics: the unspoken past of many a Fringe performer. From four generations of leading ladies comes one queer Londoner, sharing a story of return and reconciliation – with her history, hometown and love of musical theatre. Step-ball-changing between suburb and city, I, AmDram minds the gap between the identities we assert and the worlds we leave. Developed through Starting Blocks at Camden People's Theatre. The artist is honoured to enjoy the support of the Welwyn Thalians Musical and Dramatic Society (est 1929). 'A rare and instant likeability... startlingly witty' (AYoungerTheatre).

Sardines (4/5 stars) 34 days ago

The Attic is one of the smallest spaces at the Pleasance but often a great place to discover new writing. With a title like I, AmDram, this was not a piece that Sardines could ignore, and I was very glad to have seen it.

Exeunt 38 days ago

At the opening of Hannah Maxwell’s I, AmDram, audience members are presented with a chaotically printed program/songsheet for the show. I particularly enjoyed the care taken to include four different fonts on the title page, and the middle pages printed upside down, in true AmDram style. Small-town Amateur Dramatics is...

To Do List (5/5 stars) 43 days ago

Hannah Maxwell is a comic genius in this tongue in cheek tribute to the misunderstood world of amateur dramatics.Roll out the barrel for this painfully funny autobiography and cringe-tastic story of am-dram with the Welwyn Thalians Musical and Dramatic Society. Am-dram is crucial to many lives outside of big cities,...
