After a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer, Doctor Who play Who are You Supposed to Be? is coming to London for a run of three shows:
Who Are You Supposed To Be? is a light-hearted comedy from Australian writer, Keith Gow, workshopped by the London team of Cameron K McEwan, Emrys Matthews and Jennifer Lusk.
Founded in the team’s real experiences of being fans/geeks, the play explores both the
passion and excitement of being a fan/geek as well as its more problematic elements. Gow
and Lusk actually met at the Melbourne preview screening of Serenity, a film which has a
mention in the play. Meanwhile, McEwan, who runs the popular Doctor Who fan website
Blogtor Who, with fellow blogger and reviewer, Matthews, provided much of the additional
material for the script.
The characters of Gene (McEwan) and Ash (Lusk) are wonderfully flawed, and their
particular foibles allow the play to examine notions of masculinity, feminism, mental disorder,
the perils of social media relationships and the fundamentals of human interaction. All under
the playful banner of Doctor Who and Star Wars fandoms!
The play will be shown at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden on three different days:
- Sunday 10th November at 8.30pm
- Friday 15th November at 9.30pm
- Sunday 17th November at 8.30pm
