89 years. 172 different productions. I am the first female member of my family to not appear in a Thalians show for a reason other than pregnancy.”
Amateur dramatics. The hidden history of many a performance artist.
From four generations of leading ladies comes one queer Londoner, sharing a story of return and reconciliation with her hometown, cultural inheritance and secret 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.
Supported by Arts Council England. 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).
Hannah Maxwell is a writer, performer, artist and podcaster. Her writing has appeared in the Guardian and the Scotsman. The playtext of I, AmDram was published by Oberon Books in May 2019. She collaborated with international lesbian performance company Split Britches as co-writer on Unexploded Ordnances (La Mama ETC, NY and Barbican Centre, 2018).
