Harrowing and Ryvita!

Had to include this - just love the colours; the play should be good too!

Do you have that half written novel or great idea on hold? All you need to do is email it to an enthusiastic friend or colleague.

Kim Jackson director had the beginnings of a play he started writing 20 years ago and emailed it to Derby based actor Rebecca Mahon who he had worked with many times.

The result is a powerful, disturbing and witty one woman play which will be premiering at the Buxton Fringe this July.

Tangled Web Productions present NO VIEW FROM THE WINDOW written by Kim Jackson and Rebecca Mahon. Performed by Rebecca and directed by Kim.

Kim directed Rebecca's first venture into writing with the comedy “It's Not Unusual”. This toured to the Buxton Fringe Festival in 2007 as well as Leicester Comedy Festival, The Lichfield Garrick Theatre and various community venues, receiving great reviews.

Rebecca received a nomination for Best Newcomer for this play at the Leicester Comedy Festival. She is currently on our TV screens in the latest commercial campaign for Ryvita: ‘Ladies That Lunch’, taking over from Fern Britton as brand ambassador. She will also be appearing in ‘Doctors’ on the BBC later this year.

No View From The Window is a harrowing story told by a woman who has lived with a dark secret for 25 years. Set in the decaying bathroom of her dead mother’s house, the performance unpacks an unbearable burden. But Louise’s relationships, particularly with her mother, have given her a robust and comic take on life.

This piece was developed with support from the Arts Council Of England. It has also been selected to perform at the 24:7 Festival Manchester from the 26th July-1st August.
