Here’s Connie (Carrie Anne Wilde)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

Self-written, one woman play ‘Here’s Connie’ is a brave, poignant and deeply compelling piece of theatre. This is the story of a woman desperately trying to find her way in a life that has dealt her a bad hand, though often succumbing to the ever tempting hedonistic escapism of one night stands, alcohol and pounding nightclubs. Waking up hung-over one morning, Connie’s piecing together of memories from the night before leads her to evaluate the state of her life and the people in it. Most significant about the piece is its unflinching handling of uncomfortable societal truths, such as the problem of technology obsessed youth, and porn’s brutal eradication of romance. Graphic, explicit, truly evocative; there is something in this performance that will speak to everyone.
