Diane Herbert’s debut play Angels, premiering next week at VAULT Festival, is based on the real-life experiences of London strippers. The cast have been dancing their way through rehearsals. Take a sneaky-peek at our photo gallery – and then get booking!
Is stripping still worth it? Austerity, free porn and “cashless society”… Because of these and other factors, the golden age of the strip club is long gone, but women keep auditioning with dreams of paying mortgages, supporting their families and pursuing their artistic careers. And those who stay are working harder than ever. Angels takes place on a typical night in the life of three strippers in London and imagines a future that’s already fast approaching.
Angels, the debut play by former stripper Diane Herbert, is based on countless true events from the lives of table dancers. The premiere production at VAULT Festival stars Yuliya Edgley, Laura Morris and Valerie Isaiah Sadoh, directed by Beverly Andrews and produced by She’s Diverse, which is dedicated to creating and developing high-quality, female-centric work.
As part of this year’s VAULT Festival, Angels runs at Cavern – The Vaults, Leake Street, London SE1 7NN from 19 to 23 February 2020, with evening performances (60 minutes) at 9.20pm and Saturday matinee at 4.50pm. Tickets from £14. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
