A compelling tale of one evening told from two different viewpoints, Walk of Shame is the latest production from Glass Half Full Theatre. At the start of Christmas party season, it brings the story of Alice and Liam to the White Bear Theatre for a limited run from 11 to 15 December 2018, following current political hit An Honourable Man. If you don’t want to take your own walk of shame, it’s time to get booking!
Walk of Shame is co-written by Amelia Marshall Lovsey and Stephanie Silver, who also plays Alice. It began life as a one-person piece , written by Lovsey and telling Alice’s story, but after Silver directed a performance at new writing event Actor Awareness, she was moved to collaborate with Lovsey to add Liam’s side of events.
For Liam, it’s a night of glory
For Alice, it’s a walk of shame
It’s a tale that will surprise audiences and turn stereotypes on their heads, as there is more to the characters than it may first appear.
In addition to co-writing Walk of Shame and starring as Alice, Silver is also the Artistic Director of Glass Half Full Theatre. She previously appeared in productions including C’est La Via, #StrongNotSkinny and The Monologues of a Tired Nurse.
Calum Speed stars opposite Silver, playing Liam, and returning to the White Bear Theatre where he previously appeared in Eight and Chummy. His previous credits include Three Wise Monkeys at the Bush Theatre and Orlando Furioso for Read Not Dead at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
Michelle Payne, who previously directed The German Girls at the Camden Fringe, Brittle Britain at Wandsworth Arts Fringe and Power at Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, directs.
An Honourable Man, which precedes Walk of Shame at the White Bear Theatre, is a political comedy. Written by Michael McManus, it follows Labour MP Joe Newman who, when Momentum try to oust him, takes drastic action.
