If you love comedy, you’re in luck. Juliette Burton’s show When I Grow Up was one of the big hits on the Edinburgh Fringe this year – and on Friday 3 January, she’s bringing the show to St Luke’s! Juliette – acclaimed comedy actress, writer and performer – will be taking When I Grow Up on tour across Britain and Australia in 2014. However, she’s very kindly agreed to give the people of West Holloway an advanced preview of the show, in aid of the St Luke’s Nightshelter (you can read more about that here: http://www.saintlukeschurch.org.uk/2013/12/22/st-lukes-nightshelter-prepares-to-open-its-doors/ ).
Does growing up mean letting go? As a child Juliette wanted to be many things. The world was full of possibilities – it was an exciting place to live, a place where dreams came true. But then life got in the way… Did Juliette have it right when she was a kid? Did she know what she was born to be before she grew up?
In this multi-media docu-comedy, Juliette (of award-winning duo Mace & Burton) realises her childhood ambitions. Artist, farmer, ballerina, baker, princess, pop star, cartoon, Muppet… she’s living the dream – every dream she ever had! In doing so, she explores the question: is what we do who we are? And does growing up mean letting go of your dreams?
All the money raised from this entertaining and heartwarming show will go to our Nightshelter appeal, so round up your friends for a great evening of comedy on Friday 3 January, at 7pm. Tickets cost £10 (£5 concessions). The show is suitable for children aged eight and over (there are a handful of swear words).
