Maybe I'm not talented enough to open that door. - A play joining Brighton/Camden Fringe.

Help US Get "The WAITING ROOM" TO Brighton and  camden fringe

A short summary

A girl called Lemon is looking for her lover Cactus. She realises that Cactus has left her and is on the other side of the door. Lemon tries to talk to Cactus, she desperately wants him back. But he ignores her.This play explores the theory of attachment types, particularly an anxious attachment type, and is an eccentric, surreal play, but very funny, touching and easy to understand.

We are trying to raise at least another £1000 to bring "The Waiting Room" to the Old Joint Stock in Birmingham and the Camden People's Theatre in London as part of the Camden Fringe.

And there are rewards available, of course!

The story

From Moon KIm: "I’m a theatre maker who graduated from East 15 acting school last year. And this year, I am bringing my debut play "The Waiting Room" to Brighton, Birmingham and London. This play looks at attachment theory, particularly the anxious type. I wrote this play based on my own experience. When I didn't know about attachment theory, I used to ask other people about my relationship. And I had a really hard time finding out what the real problem was. Attachment theory provides a framework for understanding yourself and your interactions with others. I hope this play can help young people in the early stages of their romantic relationships to recognise their emotional journeys and cultivate satisfying relationships with others.I need your help to tell this story. We still need to raise at least another £1000 to bring the play to Birmingham and the Camden Fringe.I'm grateful for any amount you can donate. If you can't make a financial contribution, that's fine too! Please consider sharing this campaign with your networks, family and friends."
