About the Show
Olivier Award nominee Maimuna Memon's musical exploration of mental health.
Ria is working to complete her band's new album, which charts the story of the start & end of a recent relationship. But the more songs that are written, the more Ria is drawn back to the darkness of her troubled past, until the lines between reality and fantasy are blurred.
From a multi-award-winning run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 'Manic Street Creature' now transfers to the Southwark Playhouse.
Olivier Award nominee Maimuna Memon ('Standing at the Sky’s Edge') writes & stars in this musical, which is recommended for ages 12+.
“This is a psychologically gruelling 75 minutes witnessing the pain of mental illness, but it's offset by pleasing songs, some humour and a relatable protagonist. And if you’re a person who uses the word ‘relatable’ on a regular basis, it’s almost certainly a show for you.”
"A compelling tale of love and trauma. This thought-provoking piece of gig theatre is exactly what London needs right now, and just to hear Memon’s magnificent voice is worth every penny – she is one to watch!"
