Saturday 2nd March 2019 - MARIA FERGUSON : ESSEX GIRL - at The Three Horseshoes, Hernhill

8:30
Free Event
Kirsty is a sixteen-year-old girl growing up in 00s Brentwood. She likes WKD, Elton John, Pie and Mash and Charlie Red body spray. She’s on a quest to win Sexy Ricky’s heart and pass her GCSEs. She also has a secret to tell you. One she can’t tell anyone else. Follow Kirsty’s story through the house parties and Irish pubs of Essex. From West Ham matches to choir practice, pre-drinks to registration, she will tell you what it’s really like to be an Essex Girl. Essex Girl is the second show from award-winning theatre maker and real-life Essex Girl, Maria Ferguson (Fat Girls Don’t Dance). This show is a monologue about growing up surrounded by expectation, of inappropriate relationships, female friendship, secrets, desires and alcopops. It questions how the Essex Girl stereotype influences young girls, what they want, what they think they deserve, and how they are treated. Wonderfully funny and ultimately hard-hitting it will resonate with a wide audience, particularly millenials, or anyone who has got too drunk at a house party.

INN CROWD is a unique arts project, with the goal of supporting rural pubs to host spoken word-inspired live performances. Our project is mainly based in the South and South East of England, but is now being piloted in selected areas nationwide. We coordinate and collaborate with some of the UK’s top artists and performers to provide pubs in rural areas with professional, high-quality, fantastic live entertainment, which in turn helps landlords to attract new customers, widen the experience for their regular punters, and reinforces the pub as a central, vibrant part of community life.
