Cheers to you, Jenny! (International Women's Day Festival)
  • London Fringe

What do Mother Teresa, Napoleon and Hitler have in common? Well, they all have what Hedda Gabler wants most of all. Courage. Courage to be yourself. In this original new work, "Cheers to you, Jenny!" we meet Hedda Gabler as she's just become a mum. A mum that is bored. In this modern adaption of the character, we get to know her as she is arranging the first birthday of her daughter Jenny. A celebration featuring cake, balloons and guns! Hedda Gabler's meeting with motherhood has in no way been what she hoped for. Instead, it's been exactly what she feared. She has followed the Norwegian manual for a harmonic and happy life, so why does she feel like she is rotting from the inside? In a symbiosis of child cry, cake decorations and existential philosophy, we follow Hedda as she reflects upon her own existence. It's dark, comical and unpredictable. Just like Hedda herself. Indigo Arts Collective is celebrating International Women's Day with a festival of original new work written and performed by women from across the country and around the globe. From thoughtful and funny to provocative and experimental, there's truly something for everyone. Come celebrate women's stories with us! Latecomers may not be admitted. Please arrive in good time for the start. Under 18s are not permitted into the theatre for this performance. No re-admittance once the performance has commenced. Refunds and exchanges are not available.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
