Melbourne Fringe Best Comedy Award Winner Premieres New Solo Show Before it Heads to Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2021
“Has me thinking of Lucille Ball...” - Stage Whispers
New Hampshire Theatre Project is delighted to open our 2021 MainStage Season on Thanksgiving weekend with the first of three SoloStage works, The Adventures of Sleepyhead by Gemma Soldati. Sleepyhead is the dreamer of dreams. The walking-talking nap. A snoozer and a muser. Children and adults alike will delight in this adventure to the heart of dreamland as Sleepyhead fends off the primordial urge to Zzzz...This family show takes audiences on a journey to discover where dreams come from and where they go.
"After Covid cancelled our tour, I, like most artists around the world, dug down deep to weather the storm. I had been slated to bring Sleepyhead to premier at Edinburgh Fringe Festival summer 2020 but that too had been cancelled. I imagined it would be at least another year before I began working again. I couldn't be more excited and grateful to be premiering the show here in my home state whilst also sharing it with audiences nationally and abroad.” Gemma Soldati
The Adventure of Sleepyhead opens on Friday, November 27 at 7PM for both in-person and online audiences. Covid-safe shows are performed live (with social distancing) and streamed live on Friday and Saturday at 7pm, and Sunday at 2pm.
Want to get behind the scenes and watch a SoloStage show develop?
SoloStage is a new six-month commissioning program in which three artists will develop solo shows through a series of workshops, open rehearsals and work-in-progress performances. Individuals can support the creation of the SoloStage plays by becoming an artist Patron. At a level of $25, $50 and $100 Patrons get behind-the-scenes access to the creation of the work. Additional perks of patronage include blog updates, access to Open Rehearsals and tickets to the performances.
