‘At 30, every innocent flirtation becomes a prospect for a shared mortgage application’. Having recently played in New York, Before 30 follows Chris, a Deliveroo driver trying to make his way in the world. His previous struggles with depression and anxiety resurface as he faces the prospect of turning 30. A mortgage, a career, a family, where should we be at 30? This true to home solo show tells an honest story about mental health that any age can relate to. Combining surreal comedy, spoken work and told across 12 chapters, Before 30 transports the audience from the tent that Chris rents in London to the top of Everest on a quest for purpose.

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Flamboyantly gay as early as the 1930s, Quentin Crisp spent decades being beaten up on the streets of London, but stayed resolute to his determination to be himself. Naked Hope depicts Quentin at two phases of his extraordinary life: alone in his Chelsea flat in the 1960s, stoically certain that life and love have passed him by, and thirty years later, giving a performance of his one-man show An Evening with Quentin Crisp in New York. Mark Farrelly's hugely-acclaimed solo play is a glorious, uplifting celebration of the urgent necessity to be your true self.

“Indubitably good news… A perfect prospect for Edinburgh 2019” 
 ★★★★ Mark Lawson, The Guardian 
"Hilarious... A cutting media satire which addresses relevant themes with aplomb"★★★★ Daily Express 
A sell-out show at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe, and listed as a Must-See by The Guardian & Telegraph, Fake News is the story of our time from international journalist turned actor & playwright Osman Baig. A budding journalist lands a dream internship at the country's biggest online news organization. There, he stumbles on an earth-shattering story and - perhaps against better judgement - decides to click publish. There's just one problem: the story is completely untrue. Whatever you think about the news or those who make it, prepare to think again – in this one-man show that will force you to ask if there really is such a thing as bad publicity. 
“A big satirical scoop” Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

Covid -19 - A Statement from Waterloo East Theatre 
The health and safety of visitors to Waterloo East Theatre is our number one priority.  And we have been following the official government guidance regarding Covid-19 carefully. Therefore after the Governments announcement on the 16th March 2020 we decided to make the tough decision to postpone all performances until Autumn 2020, and will review the situation on a day to day basis
Like many Off West End/Fringe venues we receive no funding at all and rely on hires and incoming productions to generate income to keep operating.  Being without any income over this period is going to be a tough call, and don’t want to have to consider closing the doors permanently. So if you feel that you could help in anyway please click on our DONATE page. Thank You for all your support. Please keep safe. And hope to see you all at some point in the future.
Gerald Armin -Executive Producer/Artistic Director
