BY KATIE ARNSTEIN
An award winning light comedy. With shade.
Ever since Katie was cast as the lead in her primary school production of “Santa’s Snowmobile” she believed there was a place for her in show business. Since then named, speaking and full clothed roles have been harder to come by. Winner of Show of the Week and Pleasance Pick of VAULT Festival 2019.
Sexy Lamp is Katie’s “supremely assured” (The Guardian) solo show that brilliantly combines comedy, original songs and storytelling to shed a bright light on how ridiculous the industry can be and why Katie is refusing to stay in the dark.
Part two of the It’s A Girl! Trilogy; comprising Bicycles and Fish, Sexy Lamp and, new in 2020, Sticky Door. Original, covid-scuppered tour (2020, what a year) supported by VAULT Festival, Pleasance Futures, Redbridge Drama Centre and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Content Warning: Contains some misogynistic/sexist language, occasional strong language, mild references to: sexual assault and sexual exploitation, brief mention of animal cruelty
