The Tale of Lady Stardust

Spotlight Outstanding Female Performance award for Nadia Clifford as ‘Rachel’. Commendation for acting for Thomas Benedict Chambers as ‘Gary’ at the NSDF Edinburgh Emerging Talent Awards, 2009.

Ziggy & Gary wait patiently for the day of judgement in a dingy tower block in south London. Finally, today, there’s someone at the door…a cautionary tale of a box, a believer, a dubious angel and David Bowie.

The Canal Café Theatre, London / Underbelly, Edinburgh / The Alma Tavern, Bristol. Director: Hal Chambers.

“Though the play deals with weighty material the portrayal of the characters draws out dark strands of comedy…powerful and provocative…This production looks set to become another success for young playwright Bea Roberts”

Ed Fest Mag

“It’s a situation comedy that starts off slowly and builds continually throughout towards a climatic and disturbing finale…the writing is smartly clever and comedy well timed”

British Theatre Guide

“Go and see this play. Cleverly written and very well performed I guarantee you won’t see just what’s about to happen”


“Might just be the strangest play at this year’s fringe”
