Details

by Maimuna Memon

There's this unspoken thing right? I guess this resistance to admitting that someone else's trauma can be traumatising.

Ria is working with her band to complete a new album – songs charting the rise and fall of a recent relationship. But the more Ria progresses, the more she's drawn back to the darkness of her troubled past, until we're not sure where memory ends and reality begins.

Manic Street Creature is a fresh and thrilling take on a modern love story from Olivier nominee Maimuna Memon (Standing at the Sky's Edge). Love, lust, and late nights collide in a musical rollercoaster, taking the audience through the euphoria and distress of two people dealing with their own and each other's mental health.

From its multi-award winning run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2022, including The Scotsman Fringe First, the Mental Health Fringe Award and The Stage Edinburgh Award, this edition of Manic Street Creature is published to coincide with its Southwark Playhouse Borough run in October 2023.
