Caroline Horton & Co and China Plate present
All of Me
Commissioned by Harlow Playhouse, Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Theatr Iolo
Supported by the MA Dramatic Writing Lab at Drama Centre London at Central Saint Martins and macbirmingham
Created in conversation with Birmingham and Solihull mental health trust.
The show formerly known as All Of Me does not yet feel in a position to give itself a title.
A woman in Folkestone called it a theatre poem, which it liked.
We’re holding on for the possibility of future splendour.
Thank you for your patience.
All of me is supported using public funds from The National Lottery through Arts Council England.
“I thought the performance itself was startling… It felt very full of life - complex, full of desires, funny and upsetting.”
Allegra Galvin, Artistic Director - Quarterhouse Folkestone
“I loved seeing the exploration of the darkness that exists within all of us, and how we try to keep a lid on it. And the expectations for women to behave a certain way, versus who we really are and how we really feel.”
Helen Goalen, Co-Artistic Director - Rashdash
“The piece is particularly exciting as it represents a real departure for Caroline in terms of her process and presentation and it was thrilling to see the beginnings of what I know will be a dark, powerful and witty piece of work.”
Tessa Walker, Associate Director - Birmingham Repertory Theatre
“I found it haunting and beautiful, fun and very sad all at the same time. It spoke to me I think, and I felt like it captured something honest and things generally unsaid that I think a lot of women would relate too.”
Bethany Haynes, Producer - Battersea Arts Centre
