BIRD MOUTH COLLECTIVE PRESENTS A DOUBLE BILL AT CAMDEN FRINGE
The Apartments, by Verity Rowsell:
What happens to all the dreams that never come to be? Do they simply drift away, or do they gather like storm clouds around us?
At Least I Can Dance, by Michelle Hanks: A light in a hat box, a rucksack, a hand bag, surreal visitations by dreams, Victorian doctors, a hypercritical sexist bastard ex, creme brûlée, applying for benefits, breathing and screaming with your new therapist, mental health, Lorca, Alicante, a Lottie Collins Dance contest, and finding resilience.

The plays mix a surreal, satirical, funny, emotional and poignant punch about relationships,gender inequality, mental health, grief, heartbreak and capitalism within the benefit system.
