Nottingham Play Hits Edinburgh Fringe HR'd!

'Take the worst cabaret acts you've ever seen in your life, a woman who works in HR and a boss who redefines bitchy' and you've got the beginning of HR'd Day's Night, a comedy created by and starring Nottingham writer James 'Lloydie' Lloyd which will be showing at the Laughing Horse @ The Counting House at this year's Edinburgh Fringe. The play, which premiered at Nottingham Arts Theatre last year, also stars Catherine Clarke and Marilyn Ann Bird who are members of Nottingham's MissImp improvised comedy troupe along with Lloydie. The story revolves around Trish, HR wage slave by day and compere of a spectacularly awful cabaret club by night. "We're very excited," says Lloydie, "it's such a fun piece about an evil boss and office scandal mixed with bitching and bad cabaret, we can't wait to take it to Edinburgh."
Directed by Martin Berry, whose West End credits include Joesph and Blood Brothers, the show will run for eight days from 13th-20th August. Confidentially, we wish HR'd Day's Night all the best in Edinburgh and if the show does well we could see it return to do another run back home at a theatre in Nottingham.

You can also see Lloydie and other members of the cast perform improv comedy with MissImp at Nottingham's Glee on the second Wednesday of every month and on the last Friday of every month at The Arts Organisation in Nottingham
