Showcase for Emerging Writers and Performers to Present Original Work at London's Crazy Coqs
17 Feb 2014
An "emerging artists" season to showcase the work of emerging British-based writers and performers presenting original work is to be staged at London's Crazy Coqs on three nights in March, April and June.
Presented by Simon Greiff for SimG Productions, in association with The Crazy Coqs, each evening will introduce a new talent from the world of songwriting and musical theatre writing.
The first evening will be held March 15. It will introduce songwriter Garry Lake, and the writing team of Rob Archibald and Verity Quade. Lake is the writer behind the satirical show Jest End. His most recent musical project Like Me was seen in New York. Archibald and Quade have written musicals Fidget Bones’ Journal and Thirtysomething, and their "songs of" album scrapbook features many West End performers. The evening will also feature guest singers to be announced.
Further artists lined up for later in season include Dan Looney, Neeve (aka Niamh Perry), Jonathan Eio, Christopher J Orton, Richard Beadle and Ella Grace. There will be further dates on April 26 and June 7.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
