“A joyful delve into one woman’s life, celebrating the successes, the heartbreak, and everything in between. The Plays the Thing
Little Boxes follows actor Joann Condon (Little Britain) as she explores the boxes she has found herself in through out life. The hopes and dreams of a child, the frustrations of an acting career, the tensions of parenthood, the grief in losing loved ones, the fear of being… herself.
Described as “funny, touching and at times heartbreaking,” by London Pub Theatres, Joann uses personal anecdotes to highlight assumptions and judgements made about her based-on looks, age, gender and background. These are common experiences most of us can relate to.
“It's natural for people in our lives to want to force us into nice little boxes,” says Condon, “but the scary thing is, after a period of time, you end up putting yourself in that same box.
