What is it?
Following a highly-acclaimed Edinburgh run last year, comedienne and raconteur Laura Mugridge has a new theatre show Running On Air. She will be performing for just five audience members at a time in a vintage, yellow VW campervan called ‘Joni’.
In this intimate show, Laura takes the audience on a journey from Lands End to Edinburgh, sharing her experience of marriage, camping and life on the road. With her own brand of quirky and charming comedy, Laura describes a journey that involves fell running and a performance in front of three kestrels on a mountaintop: a joyful investigation into the beauty and complexity of domestic life.
Laura Mugridge is a comedian, storyteller and improviser who has been performing on the London and Brighton circuit for four years. She recently performed in Stuff and Nonsense’s Three Little Pigs (The Albany, Lyric Hammersmith) and is co-creating the company’s 2011 Christmas show – The Hare and the Tortoise.
Laura Mugridge’s show has been created in collaboration with her husband Tom Frankland, one third of The Frequency D’ici – the team behind Fringe First Award winning Paperweight. The development of Running On Air was supported by the Camden People’s Theatre, and the upcoming tour is produced by Ric Watts.
