Molly Roberts is a freelance Actress, theatre Producer and Artistic Director of new writing company Poleroid Theatre, and is thrilled to be working with nabokov for the first time! Over the last two years she has worked as an actress in Theatre and Television (BBC/Channel 4). She has also produced numerous productions which strive to craft the contemporary image of emerging artists, at venues including Theatre503, Old Red Lion, White Bear, Etcetera, Tristan Bates & Last Refuge. She also runs WRITE IT: MIC IT a regular open "write night" at The Hackney Attic and Castle Hotel, Manchester which is dedicated to lovers of the young, quirky, new writing arts scene in the UK and allows emerging artists to show their work and bring their new writing to the stage. Molly has been given the exciting task of searching for the most dynamic, interesting and entertaining emerging and well-known talent in London to add to the upcoming nabokov Arts Club line-up. Over the last month she has been inundated with applications from writers, comedians, sketch groups and musicians who were keen to take part in the event. But despite the very high standard, places were limited and after a lot of thought & meetings, she's programmed a pick of the best!
The bill ranges from established spoken word artists Sabrina Mahfouz and Rachel Parris, to more underground, emerging performers Tara Hodge and Tom Gill. We also have comedy from Matt Lacey, best known for his youtube sensation "Gap Yah", and new talent from up-and-coming sketch sensation Omar & Lee. There’ll also be a brand new work by playwright Luke Barnes, the hilarious Lolly Jones and music from the wonderful Harriet Starling.
Come and say hello to Molly in the Pit Space where she will also be introducing all the acts performing, and get ready for a night of serious entertainment..!
