Pull Your Socks Up Britain! with Lotta Quizeen

The Thelmas are proud to present

“Just leave it all to me. I’m going to sort EVERYTHING out. Sort out this troubled nation like an unruly sock drawer at half-term…”

At times of national peril, with all this devolution, UKIP-Lilliputian and Russell Brand-prostitution, what we need are role models with high standards, proper poise, and a healthy respect for good grammar. Thank goodness Lotta Quizeen is here! While husband Dickie is abroad with work, Lotta’s son Hugo has agreed to help his mother out with her campaign - if only he would hurry back from Prontaprint with the pamphlets! The empty nest has never seemed emptier for women like Lotta and with so many young women busy with their careers (including her daughter-in-law, Susan), Lotta is ready to step majestically into the breach and bring sensible back to this fair isle! Today the John Lewis Aga; tomorrow, the World!

‘Special highlight of Female Arts Scratch: Revolution with Elocution! I can even fold a fitted sheet now…’ Audience member, Bread and Roses Theatre 2014

‘Lotta Quizeen has a unique thing going and, well, I’ll never be able to fold a napkin without giggling again.’ – Theatre in the Cheap Seats, Battersea Arts Centre 2013

“Amidst the humour, there's a theme of atrophy, of faltering love, of simply growing old.” FringeGuru, Brighton Fringe 2012

Lotta Quizeen a.k.a. Katie Richardson is proud to return to Brighton Fringe with her unique blend of domestic audience trials, quips on current affairs and ruddy rude British humour. Lotta's newest incarnation is the result of a collaboration between female new writing company, The Thelmas, director Madelaine Moore and playwright, Serena Haywood. The Thelmas are devoted to the promotion and development of female writers and theatre makers. We want to tell stories – stories of women, by women and for women.
