Liz Carr

Written and Performed by Liz Carr Directed by Poonam Brah Suitable for ages 14+ Running time: 65 minutes (no interval) After studying Law at the University of Nottingham, Liz Carr ended up taking the inevitable career path and became a stand-up comedian. Twenty years later and Liz returns to Nottingham with her critically acclaimed, semi-autobiographical play, It Hasn’t Happened Yet... This “…darkly comic mix of theatre and stand-up.” (Time Out) tells the story of up and coming disabled comedian Alex Saunders as she tries to make her way in the competitive world of comedy with wheelchair and alter-ego in tow. Plunging chair-first into territory where few dare to go, Carr’s first one woman play challenges conventional perceptions about comedy, ambition, insecurity, fame and even fish. “Supremely funny, twisted and edgy...” Critics Choice, Time Out.
