Confessions of an English Danger Girl
by Austin Playhouse
Apr. 23 - May. 01, 2021
Named after her childhood club the Danger Girls, Bernadette Nason’s Confessions of an English Danger Girl takes us through the ups and downs of adolescence through Bernadette’s misadventures while growing up in 60s England. With the Danger Girls club slogan as inspiration, participants will learn of shenanigans, family dramas, and how “Helpful, but Dangerous” plays into Bernadette’s recalled adventures.
This autobiographical solo piece by English actor, storyteller, author, and sometime comedian Bernadette Nason depicts summers as a youngster in England during the 1960s, and introduces themes of family dynamics, sibling rivalry, and how to end up in therapy. The show combines storytelling and stand-up in an attempt to share those formative years between ages 9 and 11, when adults get in the way and rule-breaking is the name of the game.
