Heroin(e) for Breakfast is one of the success stories to come out of the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year. It is fair to say that the performance has gone down a storm with audiences which led to standing daily ovations in addition to the play winning the First Fringe Review Outstanding Theatre Award.

It is a four cast play starring Craig McArdle and Kirsty Green who have both studied BA Performance Arts at Calderdale College. The Phillip Stokes’ play highlights the seductive and destructive powers of heroin in a way that has even won over the critics, winning several 5* reviews.

 

“Heroin(e) for Breakfast is quite astonishingly accomplished, so beautifully written, staged and acted that it takes ones breath away.”, Sunday Telegraph.

“The writing is sparking and the invention second to none, supported by fine acting all around….Heroin(e) For Breakfast is a breath of fresh air amongst far too many bland solo shows.”, The British Theatre Guide

The good news does not stop there, a rather ecstatic cast and crew were delighted to discover they had won the Holden Street Theatre Award. This title enables the production to star in the 50th Adelaide Fringe Festival, second largest in the world (next to Edinburgh) from 19th February – 20th March 2010. If you would like to see the play it is appearing Wakefield Arts Centre 22-24th September before embarking on a tour to Australia and New Zealand.
