Meet Bush Associate Artists Sabrina Mahfouz and Caroline Horton in these two intimate, frankly spoken and wildly funny solo shows performed over one evening in Encounters.

You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy by Caroline Horton

January 1945. Paris has been liberated. Christiane, an eccentric and acutely myopic Parisian waits at Gare Du Nord for a ticket to England to be reunited with her fiancé. Whilst she waits, this gloriously irrepressible mademoiselle recounts the story of her love affair with Cyril, a tongue-tied English teacher from Staffordshire.

A fond, comical and ultimately poignant portrait of one woman’s experience of love and war.

Dry Ice by Sabrina Mahfouz

Meet Nina, a 24-year-old stripper on the edge; her half-art-half-drug dealing boyfriend, and 18 other eccentrically entertaining characters from the world of surreal, sleazy, velvety strip-clubs and gentrified London dinner parties.

Dry Ice is a début solo show from the award-winning playwright and poet Sabrina Mahfouz. Mahfouz worked as a waitress in a strip-club for 5 years. But Dry Ice is not just a strip club exposé – it’s a story of a young girl trying to find her place in the world. It is also quite funny.

Developed with David Schwimmer, High Tide, Genesis Lab, New Wimbledon Fresh Ideas
