“Hello, my name is Delphine. My mum says it’s French chic but I like it ’cause my favourite animal is a Dolphin.”
Delphine is 30 and up to now the possibility of falling in love has only ever existed in her imagination. Now something has happened and Delphine must finally face the joys and difficulties of adult freedom. The decision to risk her own fragile emotions, break free and stand in her own shoes is a terrifying one. Join Delphine in her home, enter her world and ‘help yourself to a mint.’
Clare Rebekah Pointing is an actor, writer and director. As one of the founding members of The River People, Clare performed and created work with the company from 2006 to 2010, touring with their two award winning shows: The Ordinaries in An Awkward Silence and Lily Through The Dark. The company won the International Theatre Award at The Edinburgh Festival 2009 and also Total Theatre’s award for Best Emerging Company.
Clare has gone on to perform with Tucked In Productions, Little Angel Theatre, RSC, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Lyric Hammersmith, Dotted Line Productions, and Pins and Needles.
Directed by Charlotte Bennett, Delphine is set to go down a storm at Fringe 2016. Here’s a snippet of the glowing audience feedback from the London previews:
‘I just really want her to be ok! … Amazing show, very funny, and then it hits you right when you’re not expecting it!’ – Nicola Godson
‘Delphine left my cheeks aching and feeling warm and fuzzy inside, what an absolute pleasure’ – Rosalind Steele
‘I laughed, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat. Delphine wins your heart and captivates with a knife edge stare. Repeat viewing is a must!’ – Mark Esaias
