Our very own business development executive, Anthony Orme, is not just brilliant at his job here at RSVP, he is also super talented and productive outside of work, and has written and directed a play called 1in 3.
The play is about two characters, Jeff and Jasmine, and their relationship and the difficulties they face when they find out that Jeff has prostate cancer.
‘Life is more than the days you have left. Jeff and Jasmine are two very different people, at very different stages, sharing one life threatening disease. But through each other they learn why life is worth being threatened.’
The BBC will be in one of the rehearsals tomorrow to film as one of the actors in the play has recently found he is the youngest man to ever be diagnosed with prostate cancer, so this play couldn’t be more relevant to this particular actor’s life right now.
The show will be on at The Camden Fringe from the 15th of August to the 19th Upstairs at the Gatehouse in Highgate.
‘1 in 3 tells the uplifting story of how life is measured in friendship and the experiences had, not hours. Writer and director Anthony Orme has once again brought together a fantastic cast of experienced and professional actors that will leave a lasting impression on audiences throughout their weeklong run. The play aims to invite people into a dialogue about cancer – a subject which most shy away from. As well as raising awareness, Now You Know Productions will also be donating a share of their profits to Cancer Research UK. Any tickets purchased will help to fund future research into finally finding a much ‐needed cure.’
The show has recently been taken to Brighton for a week and received a rave response and a 5 star review also! As mentioned above, 10% of all profit will go to Cancer Research. Not only will this play open your eyes to important and real life issues, you will be helping the charity aid the research which we all so need for the future generations.
