The Struggling Life of An Artist

About The Struggling Life of An Artist

A struggling movie actress and an aspiring horror writer are on the very brink of success - each just a compromise away.

Jessica can achieve her dream of taking the lead role in a big budget feature film if she’ll just “upgrade her sex appeal”. And a prestigious publisher just loves Olivia’s manuscript and will happily give her a contract, if she’ll simply adopt a male nom de plume.

Inspired by reality,The Struggling Life of An Artist is a comedy (with the occasional song) about the insanity of male-dominated creative industries.
It has its world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 and addresses the old conundrum faced by so many talented aspiring artists – abandon artistic integrity for the sake of success or stay true to their art and miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime?

Written by Xiomara Meyer (a real-life horror geek who also takes the part of Olivia) and directed by Tamalynne Grant (who plays Jessica) it’s a play that will ring true for every artist of any age, and all backgrounds.
