Sun November 10 at 8:30 PM, Etcetera Theatre
265 Camden High Street, London NW1 7BU, UK (Map & Directions)
After a popular season at the Edinburgh Fringe, my play about fans and fandom is premiering in London for three nights only in November: Nov 10, Nov 15, Nov 17. Tickets on sale at the Etcetera Theatre website.

Inspired by the "fake geek girl" meme and the ongoing discussion of whether there should be a female Doctor, WHO ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE is about the imperfect world we geeks have made for each other.
Quotes from Edinburgh Fringe reviews:

“Taming of the Shrew with sonic screwdrivers and a TARDIS travelling case.” - Geek Chocolate

“Not just a boy-geek meets girl-geek love story, it's also a story of acceptance, of everyone's need for a "safe space" to allow them to be themselves, and an accurate study in Ash of what it's like to be a girl in a boy's club.” - Cult Den

“The play is intensely heavily researched (without wishing to stereotype ‘geek’ culture...) and also delightfully consistent in its usage of this research.” - Broadway Baby

“An hour’s amusement packed with enough geeky delights to please a fanboy (or fangirl)’s soul, with a charming story at its heart.” - Blogtor Who
