Hannah Maxwell – ‘I, Amdram’ (Work In Progress) I, Amdram constitutes Hannah Maxwell’s first fulsome foray into storytelling performance. In this irreverent memoir on family, history and hometown, Maxwell guides a baffled audience through the musty vibrancy of amateur dramatics. In this developing piece, she journeys back to her green and pleasant hometown (Welwyn Garden City), for the Welwyn Thalians’ 2010 production of My Fair Lady: directed by her mother, featuring most of her family, and her final show before she came over all queer of a sudden, cut her hair and moved to London for uni. With the help of show-stopping numbers, half-remembered tap dances, and cut-glass cynicism, Maxwell attempts to mind the gaps between city and suburb, professional and ‘amateur’ art, the places we live and worlds we leave.
