“Ex-periences” is an original theatre production written by Delia-Rene Donaldson, the co-writer of the award winning TV show “Venus vs Mars” premiered on Sky Living TV in 2015 and the “UK Blog Awards 2016” shortlisted lifestyle and relationship blog “Vex In The City.”

“Ex-periences” is based around 4 young professional black women living in London; they are all close friends from secondary school, individually going through different relationships status and issues. We witness first-hand the highs and lows of their relationships, and their battles to decide what is right or wrong. Because of their friendship they often look to each other for advice and this can be positive but also a hindrance. But regardless of the heartache and headache that they are going through with their men, they support each other and show the most important love to obtain, is the love you have for yourself.

Please note this production will have other arts fused into the production so actors with additional talents are welcomed please highlight in your application. Previous acting experience is necessary, video submissions welcomed. Performance to be held in June 2016.
