Madonna On The Rocks

Madonna on the Rocks is a neon-lit exorcism in a jazz bar, with songs inspired by Madonna, Peaches and Nina Simone. It’s about our egos, our responsibilities and our dreams. And the struggle to be an artist, or to have any sort of career at all really, and be a parent at the same time.

This is a work in progress production, written and performed by Marie Hamilton with Fringe First winning director Hildegard Ryan, and Berlin-based, Cameron Mackintosh Award winning composer Ben Osborn.

Somewhere between a musical, a cabaret, a comedy and a tragedy, it will make you question your prejudices, remember to call your mum, and fight for a fairer future for us all.

Marie Hamilton

Marie Hamilton is an actor and writer. Her name rhymes with Gary Spamilton, and don't you dare get it wrong or she might gently correct you.

At 18 she went to Paris to train with Philippe Gaulier, then she went to Bristol and made a lot of fringe theatre, then she did an MA in acting at ArtsEd. She now lives in London, working mainly in Theatre, Film and TV, and sometimes Performance and Video Art.

She has toured internationally, and worked at the Almeida, the Soho Theatre, the Gate and the Arcola, the Bristol Old Vic, the Tobacco Factory, and the Wardrobe in Bristol, at the Pleasance, Edinburgh, and the North Wall Arts Centre, Oxford.

She has worked with Sally Cookson, Talawa, ATC, and Travelling Light and is Co-Artistic Director of District Theatre with Christian Loveless. Her work has been shortlisted for the LET and Untapped awards and is supported by Bristol Old Vic Ferment and Arts Council England.

The Greenwich Visitor on Polly (The Heartbreak Opera)
“A triumphant melding of satire, stagecraft, and more than a hint of the sinister... laugh- a-minute stuff of the highest order... Theatre needs ingenuity like this.”

Exeunt on Polly (The Heartbreak Opera)
"Horror amid the hilarity: Marie Hamilton and Stephanie Kempson’s musical John Gay adaptation hits all the right notes... Overwhelming fun"

Weston-Super-Mum on Polly (The Heartbreak Opera)
"Gritty, in-your-face, intelligent exploration of feminism, power and control... bang on for political timing and satirical commentary"


Writer/Performer: MARIE HAMILTON
