Lost Girl at The Kings Arms, Chapel Street 15 — 16 July 2024 Tickets from £5.99 — Book now

The award-winning playwright Amy Lever brings her brand-new theatre piece to Greater Manchester Fringe 2024. Lost Girl is a fascinating one-woman show exploring Jewish-Arab heritage, connection and lineage.

Telling the story of 19-year-old Birdy, Lost Girl has been inspired by a real-life family secret. Even though she’s too old to beat boys up in the playground or skip maths, Birdy wishes she wasn’t. However, when she unearths a family secret buried since 1930s Cairo, Birdy seizes her chance to rectify past wrongs and prove that she isn’t so useless after all.

Biting, funny and moving, Lost Girl blends the worlds of early 2000 girlhood nostalgia and biblical gothic horror. Although fictional, the show has been inspired by a real family experience.

Definitely, one to watch – Amy Lever is a northern Jewish writer and actor of Eastern European, Egyptian and Lebanese heritage. Her debut play Life Before the Line won the Cambridge University Edinburgh Fringe Award 2022 before transferring to the Cockpit Theatre, and is currently in development for a tour. Since then, she has been selected for the Warner Bros x Royal Exchange Writer’s Programme, and a script development scheme with Channel 4 and New Writing North.

Lost Girl will preview at the King’s Arms as part of the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival ahead of its run at George Square, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2024. Don’t miss this compelling examination of Jewish-Arab tradition, womanhood and family.
