It’s November 2022 and that’s bonkers. I know that all of us at this time of year say “how can it be November?” but after spending a huge chunk of two years in lockdown, I am also asking how it can be 2022?
But here we are!
Here’s my November update. It’s a whopper, so grab a cuppa and strap in!
On the home front my dear mate, Bernard is arriving this week for some long overdue catching up. Those of you who saw Disgraceful will have heard about him. The exciting thing is that he will be here for the next run of Disgraceful at The Motley Bauhaus 24th, 25th, 26th Nov. So if you didn’t see the show (or would like to see how it has evolved) then you can come to the show and meet the man himself!
Use the code BERNARD for a 20% discount.
- You get to see my hilarious and fun show
- You get to meet Bernard, who many of my disgraceful tales involve
- You get 20% off tickets
- You make me happy!
There are only three chances to catch the show, so don’t miss out.
And if you’re still not sure if the show is for you, here are some of the wonderful things reviewers have said about the show:
“...very funny one-woman show… resolutely unapologetic or regretful… Best’s delivery is surprisingly clean… consistently funny… Best’s on-stage persona being especially warm and affable… slick delivery” – Jim Schembri
“There is a vulnerability and self-consciousness in Best’s storytelling that is both relatable and admirable… warmness, grace and sharp humour” ★★★★ – Arts Hub“
a funny… in-your-face trip down memory lane crossing times, trends, and continents. Lucy Best does what she does best – tells a story of ‘getting your sh/t together’… or not.” – Weekend Notes
Lorne Film & KW Films have begun shooting the supernatural horror/romance feature film, MAGPIE in Trentham, Victoria. Written and produced by Darren Markey, and produced and directed by Kate Whitbread. (I am associate producer and have also been cast in a role)
The main shoot is scheduled for early 2023 and the team behind MAGPIE are hosting a fundraising event, THE MAGPIE BALL – at the gorgeous Cosmopolitan Hotel, Trentham, on Friday 9th Dec. It’s going to be a fun and fabulous night, hosted by me! All proceeds from the night will go towards the production of MAGPIE.
Tickets are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment!
Check out this crowdfunding campaign to learn how you can support the film and get your hands on goodies such as a signed script, your name in the film credits and a double pass to opening night of the film.
Check out the amazing items (and more are coming) that have been generously donated to the silent auction as part of the fundraiser. The auction will be launched at the Magpie Ball and will run for a week. You can bid even if you don’t attend the event. So check out all the goodies here!
The Woman by the Water
I am also working on another feature film being developed by Lorne Film and written by Darren Markey: The Woman by the Water.
Story by and Produced by ME and Darren Markey!
The Woman by the Water is a contemporary fairytale about two women, who yearn for love and home. A chance meeting leads them to each other but true love’s course does not smoothly thanks to some troublesome trolls!
The film is currently in development and you can be part of bringing it to life by supporting the upcoming Proof of Concept shoot.
Other gigs in November
I’m not doing many gigs this month, as I’m focussing on Disgraceful but you can follow me on the socials to find out about ones I am doing.
One I’ve had booked for a while is Sugar and Spice comedy, we’re I’ll be sweet and spicy!
Tickets are $10 if you pre-book and $15 on the door, so I reckon you should book it!
I’ll also be making an appearance singing some duets at the Coburg RSL 19th Nov!
