Why See Superstar?
A true story from a talented theatre maker
Fresh from a fabulously successful sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival, Nicola Wren brings her hilarious one-woman show to the Southwark Playhouse, introducing London audiences to her heart-warming and honest quest to stand out from her spirited siblings, especially Chris, who happens to be the frontman of Coldplay.
From a childhood dodging paparazzi in bins to having actual Gwyneth Paltrow as your sister in law, Nicola saw her brother's stratospheric rise to fame - and whilst the parties and the perks were awesome, the level of scrutiny showed her the extreme downsides to superstardom. Just how long can she stay out of his shadow and is fame really all it's cracked up to be? Join Nicola as she explores the pitfalls of notoriety and how she found her own place in this joyous celebration of coming to terms with who you are.
