Victoria Melody: Head Set

Oct 24, 2023 8:00 pm Oct 25, 2023 9:00 pm

Selected as one of the best shows to see at the Edinburgh Fringe by Time Out, The Times and The Stage.

What if success doesn’t look like winning a Nobel Prize (or just managing to get a mortgage) but is more about becoming your true self? 

Sufficiently disillusioned with her theatre career that she shoved cake into a woman’s face (she deserved it, FYI), Victoria Melody turns to Plan B: stand-up comedy. But in her search for creative freedom, she finds constraints and rules that she struggles to fit herself to. 

Keen to succeed, Victoria finds speech and language specialists who, at the grand old age of 40, diagnose her as neurodivergent. Cue a hyper-focused dive into dopamine mining, teaming up with a neuroscientist and performing with a Faraday cage on her head to explore the potential of stand-up as self-medication for ADHD. 

Head Set is the chronicle of Victoria’s journey, a bonkers, hilarious and galvanising celebration of becoming your authentic self.
