Coming up soon at London’s Old Vic theatre is 17c, a play about Pepys. From the website:

This is Samuel Pepys. Completely unfiltered.

From his infidelities, to his perversions, to his meetings with the King, to his bunions, Pepys recorded it all in his diary. He had a compulsion to report every minute of his daily life and to examine himself through the pages.

17c splices contemporary dance, spoken word, video and music in this witty, fast-paced and feminist exploration of the tell-all diaries, taking apart Pepys’ character and giving voices to the women in his life – in particular his tragic wife, Bess.

It’s conceived and directed by Annie-B Parson, and performed by New York City based company Big Dance Theater. It runs from 26 to 29 September 2018.

Greetings! My name is Kourtney, and I play an annotator from pepysdiary.com in 17c. I hope to be able to meet some real life (online) annotators at the upcoming shows at the Old Vic. Let me know if you will be there! www.bigdancetheater.org
