Stacey Solo and the Summer of Silence

Stacey Solo is strong female lead (detective), about to face the toughest case of her career: a woman enters the department with no voice, a shoe-stealing criminal is unexpectedly acquitted, and a strange set of initials appears at every turn...

Burdened with a tragic back story and struggling with her personal life, Stacey must throw the rule book out of the window and solve the summer of silence, before it's too late.

This is a fast-paced, high-energy, feminist piece of character comedy with a narrative from the mind of Tamar Broadbent (BBC Radio 4, Comedy Central, Boom Chicago). Inspired by all your favourite Netflix heroines, with an explosive musical score by John-Victor (Club Mex), this fun-packed show explores femininity, ambition, how many characters one actor can play, and what it really means to be a ‘strong female lead’ in 2020.

About Tamar Broadbent

Tamar is a comedian, improviser, writer and award-winning songwriter. She has written five solo musical comedy shows, of which Get Ugly was nominated for Best Comedy at Fringeworld, and Best Life transferred to the SoHo Playhouse in New York. Her catchy, funny story-songs can be found on Spotify and YouTube.

From 2018-2019, Tamar worked at American improv theatre Boom Chicago, where she performed long form, short form and musical improv five nights a week, wrote sketches and created multiple characters. The 25th Anniversary show for the theatre saw her perform at the Royal Theater Carré along with alumni Seth Meyers, Kay Cannon and many other renowned US comedy names. She has hosted many large-scale events, including the Nordic Business Forum 2019, with an audience of 7655 and special guests including George Clooney and Sara Blakely.

Tamar has written for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, Sketchtopia and Fresh From the Fringe. She wrote and filmed a pilot based on her one-woman show Best Life with Fiction Valley (Fremantle) NL, and wrote the book for Club Mex, a coming-of-age musical comedy about a girls’ holiday in Mexico, co-written with John-Victor and produced by Global Musicals (Six).

In her free time, Tamar enjoys singing, being horizontal and drinking as much wine as is stereotypically expected of a 29-year-old city woman.
