Close Enough

Everything but Theatre

'Believe me, no English teacher can ever prepare you for that: a British white man talking in his native accent!'

Close Enough is an autobiographical solo performance about belonging that challenges stereotypes around immigrant women from Eastern Europe.

The piece is based on real-life experiences of actress Cristina Varga, who moved to the UK 3 months before Brexit. With a comedic approach, Cristina shines light on the diversity and different dynamics between the two cultures that she is now part of: Romania and UK.

With the use of original live music, Close Enough tackles subjects and stereotypes from both cultures such as the world-famous British politeness and the infamous stigma of being a morally-questionable Eastern European immigrant.
