Katerina Vrana – Feta With The Queen (Katerina Vrana / Free Festival)
By Priyanka Raval | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013
Despite its title, there was nothing cheesy about this performance, neither, thankfully did it detail the preferred dairy products of Her Majesty. Katrina Vrana, with a personality as big as her hair (a source of many of her jokes), relates her experiences as a Greek in Britain. Contrasting the loud, proud, Feta eating Greeks with her oh so accurate enactments of the tea-drinking, queue-forming, strongly-worded-letter-writing ways of the British, she hilariously demonstrates that there’s no smoke without fire when it comes to stereotypes. Continual laughter and many an exclamation of “It’s so true!” could be heard from an audience enamoured by the charming, outrageous Vrana. ‘Greece is broke!’ she often exclaims, but there was nothing poor about this Greek’s performance.
Laughing Horse @ Espionage, until 25 Aug, 10.00pm.
