“Loved every minute of it…Hilarious!”

-Andrea Chambers, Audience member for Philadelphia, PA preview

“Lydia Hadfield is a gifted performance artist… Audience members were amazed by Lydia’s physical and vocal dexterity that enabled her to relay this multi-character, funny and compelling story.”

                     – Talya Kingston, Audience member for Amherst, MA preview

A solo, multiple-character show and satirical weather report. Plainview has been trapped in the eye of a storm for days, weeks, months, maybe years? All is not what appears to meet the…y’know….

What Are You Making?

“Lydia’s stories, movement, and comic sensibility are immediately captivating and hysterical. It’s like going for a ride in a comic strip that captures both the wonderfully mundane and eccentric nature of humans in this truly unique way. She is such a talent.”

             -Rebecca Fisher, Producer of Tell it on Tuesdays, The Marsh, Berkeley.

Lydia shares holiday stories from her stint working retail. The show visits a variety of characters and explores, with wicked irreverence, how holiday meaning is made at a fabric and crafts superstore.

Premiered December 2011 in Berkeley, CA.


Grimcraw Day

“‘Reckless’ in the best sense,” Amherst, MA.

“The over-the-top sheer excess of it all commands our laughter and amazement,” Hampshire College.


A Performer, a Director and a Lackey show up to provide holiday entertainment for Grimcraw Day. A thousand gumdrops later, will they understand what Grimcraw Day means? Audience and ensemble alike are transported into a madcap satire of our attitudes about celebration. Featuring hilarious character monologues, improvised segments, ‘Shakespeare,’ a song and dance, as well as a feat of dexterity, no two shows are exactly the same, and you’ll never feel the same way about Grimcraw Day.

Premiered April 2011 in Amherst, MA
