Great Britain I In English

Gypsy Rose is imprisoned in a world of fantasy, invalided and infantilised by her mother Dee Dee. Until her online Prince Charming offers a way out…

“Directed by Colin Watkeys and written and performed by Caroline Burns Cooke, Proxy is a one-woman show based on a true story that tells of a mother and daughter struggling to survive in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Dee Dee is an ex-beauty queen whose daughter Gypsy suffers from all manner of ailments. They are regular benefactors of charities, including the Ronald McDonald charity and Disney's Make A Wish Foundation. But the reality is that the worst thing afflicting Gypsy is her mother, and as the nature of the parent-daughter relationship is uncoiled, Proxy leads the audience unflinchingly towards the darkest of conclusions. “
