    „this simple and heartfelt show feels like a real labour of love… a really tremendous & rounded performance‟

    Lyn Gardner

Winner of Best Solo Performer, The Stage Awards 2010

    Caroline Horton’s appearance in the Netherlands premiere of her own play promises to be one of the highlights of this year’s Amsterdam theatre scene. Last year QETC played the Edinburgh Fringe - the world’s biggest theatre festival with over 2000 plays on offer! During their own run they discovered this jewel of a play, part comedy, part romance, playing to packed houses! Caroline Horton’s award-wining success at the Fringe prompted QETC to bring her and the original production to The Netherlands, so that an even wider audience can enjoy it.

    You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy, is the extraordinary true story of an eccentric young

    French woman’s affair with a tongue-tied English teacher, set against the backdrop of the Second World War. Waiting at Gare Du Nord for the train that will reunite her with her fiancé, this irrepressible Mademoiselle shares their love story: from a chance encounter at Cheadle tennis club to cosmopolitan 1930s Paris, before their inevitable separation by war.

    In 2002, Christiane, moved into sheltered housing. Amongst a lifetime of clutter, was a shoebox containing her wartime letters. Over the last year, Caroline has pieced together her story from the

    letters and from their conversations about Christiane’s youth, her romance with Cyril and her memories of occupied France. These memories are full of humour, resilience and her love of life.

Caroline Horton’s credits include: Heldenplatz (Arcola); Cinderella (Warwick Arts Centre); Art

    House and Almost 10 (Tangram Theatre, 2009 Edinburgh Festival). Other credits include: Les

    FEVs: Ou est il?, a clown show performed around France; Anna in Dreams to My Father (Teasel

    Theatre company); A Show That Will Save The World! (Potato Theatre, European tour and 2007

    Edinburgh Festival); Graceland/Asleep on The Wind (Hen and Chickens); The Revenger’s

    Tragedy (Theatre Underground); Twelfth Night (Cambridge Arts Centre). Caroline is a member of The Optimists young theatre makers network in the West Midlands. You’re Not Like The Other

    Girls Chrissy is Caroline Horton’s first piece as a solo artist.

    You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy was commissioned by China Plate/Warwick Arts Centre/mac for the Bite Size Festival 2010. It premiered at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2010.

     „It's a tale she tells with plenty of charm, but a gratifying lack of sentiment…As somebody whose grandparents went through similar, I'm not ashamed to say I found myself welling up at the dénouement.‟

     „gathers in both charm and emotional engagement until even a hardened hack may be on the brink of tears. Winsome in all the best ways, this Horton may not be hearing a “Who?” for very long.‟
