Persephone Productions presents… COUNTING ALOUD
written and performed by Gabrielle Soskin
Our Doubts are Traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt
50 years ago, Gabrielle Soskin, educator, actor and director, emigrated from England to Canada. It was to be the beginning of a new adventure.
Brought up in Hampstead, Gabrielle was educated at King Alfred School, The Bristol Old Vic theatre school and Trent Park College of Education. After a highly successful tour of Counting Aloud in Canada, Gabrielle returns to her homeland where it all began. Counting Aloud is her intimate story. A passionate woman of ‘a certain age’ who has struggled with inner demons all her life, seeks a way to escape from the ghosts of her troubled past through music. She decides to take up the piano. Told with humour, angst, and inspired by some of Shakespeare’s most famous truths, Gabrielle’s challenging musical journey becomes a universal metaphor for life and love.
She is thrilled to be performing at the Gatehouse in Highgate, an area so full of cherished memories.
