A SQUATTER who occupied a flat opposite Brighton Clock Tower uses her experience to perform a show for the Fringe.

Jolie Booth tells the true story of Brighton woman Anne Clark, who helped set up Infinity Foods and was known in several local haunts including the Dorset and Heart And Hand pubs.

Ms Clarke was part of the 1970s counterculture scene in Brighton and is still remembered from her times in the Unicorn Bookshop, an alternative store that once stood at 50 Gloucester Road.

Jolie, with others, squatted in Ms Clarke's flat ten years after her death, discovering diaries, letters and belongings including a hip bone.

Now, through a meeting with Ms Clarke's daughter Nikki, Jolie puts on her one-woman show called Hip at the Marlborough Theatre in Princes Street, Brighton.

Producers say the show offers an "intimate, life-enhancing glimpse into the unique perspective of the life, love and laughs of a real woman who lived in Brighton during the 1970s". It also tells a story about the circles of life itself, charting Jolie's own experiences.

It runs tonight and tomorrow (May 10 and 11) as part of Brighton Fringe. Tickets are £10/£8 and the show starts at 7.30pm.
