Here Comes The Summer

Hi everyone, I hope you’re alright.  I really do.

So here’s a little update for you all what’s happened the last few months!

I have been working hard with Travels By Telephone, an amazing musician, to create a new show/set of poetry, spoken word fused with acoustic sounds.  We’re at the Edinburgh Fringe with the show 18th August midday at the Banshee Labyrinth, and it’s called Practise Patience.


I am super-excited to announce I am now an Associate Artist of Red Ladder Theatre Company.  Red Ladder have a strong history of activism and political theatre, supporting Unions and protests with theatre.  Hopefully it’ll be the start of a great relationship, and I’m really proud to be connected to their work.

I’ve just done Hidden Hill Festival, with Galtres Festival coming up at the end of August.  Hopefully a few more festival appearances to announce before the summer’s over.

This coming Thursday 4th July I’m taking my solo show to Eastleigh, and will be at Derby Theatre on the 18th July scratching an idea for a new show I’m starting to work on.  It’s part of Milk PresentsLucky Dip. It could be the next big show I make, and I’m really excited by the germ of the idea, but more writing to be done first.  But always onwards & upwards, I suppose.
