Sophia Walker: Around The World In Eight Mistakes

Sophia Walker: Around The World In Eight Mistakes

This Best UK Spoken Word award winner and BBC Slam Champion tells her unique story of all the reasons never to move.

A rip-roaring roam around the world, the story will take you from the USSR all the way to present day London, via Washington DC, North Vietnam, and the Ugandan war, asking what is home and how do we get there?

An incredible true story, at times almost unbelievable – all told in a frank and honest way – you’ll encounter laughter and surprise at every twist and turn in this whirlwind of an adventure

A powerhouse of a spoken word show from a phenomina of a performer Edinburgh Fringe Review *****

 

Scary Little Girls:The Full Bronte

Scary Little Girls:The Full Bronte

Roll up, roll up for a cabaret celebration of your favourite literary sisters, their lives and times!

This affection tribute is a performative romp conducted with tongues firmly in cheeks! Hosts Maria (glamour puss, academic, thespian) and her assistant Brannie (ensemble cast, backstage crew, musician, general dog’s body) try their best to pay homage to Charlotte, Emily, Anne and their family – but best laid plans quickly go hysterically awry!  Story-telling, music, audience games and sketches create wuthering delights in a show that has been hailed as the anarchic love child of French and Saunders and Hinge and Brackett!

 

John Osborne: John Peel’s Shed

John Osborne: John Peel’s Shed

In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel’s Radio 1 show. His prize was a box of records that took eight years to listen to. This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in the wireless.

This show features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, and this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fans. A version of the show was recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre and broadcast on Radio 4, and it was chosen as Pick of the Day in The Radio Times.

Beautifully-written, funny and poignant… Just as John Peel’s records changed his life this lovely, simple, beautifully executed show has enriched ours
