Big Wow Small Wonder
I had a fantastic time putting together my brand new children's show Big Wow Small Wonder, with Half Moon Theatre. I had a whole heaps of help from young people at Darlinghurst Primary School, Southend Hospital, Jacqson and Diego Bookshop and Milton Community After School Club. The show is all written and rehearsed now and there's great music from Pete Coates and wonderful design by Verity Quinn. Big Wow has already been performed 14 times at Half Moon Theatre and in festivals in London and Nottinghamshire.
It's been a great hit with audiences. Here's some things young people have said....
"It's so good that I would get a CD and watch it everyday"
"good, funny, good acting"
"a lovely and creative moment in our half-term"
"my foster son is autistic and finds it hard to concentrate but he was spellbound by the performance"
"exelent, fablas, mavlas, sooper!"
The show continues to tour nationally. For the latest dates, see Upcoming Gigs and Events. If you are a school, library or theatre venue, I can perform the show for you. Contact Half Moon Theatre.
The Book of World Record Breaking Rhymes
This summer I wrote and performed an interactive poetry show commissioned by Southend Libraries to support their Summer Reading Challenge. (The photo is of me in an honorary Reading Challenge T-Shirt).
Apples and Snakes Public Address Tour
I was delighted to take part in Apples and Snake's prestigious Public Address III tour, in a sopabox-themed show directed by the esteemed Hannah Silva. My commissioned piece of narrative spoken word, called Village Jesus, was the first substantial piece of work I've aimed at adults for over five years. Following on from the successful tour, I've been performing the piece alongside some of my other poetry for adults at events such as Write Angle in Petersfield.
National Poetry Day
The next National Poetry day is on Thursday 6th October 2016 and this year's theme is Messages. I usually visit lots of schools in and around this week (and throughout the year) but I currently have availability for more bookings. I perform for audiences of all ages, Key Stages 1 -4, and offer workshops to individual classes around writing and performing, drawing on the National Poetry Day theme or any theme suggested by the school.
