Are We Being Silly?
Thanks to support from Essex County Council and The Queens Theatre, Hornchurch, I'm looking forward to delivering a brand new show of fun material at three Essex libraries (Colchester, Chelmsford and Harwich) during the summer holidays plus a performance at The Queens Theatre itself on Saturday September 17th.....More information on the Upcoming Gigs page.
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. Big Wow continues it's tour of libraries and theatre venues across the country throughout the rest of 2016 and into the new year. For dates, see the Upcoming Gigs page.
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!"
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
Last 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.
