It’s been a while. How are you? How’s your face doing?
So I’ve been a tad busy lately. Mostly working on another project, ‘Do Geese See God?’ with Paper People Theatre. We performed it at Emergency on Saturday and are all really pleased with how it went. We also got to see a lot of beautiful and challenging pieces of work throughout the day. As soon as I can I will be posting up some images and video of the performance, we’ll also be hoping to perform it again with some tweaks and changes later on in the year.
Now on to more pressing news, How to be a Man is back! First off I’ll be performing it at Stage@Leeds on Thursday 13th October. I’ve got to say, I’m really looking forward to it. For a start I love Leeds. Also this is the first time I will be performing it at a theatre on a University campus, and one of the hopes I had when I made this show was that I could perform it at a University because I’m fairly certain it contains some really useful things for theatre students and gender studies students.It’s also a bigger theatre than most I have performed it in, which means bigger, better lighting and more impressive sound. It’s very exciting.
Then, later in December I will be heading off to the marvellous and brilliant venue, Alphabetti Theatre in Newcastle, which is another show I’m really looking forward to. Everyone I know that has taken work to Alphabetti has had nothing but fantastic things to say about the space and the people. You can find any upcoming performance dates by looking (fairly obviously) at my dates page.

“It captivated the audience from the get-go… His advocation for feminist and queer theory showed research, and he managed to cover the tricky terrain in a tongue-in-cheek manner… a delight to see someone so passionate about such a serious topic.”
