announcing Louche Women’s Autumn Season

Louche Women the inimitable live evening I co host with Sue Kreitzman at the Poetry Place, 22 Betterton Street, London, returns 16th September for its Autumn season dedicated to… SCI-FI. Check out the gigs page for the next gig, and news of guests and live muscians. Warm your autumn third Wednesday of each month with Louche Women as Sue Kreitzman and I travel into the depths of space via Dr Who, the absence of women, the presence of women, monstrous mothers, aliens and life on Mars.

This photo is from my Louche Heads – at each Louche Women, I wear a themed headpiece. This one is from our SEX show – and is After Meret Oppenheim. (With a dash of Pussy Riot).

New work in development.

Consciousness Raised by Daleks is my new show in development. Formed from a writing retreat in Scotland, my love of sci fi and body horror films, it kickstarts a residency at the Feminist Library. Set in a dystopian future, would it be such a bad thing if Daleks ran the world? Mandy who works in their call centre doesn’t think so, until she finds something that could change everything…

 

The show is in early stages and a taster will be scratched at Camden People’s Theatre 20th September for its fantastic feminist festival, Calm Down Dear!

Skin Tickling…

Well it’s been quite a time of it all and dawn ebbs its way closer. I am developing new work which is at the very beginnings, on the top of my skin before it sinks its teeth in and grabs hold… Keep you lovelies posted. I’ve returned to my first love: writing… a summer residency… an Essex outing… to be announced soon… It will be platformed at a London venue Autumn 2015. I’m excited about it. Til then…have a compass and a beating heart. Tick tock…tick tock…
