A Brilliant Show

Yesterday evening I went to see The Fourpenny Circus, which, says the website, is ‘a lightly staged poetry show which combines good live literature with silliness, sadness and stagecraft‘ – and it was really, really good. Funny in (plenty of) places, sad in others and on one or two occasions even a little rude. I enjoyed it a lot, not only for the poems, which were mostly great and at times brilliant, but for the show as well, for the movement. And when those in the show are poets (Jo Bell, Joy Winkler, John Lindley and Andrew Rudd)and not actors I think that’s quite an achievement. Great stuff. I’d recommend it to anyone, I think.
(And a big thank you to Jess for driving me there.)

    Sounds great! I have not heard of anything like it before. I'm going to check out the dates and see if there are any local performances.Apologies for not being around much, I am writing a new blog post at the moment, which will explain why I haven't got my lazy arse moving, and what I intend to do about it! LOL Although I am not completely lazy, I have been busy in other areas of my life. Honest! I'm going to be more vocal in my friends' blogs, too. So expect to see more of me – haha! Take care! EllaX
