Looking for headline/guest slots, festival and fringe bookings for 2020
My Truth poem from a few years ago for National Poetry Day
Openness is a fine virtue
that leaves you naked
to be raided by the bone pickers
scavenging for your faults
to bring substance to their sad lives
so they can troll their messages
of lies and innuendo’s
yet the trolls will never ascend
to the beauty of your soul
that shines from beneath
the layers of your humanity
that shows the very truth
of your beautiful pure nature.

Although I didn’t win I’m really pleased that my show ‘70 A New Decade Of Fun’ at Greater Manchester Fringe was nominated for best Spoken Word, congratulations to Rose Condo The Empathy Experiment who won.
I wrote and put together ’70’ intending it as a one-off Fringe show, however after performing it at Greater Manchester Fringe last Thursday I can’t leave it at that, it felt good and I had some lovely comments, where do I go now, do I need help to put together more performance venues?
’70’ A New Decade of Fun…contains that it can be a good time for many, but there is also the truth of ageing, the darkness of ageing, the health changes….then the humour….real life stories… Holidays SAGA and Benidorm…Observations and Comedy.
Comment from a young friend and brilliant poet from NYC:
(Jordan Delise Fleming; ‘What an AMAZING show. Hilarious, heartfelt, and unapologetically Carol. So glad I came out.’)
I really need to think about what is next for this performance!
