Well the amazing folk at Wise Words never stop, 2017 saw the festival in Canterbury spread over 10 days in early May. Here i performed a one hour spoken word show a collection of works that explored the the matter of family life, the unshrinkable mass that takes up space in our heads and hearts. An unqualified father and husband without a handbook making it up as i go along with only love to give.
From the love that got us here, that carried us through the arrival of children and the heart stopping moment of losing them down a well…. We’ve all lost a kid down a well right? The love that picks up toys from the floor every single night whilst stepping on lego bricks without swearing.
The Love that pulls us back from the edge and keeps us smiling.’
The show’s debut performance went really well and i’m looking forward to developing it further to take maybe on tour.
