Can you believe it!
This Springtime is rushing and rollicking in!
Last days of Februaryyy and snow!
January and February have been busy babies indeed!
Bouncing, bursting and blossoming.
Reeking, heaving and bawling.
Seeing, feeling and touching.
January was full of religion, recovery and routine! A lot of my energies of the last two months have been funnelled into my two amazing Queerlesque courses, London and Brighton, AND rehearsals for the Arcola Theatre Queer Collective’s production of Corpus Christi. It has been wonderful working with a new batch of inspiring and aspiring cabaret/lesque performers! A baker’s dozen between the two cities, I’m really looking forward to both showcases; I just KNOW the pieces and performances are so brave, bold and intimate for these darlings. I’m cryyying alreadyyy! COME SEE US! INFO BELOW…

Eivind Hansen is a genius and a darling!
And Corpus Christi is coming along nicely with our AQC fellows opening their shows: THE CLUEDO CLUB KILLINGS and FINE AND DANDY, tonighhht and us opening NEXT WEEK! Tix Here for CORPUS CHRISTI! I’m playing John The Baptist and I’ve loved taking on this facetted and unfettered character, in our raucous and rebellious production of this problematic play. More to come about this because, to be honest, I feel like the show won’t truly come to life until the audience is there to join our playinnng. It has been wonderful working with Nick Connaughton again; previously Nick directed me as Oberon in the ACQ Midsummer Night’s Dream and we co-directed a psychedelic, queer version of The Little Prince for ACQ too! AND THIS IS HIS LAST ACQ SEASON! So I was so happy to be cast in the show and to have this unique Queer Collective opportunity with him and all the cherished and new members who have joined the team this year.
