Description

Join award-winning writer and performer Jemima Foxtrot for a solo show featuring new poems and songs exploring confessional art and modern life in her unique voice. Jemima explores what it means to put your life into your art and explains how she finds excitement in the tiny things of every day. 'The brilliant Foxtrot is the one to watch’ (Observer). 'Her writing is full of lines that gleam like the pink parts of a seashell' (Stage). 'Jemima Foxtrot is the best thing to happen to spoken word in years' (Luke Wright).

We’re converted. We had never been to a poetry performance before and we were very pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed Jemima’s show. It’s a real Jem. Definitely worth seeing (or is that hearing)

Loved this show! Excellent poetry, and Jemima is a great performer, bought the book afterwards. Definitely urge you to go.

An absolutely enchanting show - exquisitely written and delivered. Generous, big-hearted, perceptive poems that celebrate life and humanity in its wonderful imperfection. It will leave you feeling glad to be alive.

This is probably the most heart-warming show I've been to. Jemima is great at conveying these small hidden feelings that we all have within us, but are too afraid to take out in the sun. There's also the feeling existential dread but also the thought that maybe everything will be okay...
Jamima's voice simply transports you to a different calm dimension in the middle of this big frenzy world.
