Punkswats and Being Lonely

Spoken Word (comedy, theatre)

Description

Rebecca Harrison is a typical Gen Z (zed): absolutely mortified. Who do they blame? The Punkswats, obviously. What's a Punkswat? That's what the show's about (keep up). The solution? Poetry, comedy, cameos from inner demons, outer demons, anti-individualism and the empathic wisdom of Dr Sigfried Lovecheese.

Is it comedy? Is it spoken word? Is it just goofy? Is it queer even whilst bemoaning orgasms lost to the friendly but useless erections of cisgender men?

It was a mixture of these things and more. This show is remarkable and joyous; an affirmation of life, a call to arms about how far we can conceive ourselves as being truly radical if we accept the fundamental assumptions of the modern capital "democracy"; and a showcase of some bloody good sad poetry.

Admittedly, I had to go twice to fully understand the show, but that's because I'm a dumb bitch. Tucked in a tiny room off a bar in Leith, sat inches away from Rebecca's ominous notebook, I was dumbstruck.

If you like Victoria Wood or Sue Townsend's blend of ridiculous characters with tragic lives, but also wake up in the mornings feeling like an imposter in your own bed, this show is for you.

If neither of those things apply, it doesn't matter, you'll find something that makes you giggle and something that makes you lose your breath. I know I found both in abundance in this strange, real, honest, profound happening.

Poems and large paper mache heads. You never know what to expect and yet always stay engaged. Please take the time to come watch this show!!!

A brilliant spoken word show by Rebecca Harrison, flowing from laughter to societal contemplation to feeling connected in our shared human experience. Using music, poems, larger than life masks and the space itself, the show takes you on a powerful journey through the intricacies and absurdities of life, how we relate to one another, and ultimately reminds us of our interconnection in a sometimes lonely and alienated world. Go experience it!
