Theatre (solo show, true-life)

  • Babes in arms policy: Babies do not require a ticket
  • Policy applies to: Children under 2 years


Darkly comedic one-woman show about our natural inclination to go with the flow. If you’ve ever agreed to do something you’re supremely unqualified to do, or looked across the table at someone and wondered why the hell they're still in your life, it probably started with your unwillingness to Say If It's Not Okay. Following a year of psychotherapy, award-winning writer Angela Jackson is now supremely qualified to reflect on the havoc caused by her own reluctance to speak out. 'Dry northern wit... Comic genius... A brilliant storyteller... Life-affirming warmth and generosity of spirit' (

Angels Jackson is a brave, clever and joyful force of nature. Her true story is heartbreaking but she imparts words of true wisdom. Life is ultimately good and Hope reigns! We thought this show was marvellous. So will you!

Angela Jackson's solo reflection on life was gripping. It explores what creates the patterns of our lives and how to understand and start the work of changing those we no longer need or want. It was raw but not over dramatic and sad but not self-pitying. I came out after an intense hour feeling positive and hopeful. Definitely an hour very well-spent.

Seriously, I did not expect to relate so much to this short play by Angela Jones. I was all agog listening to her life experiences and seeing some parallels in mine.. Why do we allow people to treat us with indifference? We are all carrying baggage we would rather not. How we seek to cope with the cards we’re dealt is all important.
Watch this play people.. it made me proud I’ve come out the other end.
Well worth the wait after lock down.

A beautifully crafted script that really engages the audience. Angela gives a captivating performance. She’s such a warm presence on the stage. Extremely funny and emotional ‘Say if not Okay’ is one of the highlights of our fringe experience. You don’t want to miss it

My friend and I absolutely adored this show. Brave, vulnerable, sad, funny, intimate and very clever. Don’t miss this!

Searingly honest and achingly funny, this show takes you on a seemingly low-key and gentle journey that somehow touches the soul. Not to be missed. Whether you are that person who has never felt ‘good enough’ or the kind who puts such people down, Angela Jackson’s insights will prod you towards a better path.

Never has a year of therapy been so enjoyable. Angela Jackson took the audience on a sometimes poignant, often funny fifty minute exploration of how it feels to spend a lifetime never having said that it's not okay. Good one-liners and comic timing softened the telling of her personal journey. Well worth the ticket money!
