Over the last 2 years more than 500 audience members have supported the development of our last two new shows – The Duke and ME & ROBIN HOOD. The shows have gone on to tour nationally and internationally – playing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe & throughout London, including performances at the Barbican Centre, Soho Theatre and The Royal Court Theatre, as well as being adapted for radio for BBC Radio 4 and raising almost £67,000 for children refugees and street children. (They’ve also been translated into Turkish and Flemish!) Trying out new material in front of live audiences is a vital part of developing new work and I really appreciate the support I’ve had. I loved to invite you to join me to support the development of a new live show, OSTRICH which is in very early stages of developing.

I’ve been exploring the desire to find more optimism in the face of great pessimism. I’ve decided to share a weird incident with you – something that happened the last time I went back home to the Isle of Anglesey to visit my mother.

I’ll probably share around 30 minutes of material and ask you for some feedback. If your interested in coming:

I will be trying out this new material for OSTRICH, at
J3 at Cambridge Junction on Friday 23 February 2018 @ 6pm & 8pm

If you’d like to come, tickets are FREE but need to be booked by emailing admin@hoipolloi.org.uk

When you email please tell us:
1. Which performance would you like to attend – 6pm or 8pm
2. Your name and provide us with a contact phone number
3. The number of free tickets you need.

Please note, tickets are limited (30) and will be given on a first come, first served basis.

Thanks again. Very best
