‘Who Do You Think You Are? Barbara Brownskirt’ is a darkly funny, pathos-fuelled show inspired by the TV show of similar name by writer and performance artist Karen McLeod.
Shrouded in iconic anorak, knees bulging from pop socks, Barbara Brownskirt is the unsuccessful lesbian Poet-in-Residence at the 197 bus stop, Penge. We meet her, unlucky-in-love, as she tries to find out who she is and why? Share the highs and lows as she explores the past through her absurd poetry and projected slide show.
Themes of identity, aloneness and failure thread throughout, but a circular safe space for the audience will be provided.
Fans of Rik Mayall and Tim Key will love it.
