Words with AL Kennedy

A largely autobiographical look at her love affair with language, Kennedy meanders delightfully from paranoia about her recent Costa award win through her child to adulthood, concluding with a slice of audience interaction.

Where Pringles, Shakespeare and Tasmania meet; why poetry gets imprisoned; how words can change your mind, your story and possibly your world. A poignant and hilarious new show from Costa award-winning writer. 'Startlingly good' (Guardian).
