Part of The Last Word Festival, celebrating fearless storytelling.

Background People is a series of short absurdist stories exploring the line between commitment and obligation through spoken word, theatre and live art.

‘I stare at the shower cleaner. Eve-ry-day. If I buy it, the bottle states I must use it every day (for the rest of my life). Am I capable of such a commitment?’

This new show focuses on routine, relationships and place (and the 107 decisions crammed in between). It is an unashamed celebration of human messiness.

Background People is for anyone who finds themselves at the front… or at the back and thinks ‘sh*t’.

I’m excited about the possibilities of where I can go and what I can do
