Video and images from Rep Stripped at Dundee Rep

Back in May 2019 I took part in the Rep Stripped Festival in Dundee. The event was in the Dundee Rep Theatre and I presented Letter We Leave Behind in the workshop room.

The production made me think about the use of space and how existing locations make an impact on the way I present my work. The Rep Stripped Festival was several months ago and soon after I presented Letters We Leave Behind in Paisley. This was in a totally different location and I will present videos, images and thoughts on this later.

I think Private Plays in the future will be different. More minimal. Smaller. Intimate and alive.

Be My Friend, Please – Mini Zine

This mini-zine is a performance in a zine that looks at loneliness when you are autistic. The story tackles friendship and asking for help. The zine itself features illustrations and instructions on how and where to act out the story (but as with the other performances in the mini-zine series, you can do it wherever you please).

Be My Friend, Please is available at – https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/532370792/be-my-friend-please?ref=shop_home_active_16

New Zine – Misremembering Sarah Kane

I have a new zine for sale!

Misremembering Sarah Kane Through My Own Suicide Attempts is a comic book zine about my own experiences with mental health, suicide and self harm. The zine features text, essays and comics. It is an abstract retelling of how I confuse my memories with my experiences of watching and reading plays by the cult 1990’s playwright Sarah Kane. I use comic books as a means to discuss being a suicide survivor and how this can affect memory and personal experiences.

Sarah Kane (3 February 1971 – 20 February 1999) was an English playwright who is known for her plays that deal with themes of redemptive love, sexual desire, pain, torture—both physical and psychological—and death.

The zine is –
