Three 20-minute excerpts of brand-new work, including one of our First Bite festival commissioned shows – Georgie Jones’s ish….
Georgie Jones – ish… (20 mins)
Georgie Jones is 26 and has finally cracked what it means to be a woman. Just kidding. She’s haphazardly stumbling through adulthood trying to figure out the things she should know by now. Things like what shape your eyebrows should be and how long heartbreak lasts and whether putting a tampon in can kill you. In this debut hour, Georgie sets spoken word, stand up and storytelling to a soundtrack of nostalgic 90’s bangers in celebration of the simultaneously grotesque and glorious experience that is womanhood.

Phoebe Frances Brown – The Glad Game (work in progress)
Phoebe Francis Brown is an actor. From her early impressions of Dolly Parton, to becoming a member of Nottingham Television Workshop, from co-founding the sketch group Major Labia to roles at The Donmar Warehouse, Birmingham Rep and The National Theatre, acting has defined, formed and driven who she is.
In November 2018, aged 26, Phoebe was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour in the area of her brain that controls speech, language and memory.
The Glad Game is Phoebe’s story. Her story of finding herself in the darkest, bleakest of times, of finding gladness in the saddest of moments and of how who and what you love can pull you through.
This work deals directly with incurable cancer.
Fathers, Families and F*ckboys – Sophia Griffin (20 mins)
Inspired by autobiographical events and conversations, Fathers, Families and F*ckboys follows one woman’s journey to reconnect with her Father in order to connect with herself. An exploration of relationships and identity, the show looks at how we navigate through absence, the difference between our public persona and our private self and what happens when the two meet.
Age Guide: 14+
