This is my fourth solo show, which I performed in 2010 at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Brighton Fringe, The Buxton Fringe and The Hollywood Fringe. That's a lot of fringes.
Even more exciting is the fact that at The Hollywood Fringe, the show won two smashing awards - Hollywood Fringe Award for Best Comedy and LA Theatre Review award for Best International Show. Bully for me!
What's it all about? Have you ever found yourself swearing at dawdling strangers? Or having futile tantrums at non-moving transport? Is the relentless pace of modern life making you strop and huff like a petulant child? Me too.
That’s why I staged a one-person Go Slow for an entire month. I used stairs instead of lifts, wrote letters instead of emails and took two bottles into the shower.
But by removing my obsession with timesaving did I become less of a time-addled stress-bag? Or did I just feel ostracised from society and go a bit mental?
This show explores what happens when you stop rushing around like a caffeine-addled hummingbird and take a moment to slow down. The results are most surprising and I’d like to share them with you.
