I wondered if hurdlers ever thought, you know, “This would go faster if we just got rid of the hurdles.” ― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Keeping on keeping on

After the dream run of my first full length solo show I have had a trying week! I’ve been sick, my kids have been sick, the weather is rubbish, the mornings are dark. But I’m doing what I always do – keeping on keeping on!

Some friends and I got matching tattoos to remind us of our strength in the face of, well, everything!

What’s next for Disgraceful?

Like all of us, Disgraceful is a work in progress.
Thanks to some of the on stage learnings, I plan to make some tweaks and adjustments. I have an incredible sense of satisfaction and achievement from doing EVERYTHING myself (writing, directing, producing, recording, design, wardrobe, graphic design, marketing etc), with support from my cabaret mentor, Tash York. However moving forward I will be formally getting some support with some of the parts of the show I want to develop. For example some choreography for the musical numbers, instead of of me just awkwardly jumping around and waving my arms about!
I plan to put the show back on later this year, before taking it on tour in 2023.
Watch this space for updates!
