This darkly funny, pathos-fuelled sell out poetry theatre show by prize-winning writer and performer, Barbara Brownskirt (created and played by Karen McLeod) arrives at our local bus stop, Liverpool and into Rainhill Library.
Shrouded in iconic anorak, knees bulging from pop socks, Barbara Brownskirt is the unsuccessful lesbian Poet-in-Residence at the 197 bus stop, Croydon Road, Penge. We meet her, unlucky-in-love, as she attempts to find out who she is and why she is.
Share the highs and lows as she explores how to survive in 21st Century Britain through poetry, slides and a study of Judi Dench done three ways.
Indefatigable, prolific and utterly unpublishable, Barbara is the manifestation of bitterness, anger, lesbian cliché… railing against her lot through poetry. Barbara is rubbish, but she doesn’t know it.” VICE Magazine.
