🎙️Flloyd Kennedy, an Australian-born, Liverpool based poet, performer, voice and acting coach in her late 70s, has created the comic-audio-drama Am I Old Yet?, a series of self-contained vignettes in which a character named Helen, who is also in her late 70s, adjusts to the reality of ageing with dignity, honesty and joy. Helen engages in conversation with members of her family and friends in a way that makes you feel along for the ride, invited to hear a perspective that is often overlooked in podcasting. What do I keep saying about poets being the best podcasters, you guys? These are beautiful pieces that deal with deep and intimate thoughts we’ll all be confronting sooner or later. Listen here.

Rhetorical question, because the past two years, mixing almost full time teaching with the occasional touring gig has been wonderful, full of amazing experiences, working with talented young theatre artists, alongside some extraordinary teachers.  So – farewell, and thanks for all that.

Now, I’m back on the road, just me and my backpack, Dame June’s suitcase with the ukulele and Teddy Edward for company.  Our little company has been expanded, as Liam the Lamb joined us in Dublin last year, on our way to the United Solo Festival in New York.  He doesn’t have any lines in the show yet, but it won’t be long. He’s very keen.

Looking forward to sharing the adventure at a venue near you some time soon.
