🎙️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.

On the Road Again


It’s September already, and I’m back in the rehearsal room with Dame June Bloom, Teddy Edward and Liam the Lamb. We’ve been invited by Live Arts, in the Scottish Borders, to bring the show to their local community, in the tiny village of Westruther.

One night only, Friday 20th September, we’ll be there! Also delighted to be able to offer a workshop on Friday afternoon, open to all comers.

My stage manager for this wee tour is Susannah Finzi, who wrote and directed “The Bottom Line” in July, at the cornerHOUSE Theatre in Surbiton, and invited me to take part in it, creating the role of The Busker.

The Busker.

Our plan is to meet up in York, (from London and Liverpool) where we both have to change trains, carry on together to Berwick-upon-Tweed, then we’ll be met and driven to Westruther.

On Saturday 21st we are hoping to head to Edinburgh, to perform the show at the Columcille centre. This is unfunded, so we are mounting a fund-raising campaign to help cover our travel and accommodation costs. With any luck, we’ll also have an audience!
