How I Came To be Where I Never Was
How do you find yourself when you find yourself where you don’t belong?
Jonny Fluffypunk grew up in outer-suburban nowhere. In 1984, he was fifteen.
This is a story about being the first punk in the village and the only trainspotter in eyeliner. About unrequited love and the forgotten gods of small record shops. About making your own myth, putting yourself on the map and a million tiny everyday epiphanies.
This is lo-fi stand-up spoken word theatre for anyone who has listened to John Peel under the covers, or fallen in love, or just been alive.
“a little work of genius”
“haphazard but utterly lovable coming of age story”
“a brilliant, hilarious and charismatic performer”

Very Specific Things
Strange things are happening in the village. Over a late 90’s summer our unlikely hero turns detective. While the rest of the country are thinking about sheep cloning, Lady Di’s new romance and whether Teletubbies are taking over the world, she will confront the truth, in more ways than one.
A work-in-progress extract from a show about living in a small community, being bored and accepting that you are weird.
As the show is not yet finished there are no guarantees, but you may encounter 90s hits, dinosaurs, strange customers in the village shop and a garden gnome vandal on the loose.
