A QUEER GIRL'S GUIDE TO TWILIGHT - AUGUST 2021

The 2008 Cinematic masterpiece Twilight taught me everything I know about love. 

From 2008- 2011 I was utterly obsessed with the vampire romance. The books carried me through my first kiss, loosing my virginity and secretly wishing at night that I wouldn't turn out gay. 

A Queer Girl's Guide to Twilight was a semi-autobiographical performance about teenage obsession, romance, compulsory heteronormativity and internalised homophobia. 

It was a letter of love, support and forgiveness to 14 year old Kirsten. This piece was performed as part of Femmes Uncut in Maryhill, Glasgow.

 

HOW TO EAT A GRAND - JANUARY 2020

I constantly say I'm just bad with money and that's why I'm always so skint. I was never taught money so I don't budget or save but between 2018 and 2019 I took it too far. I bottomed out my overdraft within a few months - over £1000 in debt and I had no idea how I did it. 

Spoiler: I ate it. 

How to Eat a Grand was a small 10 minute piece about the lack financial education in Schools and a compulsion to online shop.

NOTHING COMPARES 2 EDWARD - OCTOBER 2019

Cabaret Performance - Lady Bits - 21/10/19
Unrequited Love is so hard. It's even harder when the person you love is actually a fictional vampire written for preteens. 

I'm in love with Edward Cullen, he's over 100 but I don't care. I'm 25 but I don't care. He's perfect. And not at all a creepy stalker with serious boundary issues. 

He doesn't know I exist. But, I guess that's because he doesn't exist. This is a very complicated love affair. 

Nothing Compares 2 Edward was a ten minute cabaret piece created for LADY BITS, hosted by SPITTING FEATHERS in 2019.
