Not a Séance @ Manchester University

I was in Manchester working for TiPP teaching drama students who are studying Applied Theatre. They are all going to do a project in a prison, so it made sense for them to see an example of something that had been performed in a prison. A few Manchester based folk came along too and we had an audience of around twenty-five in the studio at The Martin Harris Centre on Thursday 2nd October. Here are the public potatoes from the performance.

I particularly enjoyed the questions in this performance, which  included queries about the potato’s South American origins and concerns about my relationship with the potatoes and possible dependency issues. A piece of feedback that I really valued was from Janet Batsleer, who is Principal Lecturer in Youth and Community work at MMU, who said that she enjoyed that the piece was “affectionate and kind”.
