You just can’t keep a good woman down

Especially if she’s Dame June Bloom, “Australia’s favourite ukulele playing Shakespearean grandma”!

After the success of our mini-tour to Scotland last month, we’ve been offered a spot at the cornerHOUSE Theatre, Surbiton in Surrey, on 23rd November.

Here’s what our Scottish audiences thought:

Edinburgh, 21st September…

“Congratulations, Flloyd on your great show in Edinburgh. Such a fine variety of voices packed into one hour of pure entertainment! ”

Westruther, Scottish Borders, on 20th September…

“Fabby!”

“U know when you’ve been ‘uked’ – straight to the quick and straight from the heart – incisive, heartfelt, and tingly fun.”

“It was a great night and we really enjoyed ourselves – power to your elbow””Very enlightening”

“Great show – good variety”

‘Very entertaining – lots of variety to the show – it made me both laugh and cry and was very honest too. Would highly recommend Yes! Because… to anyone with a love of music, Shakespeare or the brutal honesty of life in general.’

FEEDBACK FROM THE VOICE WORKSHOP:

‘Really interesting and quite exhilarating’

‘very intelligent & knowledgeable workshop leader’

So join us in Surbiton, for another episode in the June Bloom saga – I mean adventure!

New London Dates

TMT will be in London in February, as well as April, so get your diaries out and make a note!

On 14th February, we’ll present a staged reading of Marcel Dorney’s wonderful re-telling of the story of Hypatia, female philosopher and defender of the Library of Alexandria. You know the one – the bigots and the fundamentalists burnt it down, back in the day. So, not much has changed, and this is a play for our times. The play is called “Fractions” and this will be its UK Premiere.

We could do with a few more volunteer performers, this is a mission of love to encourage and inspire ourselves in these dark times.

The reading will be presented at the Bread and Roses Theatre, 68 Clapham Manor Road, London on 14th February at around 7.30 pm. Contact me if you’d like to take part. As long as you can read, you are welcome.

At United Solo Theatre Festival, Theatre Row, New York NY 2016

And then, Dame June Bloom will hit the ground running after her triumphant appearance off off Broadway (or was that off off off off…) in her hit solo show, “Yes! Because…”. Bread and Roses Theatre, as above, from 4 to 8 April, 7.30 pm.

Another Moment

Dame June has escaped!  She was last spotted in Liverpool, in disguise, but a fan recognised her and sent in some video of her performing at an Open Mic session in the Baltic Triangle.
