“The View from Over The Hill” is a one woman show, written and performed by Flloyd (with 2 Ells) Kennedy, and available to tour from 30 May 2020, as an entertainment, and with optional workshops.
Aussie-born singer-songwriter-performance poet Flloyd (with 2 Ells) Kennedy may be pushing into her eighth decade but this old lady certainly knows a thing or two. With two ukuleles and a kazoo, her collection of amusing songs and poems draws on her avalanche of memories from a life uproariously lived and wryly observed, taking comic stabs at the world around her which, quite frankly, seems to have lost the plot.
No subject is too random. Pot plants, the apocalypse, Facebook, a paeon to Liverpool’s weather: there’s little that Flloyd’s gentle clown can’t set to poetry or music, her witty ramblings borne from the benefit of hindsight as she now limps down the other side of life’s hill.
Prepare for an eclectic show that’s authentic, funny and shoots straight from the heart. And if you don’t believe us, here’s what recent audiences thought:
“Congratulations, Flloyd, such a fine variety of voices packed into one hour of pure entertainment!”
“U know when you’ve been ‘uked’ – straight to the quick and straight from the heart – incisive, heartfelt, and tingly fun.”
“It made me both laugh and cry and was very honest too.”
Flloyd has been performing from the age of 6, and teaching and coaching performers, public speakers, students and business executives from the age of 40. “The View from Over-The-Hill” is available as a solo performance, and also with accompanying workshops to facilitate song and poetry writing and spoken word expression. Contact Flloyd directly for more details.
Songs from Flloyd’s other solo show, “Yes! Because.. the Songs” are available on CD, as well as online via Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Google Play, Deezer and other streaming services. Songs from “The View from Over The Hill” will be released in the new year.
“The View from Over The Hill” will be at the Brighton Fringe from 14th to 20th May., performing Upstairs in the Temple Bar.
and at the cornerHOUSE Theatre, Surbiton, Surrey on 29th May!
We are also looking to tour the project to small scale venues, pubs, community centres etc.
