My good friends, those Aussie doyennes of daring-do, The Crackup Sisters, are sharing some simple exercises to do at home during the current crisis. Of course, they are fabulous acrobat-clowns, and I wouldn’t dream of trying to match their skill level, but Teddy Edward and I will always try to do our very best. (Find @TheCrackupSisters on Facebook to see the original version).
This one, The Chair, is to build muscle tone to support the immune system.
The ladies have promises more exercises to come. Teddy Edward can’t wait!
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…
“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.’
So near and yet so far… We’ve been invited to bring the show to Edinburgh on 21st September, but need to raise the funds to cover our costs (travel, accommodation, publicity) – around £250 would do it.
So I’ve instigated a campaign to sell tickets in advance, £10 each. And for anyone who wants to support us, but can’t get to Edinburgh to see the show there, I’m offering advance downloads of the newly recorded Songs from the show, £10 per download. There are 6 tracks, with 7 songs in the folder.
Release date for the recorded songs to go on sale online with iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play and all the other sites that go in for that sort of things is – 29th August. But you can get them before that, and help Susannah (my stage manage) and I to get from Westruther to Edinburgh and home again!

Yes! Because… on tour
“Yes, Because is a not-to-be-missed poetic, charming and unique piece of theatre. Flloyd Kennedy has a wholly engaging presence and the humility and honestly of her clown-like creation June Bloom is a delight! Heart-warming and moving in equal measure, this piece is a real gem!”
