Easter got me thinking about eggs; not just the ones covered in foil (yum) but the ones I have inside me, too.
Prepare yourself for a night unlike any other; this show will haul you onto your feet and make you weak at the knees, and leave you wanting more, more, more, more!
Yes, I know it's hard to believe I'm posting something that isn't a theatre review or a poem (#onbrand) but the time has come once again to share a few of my favourite things from the last month of my life.
The Comedy About a Bank Robbery does what it says on the tin – it's a comedy show involving a bank robbery – but that's where the simplicity stops. This production is an incredibly clever and witty tonic to the chaos and seriousness of real life at the moment, and an escape from the drudgery filling our newsfeeds.
Jersey Boys has swaggered onto the stage at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre, ready to transport us back to the sixties; to the heyday of classic rock ''n roll and the giants of the airwaves.
"The thing is, I know I want to make something of myself and work hard doing so; but as what, I don’t know. I have ambition, but that ambition is not defined."
This haiku was inspired by an admission I made while chatting to friends recently. Brutal? Maybe. Efficient? Definitely.
After a long old January, February was short and, admittedly, sweet. I was back in the theatre a few times, read a few books and went on a mini adventure in London. I found a few new favourites along the way, so as usual, here's a list to share and hopefully inspire.

A short-but-sweet poem written especially for World Book Day.
