This Script – Jenny Lindsay
Online sales for this event have now closed. Tickets will be available for purchase on the door.
One of Scotland’s leading spoken word poets brings the world premiere of her newest show This Script to Norwich. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Jenny Lindsay uses spoken word poetry performance to explore key questions in sexual politics, gender, feminism and the culture wars.
As an acclaimed performer, Jenny has appeared across the UK and internationally at a variety of festivals and events including Latitude and the Edinburgh International Book Festival. The Scotsman described her work as ‘Defiant. Eloquent. Inspiring.’
Suitable for ages 14+.
‘One of Scotland’s leading spoken word poets…Lindsay’s new poetry wades into deep, turbulent and perhaps uncomfortably contemporary waters’ – The Herald
‘A distinctive voice. Full of fire and passion’ – Scottish Review of Books
