How (not) to Live in Suburbia by Annie Siddons

Presented by Mayfest 2018

“Who the Fuck are you?”

“I’m the Walrus of Loneliness. Let me in.”

A few years ago in the middle of a shitstorm of life events, single mother, artist and proud Londoner Annie Siddons found herself living in suburbia by accident. This show is a hilarious, brutal and poignant attempt to describe what happened next.

On Monday 14th there will be a free post show Q and A with Annie and members of the company chaired by Amy Perrin from the Marmalade Trust, a Bristol based charity that aims to tackle loneliness "one spoon at a time”. https://marmaladetrust.org/.

Performed by Annie Siddons and Sarah Moore.

With films by Richard DeDomenici.

Directed by Justin Audibert and Nicki Hobday.

Annie Siddons is a Londoner, writer, performer and musician.
Her work is funny, brutal, honest and poignant, embracing the mythic and the mundane, and always has narrative and music at its root and heart.

★★★★★ “Subtle, sincere, riotously funny and endearingly raw.” – Broadway Baby

★★★★ “Heartbreaking Autobiographical performance.” – FestMag

“Highly Recommended!” – Alan Davies on my Radar, Observer

Lyn Gardner’s Picks of the Week, Guardian.

Annie has appeared on Radio 4’s Midweek with Libby Purves and on TV on Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled.
