Newcastle’s Rowan McCabe and Oxford’s Tina Sederholm join forces to bring you their two hit Edinburgh Fringe shows for the price of one!
In Door-to-Door Poetry: Nationwide Rowan sets out on a journey across England, knocking on strangers’ doors and offering to write them poems, for free, on any subject of their choosing. It’s a bit like the Avon lady, except with rhymes.

Through this bold and arguably stupid act, he is trying to find out what matters to people, what the state of our nation is, and if strangers are as scary as they’re made out to be. But as March 2020 approaches, world events push the project in a very different direction…
‘Ingenious’ – BBC Radio Scotland

‘Highly recommended show’ – FringeReview

‘Absolutely riveting’ – Attila the Stockbroker

In This is Not Therapy, Tina Sederholm is halfway through her fifties when she realises that life is not all about winning big trophies. But if our achievements aren’t the measure of a good life, then what is? Accompany her as she rifles through classic films, popular culture and her own misdemeanours to see if she can discover the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything in under 55 minutes.

Join these two popular performers for a funny and thought-provoking mix of theatre and poetry in two heart-warming shows that suggest a bold rethinking of our relationships with ourselves and those around us.
