7:30pm A NOVEMBERFEST PERFORMANCE
Jonny Fluffypunk grew up in suburban nowhere. In 1984, he was fifteen. This is a story about trying to find yourself, when you find yourself somewhere you don’t belong. It's about unrequited love, John Peel and the importance of a good record shop. It’s about being the first punk in the village, and also about trains and memory and letting go. This is a new lo-fi stand-up spoken word theatre show for anyone who has ever loved, owned a vinyl record or just been alive.
Produced in partnership with Strike A Light and supported by Bristol Old Vic’s ‘Ferment’ programme.
‘If you’ve ever had a teenage crush or been spellbound by the magic of a beat-up vinyl, you would be crazy to miss this performance’- Epigram, Bristol
Things the public are saying:
‘A little work of genius’
‘Sparking life at a tremendous rate’
‘A wonderfully chaotic, moving piece of theatre’
‘Brilliant, evocative, eloquent’
Jonny Fluffypunk is a writer and performer who has been dragging his art around the spoken word and alternative cabaret circuits for over 15 years. A regular at gigs and festivals across the country, he has previously toured his show Man Up, Jonny Fluffypunk: One Man’s Struggle With Late Onset Responsibility to over sixty venues as disparate as Leicester Square Theatre, a village church and a railway goods shed in a flagrant championing of homespun DIY culture. Jonny has two volumes of writing out with Burning Eye Books.
Supported by POETS ON THE HILL
