One day, a magpie comes into a little girl’s house by mistake. It decides it likes her. She spends the next twenty-five years trying to get away from it.
Stop Trying to be Fantastic is a story about suffering, adventure, saviour-complex, acceptance, and a magpie who refuses to quit.
From award-winning writer/performer Molly Naylor (Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You, Sky One’s After Hours) comes this lyrical and funny spoken-word show that explores what we owe to each other and what we owe to ourselves. It’s an anti self-help show… that might actually help.
‘Brave, funny, tough and beautiful writing’ - the Guardian
New live show: STOP TRYING TO BE FANTASTIC
Produced in association with Inn Crowd.
Co-commissioned by Norwich Arts Centre.
