Live Shows

Come to the launch of ‘Hamlet is Not OK’ – the story of a 16-year-old girl who gets busted for not doing her homework (this bit may be slightly autobiographical). When her tutor makes her read Hamlet out loud – they are sucked into the play. She meets Hamlet, realises he is totally messed-up and tries to help him solve his problems. And she has some really strange solutions.

I will be performing a reading from the book, telling stories about how I came up with the ideas and signing books after the show. Books will be available for purchase
