Previews Tour

A lot of Big Things have happened this month. And you know how Big Things sit on your reality and timescales a bit like the metaphorical orange on a plastic sheet of astrophysics? Well among other things a date I have been looking at from the ‘before’ of for three years suddenly now is in the ‘after’. I totally passed my viva and am now Dr Hannah. Yep, that’s right. Officially now have more letters after my name than in it (BA (Hons), MPhil(b), PhD), small corrections to make for the 1st of January, but otherwise DOCTOR. Which, it turns out, is just a word. And I’m still the same. Still earn substantially less than the minimum income standard, still go on earnest but overly simplistic rants on twitter, still sway to the same procrastination and worries. And speaking of worries. One of them is that it turns out that ‘after’ viva time contain a lot of ‘almost previews tour for A Conversation With My Father’ time.


So, while my job is to re-learn all of the lines and directions, your job, dear readers, is to PLEASE COME TO THEM!

What is it? Let’s ask the Ctrl+V Fairy!

A Conversation With My Father

Made in collaboration with Alex Kelly

This is a true story.

This is a story about Them. A story about Us. A story about my dad – a retired policeman – and me, a protestor. About fear, bravery, being kettled, Superted, the Lone Ranger, policing the people in front of you, and being sent out of class. It’s about working out what matters, and standing up to protect it.

It’s about me, and my Dad.

There are also some jokes in it. Because serious things are worth laughing at a little bit.

Mentored and supported by Third Angel. Supported with public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, ARC Stockton and Theatre in the Mill. Additional support from Embrace Arts and Sheffield Theatres.


It’s going to be doing previews in three cities beginning with ‘L’, because that’s how I rolll. NEED MORE VISUAL STIMULATION? There’s a trailer at the bottom. Scrolll.
