Peace, Love & Potatoes by John Hegley

Saturday 13th November 2021 – 7.30pm

John Hegley is widely known as one of the country’s most innovative comic poets with several best-selling volumes of poetry to his name.

the show is one of family portraits:

my Folies Bergère dancing French grandmother

my papier maché modelling father

and my irritating brother-in-law

alongside D. H. Lawrence’s tortoise

John Keats’s vegetables

geologist Florence Bascomb’s dog

and some cardboard crabs

with sideways-moving eyeballs.

 

Includes mandolin-playing and and rhyming language.

 

Devised for adults

but of interest to the odd nine-year-old

 

John will be leading a workshop on the afternoon of 13th November at The Pelican, Chew Magna. For details and to book a place please click the link.

John Hegley is a regular sell-out at The Edinburgh Festival. He has performed at the Montreal Comedy Festival, the USA Comedy Festival in Aspen, with Ulrika Jonsson & Anita Dobson in The Pyjama Game and on BBC R4’s Hearing With Hegley.

 

Currently we are asking that all audience members, unless exempt, wear a mask during the performance for the safety and comfort of all other ticket holders, performers and Valley Arts volunteers.
