So, life in lockdown has cooled our ardour a bit recently! On the Provocations page of our website you will find  more information about our most recent production - Flotsam! (see above) which was last performed in January 2020.  Since then, members of our collective have been performing all over the world at online slams and other gigs, from New Zealand to New York and New Brighton (OK - we lied about New Brighton!).Watch out for us if you happen to sign up for an online spoken word event in your 'hood.


By the way, one of us even managed to get married in Gibraltar - it's amazing what people get up to when your back is turned!


Meanwhile, like so many organisations in the cultural sector, our work is paused due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Normally, news of our new show would be posted up here but it isn't! That does not mean we are not busy behind the scenes, making all kinds of plans for 2021 and beyond. We have been busy - Mark appearing in a TV advert alongside co-hosting one of the best online events of the past year - Poetry from the Grassroots. His co-host, Steve has seen his Faber published novel 'Child I' translated into even more languages. Sabina is teaching nervous would-be pilots how to fly and Isabel has been busy writing; this has borne fruit in terms of her first collection since 2014 - Scallywag, 70 ekphrastic poems on music, art and literature.  An image of the cover is shown on the publications page.


Want to buy a copy of Scallywag? Price including postage and packing is £10. Payment can be made via PayPal - email us at


In the meantime, how about revisiting past glories while we prepare for our next show, which we promise will be even more exciting than the last!
