Presented as part of Tellit – the UK's first ever festival of true-life storytelling
Come in, kick back, take your shoes off, or keep them on, have a cuppa and make yourselves comfy. This intimate and autobiographical coming-of-age tale by spoken word artist and writer Paul Cree is set in his bedsit amongst the books, tapes and comics of his youth. Leaving the mundane monotony of his hometown for the bright lights of Brighton, a new job and his first love, the world seems bigger somehow. This is a witty and honest tale that reminds us of our own journeys, mistakes and joys. More about Paul: Paul is a writer and performer who likes to write about the day-to-day and his environment around him. Tea, lager, football and staring aimlessly out of the window are among some of his favourite things. He's performed his work at festivals and venues such as Latitude, Bestival, Edinburgh Fringe, Ronnie Scott’s, Tate Britain, Roundhouse and Battersea Arts Centre. In 2013, he wrote and performed his first solo show A Tale From The Bedsit and in 2015 he co-wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed No Milk For The Foxes play at Camden People’s Theatre. He also released a collection of audio stories entitled The 90 Sick EP. He is currently working on a new storytelling project entitled the C/D Borderline. All ticket holders will be subject to a £1.50 membership charge for the Canal Cafe Theatre on the door, if they are not already a member. Subject to the theatre's terms and conditions.
“His storytelling was thoroughly engaging, layered with experience and iced with wit. I was hungry for more.”
