Celebrate the best of spoken word at The Roundhouse
Featuring the best of poetry, storytelling and live performance, The Last Word Festival returns to The Roundhouse (one of the world's most incredible live performance venues) for another year. The festival showcases the best talent in spoken word, from the genre's trailblazers to rising stars and everything in between. Get ready to be amused, moved and lexically delighted by the best wordsmiths around. Would the world be a better place if we were all honest? Award-winning writer and performer Katie Bonna is doing a TED talk on our passion for dishonesty and the science of lies. Sort of. TED haven’t actually asked her to do one – yet. From tricking her sister into drinking her wee to monstrous infidelities, Katie charts her family history to confront our fibs. Part talk, part poetry, part comedy – mostly lies. The show takes place in the Dorfman Hub at The Roundhouse. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
“Katie Bonna puts in a simply dazzling performance.”
