A funny, delicate and imaginative show by Dominic Berry, champion of New York's Nuyorican Poetry Cafe slam and Manchester Literature Festival's Superheroes of Slam.
"Really very inspiring. I love the seriousness and the humour.”
Benjamin Zephaniah, Poet
“From the moment he started to speak we were totally captivated- the incredible way he uses words, the expression and energy of the delivery and the subject matter made him irresistible.”
City Life Magazine
“He is one of Manchester’s finest poets of the stage. Fearless in his engagement with a wide variety of issues, his public works exhibit the same exuberance of spirit that mark him out as a person.”
Pete Kalu, Artistic Director, Commonword
“Dominic is an exceptional force in the poetry and spoken word scene in the North West, who is also starting to have an impact in theatre. I am always impressed by his desire and determination to push beyond his comfort zone and write work that will challenge himself and his audience.”
John McGrath, Artistic Director, National Theatre Wales
