Platform8 & Apples and Snakes Scratch Night

Platform8 present three local Peterborough-based poets to flex their performance muscles and try out pieces of new material in front of a live audience.

Apples and Snakes present a scratch performance of Helen Highwater, the new solo show from Helen Seymour.

Helen Seymour is struggling to keep her head above water. She has weak muscles, screws in her spine and can’t stop thinking about creative ways to commit murder. Her therapist has put her on the Potentially Dangerous Persons list, her tarot reader thinks she needs an exorcism, and the boys she’s dating wonder why she keeps getting distracted. She’s not sure she can be trusted; she needs you to watch her.

Directed by Hannah Silva, this funny and very dark second solo show tackles dating, violent intrusive thoughts and what happens when the only representation of your body you can find…is in horror movies.

‘Helen is a mad genius and her words are like a warm bath’ – Caroline Bird
