Everyone writes instructions to their future selves – but what if the future starts writing back?
Rosy Carrick has to build a time machine – because her future self has already done so and is now stuck 100 years in the past. Given that her knowledge of quantum physics is limited to the works of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rosy must summon the help of science’s greatest minds if she is to rewrite history and save herself…
Darting playfully between multiple narratives, this complex and emotional performance explores the realities of time travel and self-determination – taking in Bowie, motherhood and some most heinous hangovers along the way.
Winner of Brighton Fringe’s Best New Play Award 2018 and The Infallibles Award for Theatrical Excellence, Passionate Machineis a hilarious and searingly honest story about obsession, salvation and finding yourself – literally.

Based out of a tragic mustard coloured 1979 campervan, East-Yorkshire, Crooked Weather play rock infused folk music. The sound is lead by carefully crafted lyrics delivered by the lilting harmonies of Holly and Will. Their original music, although steeped in the folk revival of the 60’s and 70’s, has a raw, modern edge and is augmented by fierce rhythms and syncopated cello.
With a new album in tow, due for release in Spring 2019, Crooked Weather are keeping up their fuzz folk momentum with choice live shows and strong single releases.
“Crooked Weather come from the same fertile ground which gave the world David Crosby’s immortal If I Could Only Remember My Name. They are indie meets World music meets traditional British folk. Think a contemporary Incredible String Band with a 21st century mindset or the acoustic side of Led Zeppelin.”
– Sid Griffin (Bob Dylan Biographer // BBC Radio 6 Music)

Kate Smurthwaite: Clit Stirrer
Kate Smurthwaite finally tells us what she really thinks
The award-winning feminist, atheist, polyamorous comedian and writer for Have I Got News For You, puts away all those years of coquettishness and gets off the fence.
Kate has sworn, flashed her hairy armpits at Eamonn Holmes, shown up in pyjamas, called a Daily Mail columnist “Dad” and shouted at a nun all on live TV. That’s when she’s not insulting organised religion or the monarchy. But is she the one with the problem? Lots of angry men with very poor grammar on the internet think so.
She’s actually a nice quiet homely sort. In her new one-woman show, Kate lifts the lid on her reputation as a provocatrice extraordinaire and asks: where did it all go wrong?
Kate has appeared on Question Time, The Big Questions, The Moral Maze, This Morning, BBC News, Sky News, Woman’s Hour, Good Morning Britain, The Nolan Show, The Jeremy Vine Show, Afternoon Edition and Newsnight. She was a 2013 ThreeWeeks Editors’ Choice award winner at the Edinburgh Fringe (where they referred to her as a ‘Fringe Institution’) and is a writer for the UK’s most popular political comedy show Have I Got News For You? and BBC3’s BAFTA-winning The Revolution Will Be Televised. She writes a regular humourous column for New Internationalist magazine and has also had columns in The Daily Mirror, The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph, Cosmopolitan and Stylist.
“There are no airs or graces about Kate Smurthwaite…she is gloriously mobile as she stalks the stage, mind and mouth effortlessly working in a whirlwind of ideas and joke lines.” – The Morning Star
“One of the wittiest gun-slingers I’ve ever seen on stage” – The Spectator
“An important and inclusive narrative on our society” – ScotsGay
“The verve with which she articulates her views on our land is monumental” – BroadwayBaby.com

‘A one woman show, exploring how music can help us survive’
Empty Room is about a family held together by music. Onstage a jazz singer talks about her daughter and sings about her lover. Backstage a sax player rants about art and addiction, and coping with fatherhood in between. And in a classroom, an idealistic teenager (over)shares her passion for Dmitri Shostakovich and the importance of music in times of trouble.
In different places and times, they speak about truth, art, love and trauma. Semi-autobiographical, Empty Room uses live song, intertwined monologues and a violin concerto to explore how music can free us; revealing hidden depths in order to survive in times when we need it most
Created by Miriam Gould with Dramaturgy by Alex Scott (Little Bulb Theatre) Empty Room was developed over a number of years from biographical material and original music from Miriam’s jazz musician parents, saxophonist Sal Nistico and singer Rachel Gould. Sal Nistico (Count Basie, Dizzie Gillespie, Buddy Rich) was known for his speed and articulation as a soloist and was lead tenor in the Woody Herman Big Band in the early 1960’s after which he became more of a bebop/hardbop player. Rachel Gould (Michel Graillier, Benny Bailey) still tours the world and is the last singer alive to have recorded with Chet Baker.
