POWER LINES: WORDS AT WORK
  • Adelaide Fringe

Join OLD JACK, the Aussie Gleeman, for your renewable energy " high voltage, low emissions, clean and efficient, ample storage, no blackouts (we all hope). While you explore with him the right word for the right occasion " give me your word, word for word, word of mouth, a play on words, the tyranny of words, your favourite four-letter word, even the word of god and many more " experience the power of his stories, old and new, from far and wide, in poetry and prose " tales to delight, entertain, enlighten and energize you. For remember always, a word in the head is worth two in the book.Or, as Sir Lancelot might have said "Ive never lost in contest or game, Im simply the best by far,When words are tossed, tis always the same, one verse and au revoir."

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
