Who Do You Think You Are? Barbara Brownskirt.
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Barbara Brownskirt, the prolific poet-in-residence at 197 bus stop, Penge, semi-welcomes you to her thought-provoking and unsettling knee-length poetry comedy show. Charting Barbara's life as an unsuccessful poet in 21st-century Britain, Barbara takes the language of feminism and lesbian clich and creates an anarchic pathos-filled experience. Themes such as failing, the Dunning-Kruger effect in art (where persons of low ability suffer from illusory superiority), Freudian mother-love and a Judi Dench obsession run throughout. 'Indefatigable, prolific and utterly unpublishable' (VICE). 'I absolutely pissed myself' (Lucy McCormick).
