Wife Material
  • Brighton Fringe

Sophia and Heleana Blackwell are a married stand-up comedy and poetry duo. Together, they turn the archetypal lesbian 'urge to merge' into an evening of rambunctious (and sometimes highly conflicting) anecdotes about their lives together. Sophia is a performance poet with three published collections of poetry and one novel. She has been anthologised by Bloodaxe, Nine Arches, and the Emma Press. For two years, she hosted the LGBT+ radio show Out in South London on Resonance FM, and she co-hosts and produces The Polari Podcast with Paul Burston. Her first non-fiction book will be published by Bloomsbury in Autumn 2022. "A stone genius poet" (Laurie Penny)Heleana performs observational LGBTQ-friendly comedy at top venues across London including 21Soho, The Seven Dials Club, Blacks Club, Battersea Arts Centre and The Apple Tree. Recent wins: Comedy Virgins, and Rising Stars, both in September 2021."Heleana is incredibly funny and an absolute joy to watch on stage" (Maria Shehata)

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.
