Funny poetry & song from Fran Isherwood
“A wry, awry , word-playful gallop through the vagaries of life encountering mail stealing snails, lollipop ladies, scissor happy surgeons and tripe shops en route.”

“Decidedly surreal…Benjamin’s characters are inventive and delightful…deeply engaging, original characters… somewhere between character comedy and performance art…” FringeGuru. Claire Benjamin is a one woman powerhouse who brings a touch of glamour to any evening

Molly Pharo is a performance artist, musician and writer and Artistic Director of Magic Maverick. She brings “Shipwrecked” a piece of performance poetry that breaks boundaries between artist and audience. Molly grew up belting her way through musical theatre productions (she has been known to blow toupees clean off the heads of unsuspecting balding men sitting far too close for comfort) until the age of 18 where she nurtured her fondness for monsters by training to work as a makeup artist (and wig maker- potentially to repent her days of bald shaming) for films and theatre.

Daniel Hunt and Selina Mosinski are Nottingham based artists and performers.
