Geezer Bird

2/23/2024
Erotophobe ladette Sammy (24) is unexpectedly thrown on-air under the mononym 'Angelique', where she naively takes on the persona of an audio dominatrix. Set in the late 1990s with ladette culture in full swing, and the pre #metoo assumption that all young women are obsessed with sex, this semi-autobiographical audio drama from Tash Desborough hits a zeitgeist nerve, and questions misogyny in the workplace and assumed attitudes on sex and sexiness. Suitable for adult audiences 18+ Trigger warnings - Depiction and talk of experiencing indecent exposure, panic attacks, anxiety, sex addiction.

October 2019: environmental protests are erupting all across London. Extinction Rebellion protesters have blocked roads, glued themselves to aeroplanes and banks, and taken over Trafalgar Square.

Ground Up by Fiona Glen Fiona Glen is an emerging writer and artist from Edinburgh, based in London. Her writing has been published in various periodicals and anthologies, and she has read at the London Science Museum and galleries across London.
