I’m very excited to announce that my Edinburgh Fringe show ‘Two Little Ducks’ is now on sale here. The show runs at Underbelly Cowgate from 3-27 August, and is my first full run at the festival.
As with 2015’s ‘Matt Abbott is Skint & Demoralised’, it’s a one-man spoken word poetry show with no staging or props. ‘Two Little Ducks’ extends on my usual blend of socio-political commentary and kitchen sink realism, to explore some key themes.
From council estates to the Calais Jungle, Abbott uses razor-sharp wit, storytelling and linguistic flair to present this deeply personal and political show. Humorous and harrowing, celebratory and confrontational; a vital poetic journey for 2017. Native to a city that voted 66% leave, Abbott uses socio-political commentary and kitchen-sink realism to illuminate and explore the chaos behind Brexit.
From the aftermath of the Thatcher years to overnight pie shops and MegaBus marathons, this is poetry for the underdog from one of our leading new voices. A warm, engaging, vital and visceral spoken word experience.
The show is being co-produced by Norwich Arts Centre. For PR enquiries, contact Stephen Forster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
