John Hegley returns to the SJT with a delightful familiy show full of songs, drawings and poems.
John Hegley Presents
Written by John Hegley
Price: From £10, Poetry 3 for 2
John Hegley is an interactive lyricist with 30 years experience at the Edinburgh Fringe, where some years ago he was nominated for the Comedy Award, but it's not just joking.
An exuberance of songs, drawings and poems and baroque dance steps with material encompassing furniture, fig rolls, fisher-birds and a trip to Rotherham Library.
The show draws on the audience's singing and movement potential and upon pieces in the book of this name, in which reside the author's family alongside John Keats, Giacometti and some Daleks.
If you're familiar with John Hegley, you'll already know what to expect. If you're not, enjoying his droll, deadpan and yet utterly charming manner is the ideal way to spend an evening.

"one of the joys of sitting in a Hegley show for families, is wataching his cross-generational appeal in action. Whether it's at his ludicrous drawings, silly join-in songs, or clever and unexpectedly structured poems, he hits the spot with all ages and brings in the laughs"
