'But I Haven't Finished Yet!'

Ends: 29 Jun 2024

We are all growing older and most of us don’t like it! But since we can’t do anything to change it, why not laugh?

Join poet Brenda Read-Brown on a riotous celebration of growing older. In her fantasies she is an imprisoned pensioner who rescues fellow passengers from crashed aeroplanes. In reality, she is a bit of a hoarder who likes Greek islands. Along the way we encounter a range of seemingly random things. And you’ll discover why Brenda’s final words will definitely be “But I haven’t finished yet!” A show to delight and entertain, however advanced in life the audience may be. Mostly funny but with some poignant moments. Not suitable for children.

In 2001 Brenda gave up a secure career as a project manager to be a poet. Since then she has performed her poetry on Radio 4, the House of Lords, and any number of ‘low dives’. She was Gloucestershire Poet Laureate from 2012 – 2019 but says she gets her greatest rewards by helping other people find their words.
