★★★★★ EVERYTHING THEATRE          ★★★★★ THE AWKWARD CORNER         ★★★★ THE SKINNY      ★★★★ THE WEE REVIEW ★★★★ SPY IN THE STALLS

Lost in the bliss of foreign travel, Imogen succumbs to the spoils of Western privilege. Dangerous politicians prevail, fake news is king and social media sympathy pours in for Western terror victims, yet backs turn on the migrant crisis. What staggering hypocrisy.

#Hypocrisy is the debut show by Scottish performance poet Imogen Stirling. Fusing a modern take on poetry with an original supporting music score, whip-cracking with energy and dark humour, it unsettles in order to encourage change.

Somewhat Awkward is proud to present Imogen in Australia and in London in 2020 at:

★★★★★ ‘Life-affirming artistry, restores the faith of even the most downtrodden socialist in the audience.’ (Everything Theatre)

★★★★★ ‘The most exquisite pace, melodic poetry that all will relate to.’ (The Awkward Corner)

★★★★ ‘Highly nuanced, delicate yet powerful phrasing.’ (Spy In The Stalls)

★★★★ ‘Stirling is gripping in her own right, moving around the small stage with ease while never missing a beat. Her words are sharp, smart and most importantly kind.’ (The Skinny)

★★★★ ‘The earnest quality of the script and the passionate, intense delivery of the words make #Hypocrisy feel worthwhile and poignant.’ (The Wee Review)

‘I highly recommend Imogen Stirling’s wonderfully worded show, #Hypocrisy. An immersive mediation on those aspects of reality we conveniently turn blind eyes to’ (Darren McGarvey)
