    Hot on the heels of our Wednesday WORD!s with Kat Lyons - join them for this glorious thing down Upstairs at the Western. It's been getting amazing reviews on its way across the country - hope to see you there! Here's some more about it...

    Menopause? Seriously? WTF?

    Kat thought they were far too young to worry about menopause; biology thought differently. Now their hormones are going haywire, their diary is full of NHS visits and sleep is a distant memory. Join Kat on a journey featuring anxiety, insomnia, and self-conscious jogging as they explore their changing identity, question societal expectations of age and gender, and do their best to navigate the first chaotic year. Interweaving music, movement and medical texts with original poetry and animation, Dry Season is a witty, honest and intimate spoken word theatre show about questioning assumptions and learning to rewrite your story.


    Kat Lyons (they/them) is a Queer Bristol-based writer, performer, workshop facilitator and creative producer whose work is grounded in everyday politics and a love of storytelling. They are the current Bristol City Poet (2022-2024) and were nominated for the Jerwood Poetry in Performance Award 2022. Kat’s debut collection Love Beneath the Nails was published in Feb 2022 by Verve Poetry Press. They perform widely at poetry nights, festivals and events throughout the UK and are currently touring their first solo show, Dry Season, which explores menopause, age and gender. They believe everyone has a story to tell, and a voice worth hearing.
