An Oak Tree

National Theatre
15 July

Here, a bend in the road
where our lives change
forever. Here an oak tree stands,
our little girl, our love,
head full of music,
dancing fingers,
feet that kiss the ground.
Her heart is cold
but she will live forever,
young green leaves and acorns,
all the colours of the sky at dusk.

An Oak Tree, by Tim Crouch. Performed by the playwright himself and a different second actor at each performance. 

I saw the show at the National Theatre, performed by Tim Crouch and Samuel West.

An Oak Tree will also run at the Traverse Theatre as part of the Edinburgh Fringe, 9 - 16 August 2015

The King of Tiny Things

Udderbelly Festival, London
12 July

Better than fairies
these strange-legged creatures
that dance in the moonlight
and juggle with magic.

The King of Tiny Things is on national tour until 1 November 2015
