Kerry Hudson’s Lowborn is brought spectacularly to life and told in chip shops across the UK.
When Kerry Hudson was born, she was destined to be the latest in a long line of Aberdeen fishwives. You know her type: a life of grinding poverty, the worst flat on the worst estate, and bread and marge sandwiches before benefits day.
But Kerry had bigger dreams and the fight, humour and strength of her community to back her up.
Now a bestselling author and social activist, Kerry Hudson dons a chip-shop apron to give an intimate one-woman performance of stories from her working class childhood. Told amidst the sizzle of oil and the scent of vinegar, Kerry shines a light into the margins of life, and people you might recognise, in modern Britain.
Order your fish and chips and settle in for a event unlike anything you have ever been to before.
Featuring stories from Kerry Hudson’s books Tony Hogan Bought Me an Ice Cream Float Before He Stole My Ma and Lowborn.
